(4,25 Sterne; 28 Bewertungen)

A Child's History of England first appeared in serial form, running from January 25, 1851 to December 10, 1853 and was first published in three volume book form in 1852, 1853, and 1854. Dickens dedicated the book to "My own dear children, whom I hope it may help, bye and bye, to read with interest larger and better books on the same subject". The history covered the period between 50 BC and 1689, ending with a chapter summarising events from then until the ascension of Queen Victoria. (Wikipedia) (16 hr 20 min)

Very insightful view to the barbaric times that have proceeded our current madness. nothing has really changed I dare say, except for the executions etc, the corruption will remain as long as time lasts...

Shocking

(2 Sterne)

I wonder if Charles Dickens hated the Royal Monarchy because this books paints a picture of them as barbaric and cold hearted. He described that the fight to maintain the throne was paramount and no cost of life was too great. If this is indeed a true account then I would be mortified to have royal blood. They were awful.
