The Magna Carta, Shakespeare's King Lear folio, Titanic's distress-call telegram, the instrument of abdication of King Edward VIII, Winston Churchill's "finest hour" speech, a ticket to an early Beatles concert...these are just six of the fifty important British documents profiled in this fascinating illustrated "scrapbook." Packed with intriguing accounts of each document's role in the island nation's storied history, Treasures of British History also includes ten removable pieces of memorabilia - among them the Duke of Wellington's Waterloo dispatch, an 1888 letter by Jack the Ripper, and Elizabeth I's letter to her sister, Queen Mary, begging not to be thrown into the Tower of London. Anglophiles and history buffs will relish this "walk" through British history! (KG)
