I came across these fabulous little vintage books recently.
They are history books for children called Tales That History Tells. I managed to find parts 7 and 8.
They were written by Evelyn Smith and have illustrations by A Gordon. They were published in 1936 by The Grant Educational Co., Ltd, London and Glasgow.
They tell history in a simple but informative way and have wonderful black and white illustrations and maps throughout.
Each book has one colour plate.
What a great find! Aren't they wonderful!
