Tales That History Tells

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!

Love, Liz
