Title: 1066 And All That (The History Book to End All History Books)
Author: Sellar, W.C.
Price: $29.95

75th Anniversary edition of a top-selling humour classic The first date in English History is 55 B.C., in which year Julius Caesar (the memorable Roman Emperor) landed, like all other successful invaders of these islands, at Thanet. This was in the Olden Days, when the Romans were top nation on account of their classical education, etc. Since its publication in October 1935 1066 and All That has itself becomes part of our humour history. The authors made the claim that 'All the history you can remember is in the book' - and, for most of us, they were probably right. But it is their own unique interpretation of events that has made the book a classic; an uproarious satire upon textbook history and our confused recollections of it. 4 million copies sold worldwide since original publication, and continues to sell strongly 75th Anniversary gift-book edition. The perfect humour title for Christmas Brand new illustrations by Steven Appleby (Bloomsbury's The Secret Thoughts of Dogs/ Cats/ Babies)
