This amazing first edition of the famous work about English History dates back to 1767. It was written by Mr Kimber and is the desired fifth volume. It is about Henry VII, Henry VIII and Edward VI. I read the entire chapter about Henry VIII and was amazed to read a 250 year old book about the infamous king, Anne Boleyn and all the affairs during that time. It is written in English language and is quite understandable even though it is so old. It has 3 beautiful copper engravings of the kings - including Henry the 8th made by C. Townley.
Title: The HISTORY of ENGLAND, as well ECCLESIASTICAL as CIVIL from the EARLIEST PERIOD to the Close of the Twelfth Parliament of Great Britain together with the History of Scotland, Ireland and the Neighbouring Kingdoms and States; so far as is necessarily connected with the Affairs of this Nation. Also of the Settlement, Progress &c. of the British Empire in AMERICA, from the first Discovery to the Present Time. In which the Dawn of Learning, Arts and Sciences, and their gradual Increase, are particularly displayed: And the Sources of all the great EVENTS and CHANGES in these Kingdoms accounted for, with the strictest Impartiality
