John Richard Green ( 1837-1883) was an English historian whose influential and popular "Short History of the English People" first appeared in 1874. Its immediate success was due to Green's engaging style and concentration on the lives of common people. This work did much to popularize history. Unfortunately, poor health prevented Green from publishing much more. This edition has 4 volumes, organized as follows : Vol. 1 - Pages 1 to 468 pages with 14 plates, complete; Vol. 2 - Pages 469 to 931 with 10 plates, complete; Vol. 3 - Pages 932 to 1409 with fold-out, color illustration of London Bridge and 5 plates, complete; Vol. 4 - Pages 1410 to 1906 with 5 plates, chronology, family tree of the British monarchs, index, corrections and additions, Each volume also has numerous maps and in-line illustrations, with a complete list of illustrations with notes in the front.
