The History of Germany, from the Earliest Period to the Present Time.
Translated from the Fourth German Edition, by Mrs. George Horrocks.
Later impressions, this translation of Menzel’s popular history was first published 1848-9. This copy with an 1860 Eton leaving inscription, “Robert Peel from his sincere friend Arthur Whittick”. Peel was the grandson of the statesman Sir Robert Peel. An attractive little set of a nineteenth-century standard work.
