An Atlas of Ancient and Classical History Printed in London 1907
An Atlas of Ancient and Classical History
by Samual Butler, printed in London 1907
"The present Atlas has the advantage of being the result of the successive labour of many hands. Its original author was Dr. Samuel Butler, sometime head-master of Shrewsbury school and afterwards Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry. He edited Aeschylus, and was in his way a famous geographer. The work was at a later date twice revised, and its maps were re-drawn, under the editorship of his son. It has now been again revised and enlarged to suit the special needs of this series. " Wonderful coloured maps of ancient Europe, North Africa and the Near East. A fascinating series. LIST OF MAPS

Mussolini's Roman Empire by GT Garratt. An indictment of England and her responsibility in the conquest of Abyssinia (of which she knew in advance and to which she actually gave assent) and of the French progress in the Spanish Civil War (which she has aided by taking the position of non-intervention, and ignoring the active part taken by Germany and Italy and making impossible support of the existing government). Step by step, her involvement is traced, as the story of Mussolini's ambitions and achievements is unrolled. The author, who was the Manchester Guardian correspondent during the Abyssinian war and spent most of last year in Spain, thinks Mussolini more dangerous than most Englishmen believe. “In every country bordering on the Mediterranean,” he says, “people are asking: why don’t the English take Mussolini’s ambitions more seriously?” Click below to order and download the pdf ebook (27mb).
