Kings and Things — First Stories from English History - H. E. Marshall

Galore Park, 2006, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.

First in this edition. [First: 1937] From the cover: “These stories of English history have been written in the hope that Mothers and Nannies and other great Potentates of Nursery Land will read them to their obedient Subjects in the Story Hour which so often precedes the tragic necessity of ‘going to bed’. In such an hour small people are often beguiled with fairy-tales, with myths and legends. But the most interesting story of all — the story of their own Country — is not infrequently neglected. It is so neglected because it is thought to be a story too frightening or too difficult for the very young person’s understanding.
