    The text is amusing and clever Harold did not merely die at the battle of Hastings, he abandoned the fight in order to investigate the surprises of a future state On William the Conquerer William s death was one of the most attractive features of his reign On the common people The common people were cheerily permitted the use of what atmosphere they needed for breathing purposes, on their solemn promise to return it, and at the close of life they might contribute to the fertility of The text is amusing and clever Harold did not merely die at the battle of Hastings, he abandoned the fight in order to investigate the surprises of a future state On William the Conquerer William s death was one of the most attractive features of his reign On the common people The common people were cheerily permitted the use of what atmosphere they needed for breathing purposes, on their solemn promise to return it, and at the close of life they might contribute to the fertility of the royal vegetable garden On serfdom A serf was required to be at hand night or day when the baron needed someone to kick The illustrations are masterpieces of comic art I bought this book for the pictures The facts and dates are valid and the chronology and major characters are real, but don t take this book too seriously There are so many characters it is hard to tell them apart A royal blur of Edwards, Henrys, Williams, etc., over 1,500 years of British history, from Julius Caesar to Henry VIII Not recommended for serious scholars, but can be fun if you are in the mood

    I think I laughed about once The comedy, in my opinion, hasn t aged well I listened to this on audio Librivox and actually, the funniest part was that the readers themselves laughed sometimes Wish I could have beeninto the jokes like they were.

    Hlarious bit historical comedy no doubt a literary precursor to Mel Brook s History of the World Part I Worth the read and worth the Librivox listen.

    Bill Nye not the science guy conducts a humorous tour through the history of England A lot of the humor was funny 100 years ago, and much of the content was culturally relevant at the time of writing, which means I didn t get it, or did but didn t find it funny Still, there are a few zingers here to add to my commonplace book.


  6. Maria Valderrama Maria Valderrama says:

    Very funny interpretation of British history from a modern 1906 point of view It had me grinning to myself quite a bit However, it is necessary to have a pretty good idea of British history to understand the witticisms.
