Pax Britannica Trilogy by James Morris
James Morris’s fascinating trilogy covers the history of the British Empire from 1837 to the 1960s, and covers everything from the East India Company to the independence of the former colonies around the world.
The books took ten years to write, and rather than being a strict history, Morris gives a more personal view from those involved in the events as they unfolded, from both the British and colonial point of view.
This comprehensive three volume set has 32 pages of prints, paintings and photographs in each volume. Each book is bound identically in blue buckram with a Victorian sovereign design in gold and blind on both covers and gilt spine title. There are different pictorial colour end leaves in each volume.
Full titles: Heaven’s Command – An Imperial Progress; Pax Britannica – The Climax of an Empire; Farewell the Trumpets – An Imperial Retreat.
