This is one of the most beautiful history books I've seen. The illustrations are wonderful and the book itself is top quality with large glossy pages. Each era of British/Irish history is represented in sections and though the information is not highly detailed I suppose it's because the book is so large in scope. A nice book to browse through if you're interested only superficially in British/Irish history.
