Highly original and magnificent in scope, Albion: The Origins of the English Imagination discovers the roots of English cultural history in the Anglo-Saxon period, and traces it through the centuries. What does it mean to be English? This dazzling book demonstrates that a quintessentially English quality can be discovered in all forms of English culture, not only in literature but also in painting, music, architecture, philosophy and science. Witty, provocative and anecdotal, this is Peter Ackroyd at his most brilliant and exuberant. Includes an Index.

9 BRYANT, SIR ARTHUR. Set In A Silver Sea.
Doubleday & Company, Garden City: 1968. First U.S. Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Reading copy. 
This is a social history of England from the days of the first Stuart king, James, when England was largely an agricultural and rural country through the reign of Queen Victoria, when England had become the world's foremost industrial and Imperial giant. This is a social history in a very clear sense, because Sir Arthur, as is characteristic of him, never writes about historical events without showing how they affected the lives of the people - and not only the people of the highest classes of society, but all people, from courtier and king to peasant and yeoman. Includes an Index.
