Ackroyd, Peter. Foundation: The History of England from its Earliest Beginnings to the Tudors. First U.S. edition. New York, Thomas Dunne / St. Martin’s Press, 2012. 16 x 24cm. 486 pages, with colour illustration plates. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition, like new.

Peter Ackroyd, whose work has always been underpinned by a profound interest in and understanding of England’s history, now tells the epic story of England itself. With his extraordinary skill for evoking time and place and his acute eye for the telling detail, Ackroyd recounts the story of warring kings, of civil strife, and foreign wars. But he also gives us a vivid sense of how England’s early people lived: the homes they built, the clothes the wore, the food they ate, even the jokes they told. All are brought vividly to life in this history of England through the narrative mastery of one of Britain’s finest writers. [From dustjacket notes]
