Unmatched for scope and of peerless authority, The London Encyclopaedia distils the heritage of Europe's greatest city. Arranged alphabetically, nearly 6,000 entries explore every monument, building, street, park and suburb of importance, as well as events, institutions and themes relevant to the city's past glory and present vigour. Here, rich in detail, alive with wit and well served by two indexes, is everything anyone could possibly want to know about London. For the third edition of this well-established book, the text has been extensively revised and updated, taking London into the twenty-first century. Contemporary images have been added to the more than 500 period prints, drawings and photographs, while new entries cover a host of current icons and reflect the capital's cosmopolitan and multi-cultural dimensions. Mosques and temples challenge the ubiquitous churches, and the glazed geometry of corporate power is saluted. Everything of relevance to the history, culture, commerce and government of the capital is documented. From the very first settlements through to the skyline of today, The London Encyclopaedia comprehends all that is London. -- Publisher description

Charles I by Christopher Hibbert( Book )

27 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Charles Stuart was a young child, it seemed unlikely that he would survive, let alone become ruler of England and Scotland. Once shy and retiring, an awkward stutterer, he grew in stature and confidence under the guidance of the Duke of Buckingham; his marriage to Henrietta of Spain, originally planned to end the conflict between the two nations, became, after rocky beginnings, a true love match. Charles I is best remembered for having started the English Civil War in 1642 which led to his execution for treason, the end of the monarchy, and the establishment of a commonwealth until monarchy was restored in 1660. Hibbert's masterful biography re-creates the world of Charles I, his court, artistic patronage, and family life, while tracing the course of events that led to his execution for treason in 1649

In a field in Nottingham in the summer of 1642, King Charles I watched his standard being raised in a high wind and driving rain. For six years thereafter, England was rent by civil war. "Whole counties became desperate," in the words of a Suffolk gentleman. Families and friends were bitterly divided as men left home to fight for King or Parliament. Castles and towns, which a year before had been "scenes of happiness and plenty," were besieged and attacked
