At Agincourt: A Tale of the White Hoods of Paris
 Picture
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1896 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "The long and bloody feud between the houses of Orleans and Burgundy - which for many years devastated France, caused a prodigious destruction of life and property, and was not even relaxed in the presence of a common enemy - is very fully recorded in the pages of Monstrellet and other contemporary historians. I have here only attempted to relate the events of the early portion of the struggle - from its commencement up to the astonishing victory of Agincourt, won by a handful of Englishmen over the chivalry of France. Here the two factions, with the exception of the Duke of Burgundy himself, laid aside their differences for the moment, only to renew them while France still lay prostrate at the feet of the English conqueror. At this distance of time, even with all the records at one's disposal, it is difficult to say which party was most to blame in this disastrous civil war, a war which did more to cripple the power of France than was ever accomplished by English arms. Unquestionably Burgundy was the first to enter upon the struggle, but the terrible vengeance taken by the Armagnacs, - as the Orleanists came to be called, - for the murders committed by the mob of Paris in alliance with him, was of almost unexampled atrocity in civil war, and was mainly responsible for the terrible acts of cruelty afterwards perpetrated upon each other by both parties.."

Publisher: Milton Bradley Company, 1919 Springfield, MA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall The Children's Hour Series. "I have written this book because I believe that the story of the American people as it is embodied in the history of our United States supplies the most important material for character building in the entire field of elementary education, and should be offered to children in a new, humanitarian way as a means of helping them to understand the present. The plan of this book is to present the development of our nation, not as a summary of unrelated facts and a confusion of dates, but as one of the most vivid panoramas the world has ever known, its first scene laid on Plymouth Rock and its last the flight of an American aviator winging his way over a battlefield in Europe. The historical episodes that make this panorama are selected and presented in such a way as to show boys and girls that our present position as a great people is the result of following the road of freedom we have been building steadily ever since the landing of the Pilgrims, and that real democracy can be really efficient, not only in the case of our own nation, but in our relations to the other peoples of the world.." 243 pages.

"In all the pages of history there is no record of a struggle so unequal, so obstinately maintained, and so long contested as that by which the men of Holland and Zeeland won their right to worship God in their own way, and also - although this was but a secondary consideration with them - shook off the yoke of Spain and achieved their independence. This incidents of the contest were of a singularly dramatic character. Upon one side was the greatest power of the time, set in motion by a ruthless bigot, who was determined either to force his religion upon the people of the Netherlands, or to utterly exterminate them. Upon the other were a scanty people, fishermen, sailors, and agriculturalists, broken up into communities with little bond of sympathy, and no communication, standing only on the defensive and relying solely upon the justice of their cause, their own stout hearts, their noble Prince, and the one ally across the ocean.." 401 pages + 14 page catalogue of books for boys.

Brown, Slater, 1896-1997 / Kredel, Fritz, 1900-1973  
Gray Bonnets, In the Days of Roger Williams [by] Slater Brown; illustrated by Fritz Kredel.

Publisher: New York, Aladdin Books, c1954..
192 p. : illus. ; 21 cm. This historical novel for juveniles is about the persecution of Quakers in Massachusetts in the 1650's. For Slater Brown it had implications because he, with E.E. CUMMINGS, had been detained in the "enormous room" by the French on dubious gronds and in 1953 when this was written, Joseph McCarthy and the Republicans were fanning the same flames that burned books in Boston 300 years before. So both Brown and Kredel, who had fled Nazi Germany, knew the perils of tyranny and used this historical tale to convey the danger to young Americans. Stock# 102,607. Vg / dj good+, worn, small tears.
