Sharon Turner

A spiritual history of the world by the great historian of Anglo-Saxon england. This volume considers human nature and how it is to manifest the Divine Plan, before beginning a history from Adam and Eve, prehistory, classical times to the division of the world into more modern nation states. A fascinating text, scholarly in its research yet intimate and personal in its interpretations. 8vo. A nice full leather binding, with gilt decoration and raised bands. Marbled endpapers with matching marbling to page edge. Inner and outer dentelles. Previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Contents clean and binding tight. Very good.
