Each of the original maps is reproduced in colour, so that you can decide whether you prefer to choose your own colours, or to use the colours that the cartographer intended. With key facts about each of the maps, this is the perfect book for geography lovers, history buffs and colouring-in fanatics alike.

Exclusive illustrations to colour in carefully selected from the British Library's archive. Before the invention of the printing press, books were written out by hand, and were priceless objects.

The animal illustrations have been sourced from a range of documents, including charters and seals and historical and literary manuscripts, from Homer to the Codex Sinaiticus, from Beowulf to Chaucer, and from Magna Carta to the papers of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Each of the original drawings is reproduced in colour, so that you can decide whether you prefer to choose your own colours, or to use the colours that the artist intended. With key facts about each of the animals and their source, this is the perfect book for animal lovers, history buffs and colouring-in fanatics alike.

This seasonal compendium collects together poems, short stories, and prose extracts by some of the greatest poets and writers in the English language.

G. Wodehouse's wry story about Christmas on a diet. Enjoy a Christmas Day as described by Samuel Pepys, Anthony Trollope, George Eliot, or Nancy Mitford. Venture out into the snow in the company of Jane Austen, Henry James, and Dickens's Mr. Pickwick. Entertain the children with the seasonal tales of Dylan Thomas, Kenneth Grahame, and Oscar Wilde.
