The Story of Old France

H. A. GUERBER (1859 - 1929)

The aim of this volume is to give a complete graphic account of the main features of the history of France to 1715 A.D., with as much additional illuminating detail as limited space permits. Besides outlines of the principal events, this narrative includes many biographical sketches, together with the anecdotes and sayings to which allusions are often made in literature, politics, and arts. It also gives such data in regard to places, public buildings, and works of art as the well informed like to have at their fingers' ends. (from the Preface)
