“A couple of years ago I found a marvellous set of 10¢ books at Woolworth’s — all pictures, but covering British history from neolithic times to the present in considerable detail. Everything illustrated — events, persons, architecture, landscape, costume, articles in common use — a veritable pictorial museum.” (Lovecraft letter to Lee McBride White, 20th December 1935)

Possibly this was the British ‘Everyday Life / Everyday Things’ series, written for intelligent older children, and mostly now online:

* Everyday Life in the Old Stone Age

* Everyday Life In The New Stone, Bronze And Early Iron Ages

* Everyday life in Roman and Anglo-Saxon times (not online)

* A History of Everyday Things in England : 1066-1499

* A History of Everyday Things in England: 1500-1799

* A History of Everyday Things in England : 1733-1851

* A History of Everyday Things in England : 1851-1934
