These are the second and third volumes in the series, published in 1951 and 1964. From the front flap of both: "History is of value and significance for a number of reasons. From it we are able to extract the distilled wisdom of human experience. It links the present with the past. It throws light on the path ahead. It strengthens our morale. We must not forget who we were yesterday, if we are to realize who we are today."

Text blocks are tight, bright and unmarked. VG+ hardcovers. Jones' book is bound in green cloth over boards with slight wear at the tips of the boards and the foot of the spine. The title is in dulled gilt on the spine. Lindsey's book is bound in brown cloth with some shelf wear at the head and foot of the spine. The title is in bright gilt on the spine.

The unclipped dust jackets ($3.00 for Jones; no price for Lindsey) have been in clear sleeves for some time, so have been largely protected. The wrapper for Jones' book does have a 1/4" chip at the foot of the spine, a tear at the head of the rear panel and other shallower chips along the edges. The wrapper for Lindsey's book has some shallow chips along the edges. The yellow of the spine is sun-faded and there is a light 3" tide mark on the lower half of the spine, which gets darker at the bottom 1/2" inch. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.
