Title: The Undergrowth of History. Some Traditional Stories of English History Reconsidered. Historical Association. 1955. G. 30
Description: London England, The Historical Association, 1955. 1st Paperback Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo Booklet Booklet. The Undergrowth of History. With a Foreword by the President of the Association. When we think of Alfred and the Cakes or Canute and the Waves we seem to be digging deep into the folki0memory of this part of the world; and, apart from discovering the truth of the matter - we want to learn something about the stories themselves, just as we want to learn about an old church or an old carol. Whether the events which they narrate ever took place or not, the stories themselves have become a part of the reality for us - more real than the cakes or the waves - more vivid than much of what academic people would call history. 32 pp.
