About the book:

1066 and All That: A Memorable History of England, by Walter Carruthers Seller and Robert Julian Yeatman, illustrated by John Reynolds. English History served up a la carte - a unique and hilarious spoof. Described as the first inexpensive edition of that hilarious travesty of English history which has been keeping people in stiches ever since it first exploded on the world in 1931. This famous spoof is an irresistible, riotous guide to practically nothing, for it is history written almost exactly the way you recall it, meaning a fine disregard for annoying details. Other histories, as the authors remark, "have previously been written with the object of exalting their authors. The object of this History is to console the reader. No other history does this." 1066 includes one hundred and three good things, five bad kings, and two genuine dates, with nothing added or subtracted from all the original confusion. A Dutton Paperback. E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., New York SBN 0-525-47025-5.
