A PICTURESQUE TALE OF PROGRESS was written by Olive Beaupré Miller, assisted by Harry Neal Baum, former professor of history at the University of Wisconsin. The set includes 8 volumes (with separate Index) divided into 4 themes: Beginnings, Conquests, New Nations, Explorations. Dawn Chorus is also publishing a condensed set bound in 4 volumes. 'Picturesque' here refers to the many beautiful illustrations and maps that give this work its unique value.
This volume is part 2 of the "Conquests" theme, and covers the history of Rome and the early days of Christianity up to Constantine.
