97 AVAILABLE IN THIS CATEGORY
From the rise of the British Empire to its collapse, this series provides an unbiased view of the Empire's history and it's influence on the world. 

This series was re-issued by Orbis, the material is much the same as the first edition but the order of presentation varied slightly, with changes to the magazine cover in some cases, in particular the pictures on or inside the rear cover. As was common with these series the page numbers follow sequentially once the cover has been removed and bound to resemble an encyclopedia. 

This edition was housed in a plain blue binder with 8 volumes needed to contain the series. Unlike the first edition the page numbers at the start of each volume reset, making the titles the best way to determine missing issues. 

The covers often contained fascinating imagery and sometimes features on British Military Uniforms. As the series was intended to be bound, issues without covers are more readily available.
