Largely based on Black’s History Pictures, a series published by A. & C. Black in the early twentieth century, History Pictures for a Living Education has been designed with modern day students in mind, and is brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive. An edition of Black’s History Pictures was frequently recommended as a suitable resource for young students of history by Miss Charlotte Mason of the Parents’ National Educational Union, and we likewise recommend this collection of pictures as an excellent supplement for children and young people studying history today

Despite having been arranged to accompany the reading of living history texts, such as Our Island Story, by H. E. Marshall, or A History of England, by H. O. Arnold-Forster, this book can be used by students of all ages, forms, and educational philosophies studying British History, and makes an excellent companion to history readers and textbooks alike.

This book is printed on 200 gsm glossy paper and is spiral bound for ease of use. All pictures are clearly labelled and most include captions to provide context and continuity throughout.
