Has everything, from spirits and nerves to gallantry and vanity (Johnson) including The Beggar's Opera and popular Ballad's. Discussions on Baronage, Black Slavery (Equiano) and wider geographical aspects and the romantic period covers Oliver Cromwell.

Excellent. It seems pricey, but not when you see how many books and authors are included. It's great for Uni work and much better than buying all of the individual works. The covers are quite thin and therefore a bit fragile for such a big book, especially if you use it often, so it may be worth covering it to keep it in better condition. Again, if using for work or uni, the online access (via password inside the cover) is really useful for understanding the texts better, with quizzes, more detailed information, and revision resources. The whole book is quite bulky, so I recommend this ABC version, as it's split into 3 volumes. Much easier to carry around and read comfortably.
