The Comic History of England was published posthumously in 1896 after the writer's tragic and untimely death half-way through the project. Hence it remains incomplete and covers the history of the island nation only up to the Tudor period. However, beginning with Julius Caesar, the Roman invasion of Britain, the Druids and Stonehenge, this book is still a rib-tickling ride through the centuries. Edgar Wilson ( Bill ) Nye was an American journalist. He was a trained to be a lawyer and was admitted to the bar.

Edgar Wilson "Bill" Nye was an eminent American journalist . Some of his notable works include: Bill Nye's Comic History of the United States, Baled Hay, Remarks, Bill Nye and Boomerang, Bill Nye's History of England, and Bill Nye's Red Book.

The text is amusing and clever. Harold did not merely die at the battle of Hastings, he "abandoned the fight in order to investigate the surprises of a future state."

On William the Conquerer:
"William's death was one of the most attractive features of his reign."

On the common people:
"The common people were cheerily permitted the use of what atmosphere they needed for breathing purposes, on their solemn promise to return it, and at the close of life... they might contribute to the fertility of the royal vegetable garden."

On serfdom:
"A serf was required to be at hand night or day when the baron needed some one to kick."

The illustrations are masterpieces of comic art; I bought this book for the pictures. The facts and dates are valid and the chronology and major characters are real, but don't take this book too seriously. There are so many characters it is hard to tell them apart. A royal blur of Edwards, Henrys, Williams, etc., over 1,500 years of British history, from Julius Caesar to Henry VIII. Not recommended for serious scholars, but fun if you are in the mood.

The writing is fabulous, but this version is a wreck. Chapter headings and pictures comments appear randomly in the text, and the font was obviously old enough that scanners didn't recognize many of the characters. Makes it far too difficult and annoying to read.
