Maclise (1806-1870) was a successful painter and engraver in England; he was elected to the Royal Academy and illustrated books for Dickens, Tennyson, and others. In this book Maclise records the history of the Norman conquest, the 11th-century invasion and occupation of England by the Duke of Normandy, William the Conqueror against the last Anglo Saxon King Harold II. This first edition is bound in an oblong folio with 42 engraved illustrations!

“Though the reputation of his [Maclise’s] genre and dramatic pictures has declined from the height which it reached in his lifetime,this is not the case with his portraits or his great epical compositions. They are now widely acknowledged to be the greatest historical paintings of the English school, and D.G. Rossetti went even further when he wrote, ‘These are such “historical” pictures as the world perhaps had never seen before’.”(DNB).
