Macmillan's History Pictures

Yesterday's serendipitous discovery: Macmillan's History Pictures.  Designed for schools, I guess they must be post war.  Various artists were used, some well known such as Rowland Hilder who painted 'The Departure of the Mayflower 1620'.  Ahh, the 'right but repulsive' Puritans.  I think the 'Gentleman and attendants hawking, time of James I' may be by Alan Sorrell.  I bought seven - six for me and one for the bf - try to guess which one!  Each one is A2 size.
