Christopher Hibbert

If you missed the news, the prolific popular historian Christopher Hibbert passed away last December. Two of his most famous books The Rise and Fall of the House of Medici (1974) and The French Revolution (1981) are still regularly sold here at Abbey's.

Rome: The Biography of a City is also regarded as one of his best works, and the third edition of The London Encyclopedia came out last year. Some of his other books we carry include biographies of King Arthur, Mussolini and Nelson.
