Pictorial History of the World's Great Nations
by Charlotte Yonge


These are quite lovely, richly and well-illustrated with beautiful engravings, and exceedingly hard to find. However, the good news is that the histories of the individual countries were published both as "Aunt Charlotte's Stories" and  "Young Folks' Histories". Some of these are available as free e-books--

Aunt Charlotte's Stories of Greek History

Young Folks' History of Rome

Charlotte Yonge was a wonderful and very prolific Christian author. You can access digital copies of many of her books at the Charlotte Mary Yonge Fellowship, at Gutenberg.org, and at Amazon.com. One not to be missed is her Book of Golden Deeds, which includes the wonderful story, "The Last Fight in the Coliseum".
