The volumes are slightly small than most Penguin paperbacks. They measure 111 by 181 mm. They are remarkably dense, both physically (they use high-quality glazed paper) and with information. I cannot think of more information-rich volumes to fit easily into a jacket pocket.
Volume 1 runs from the origins of civilisation to the partition of Poland. Volume 2 runs from the French Revolution to 1990.
Volume 1 is available (in a newer edition than the one shown above) from amazon.com and from amazon.co.uk.
Volume 2 is available (in a newer edition than the one shown above) from amazon.com and from amazon.co.uk.
