A Chronicle of England: B.C. 55 – A.D. 1485 was written by James William Edmund Doyle (1822–92) in 1864. It was illustrated with 80 drawings by Doyle, rendered as coloured engravings by Edmund Evans (1826–1905). As many as ten colours were used in these engravings, which Doyle said were to show "clearly and truthfully the action depicted."[1] The book depicts events from the landing of the Roman legions on English soil to the Battle of Bosworth Field near the end of the Wars of the Roses.
