Every now and then a truly valuable, must-have reference book becomes available to the general public. Even more rare is the reintroduction of a treasured-but-out-of-print classic reference. Such is the case with Archbishop James Ussher?s survey of world history, The Annals of The World.
Considered a classic work of literature as well as esteemed for its precise and accurate reportage from the beginning of time through the first century A.D., this volume has not been published in the English language since the 1600s. The Annals of the World relates information and footnotes to history that would have otherwise been lost forever. Lives of both the famous and infamous including pharaohs, Caesars, kings, conquerors, thieves, pirates and murders are documented here, as well as the rise and fall of great and not-so-great nations.
Ussher?s The Annals of the World is essential for libraries of all sizes. Universities, public and private schools, professors, independent scholars and pastors will find a treasure trove of material almost completely inaccessible for three centuries. Containing many human-interest stories from original historical documents collected by Ussher, this is more than just a history book ? it is a work of history in itself.

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1581, Archbishop James Ussher devoted himself wholly to the defense of the Christian faith. This highly educated, well-traveled historian spent several years writing the history of the world from creation to A.D. 70. Originally published in Latin, it has been translated exclusive for Master Books from its original language.
