4886. England's World Empire Some Reflections Upon Its Growth and Policy, by Alfred Hoyt Granger (read 8 Dec 2011)

In this game I usually avoid titles which end in Y because it is hard to find a lot of book titles which start with Y and so the few that do are used quite a bit. But this book is listed only by me in LibraryThing. I got it on the last day of our public library's book sale (when the books are free) and found it well worth reading. I am sure it was donated by someone getting rid of books inherited--the book was published in 1916 and my 'review' of it tells what it says a little. I gave it four stars!
