The Companion to British History (ISBN 978-0-9560983-0-6) is a single-volume encyclopaedic reference work "bigger than a foundation stone, longer than the Bible" (Daily Telegraph) written by the sole hand of Charles Arnold-Baker and edited by his son Henry von Blumenthal in 1996 who, as proprietor of Longcross Press, published the First and Third Editions. It was described by The Spectator as "arguably one of the most remarkable books ever written". An account of how the book came to be written and published appeared as a feature article in the Daily Telegraph. The Second Edition was by Routledge.
