UK. The Folio Society 1975 2nd Edition Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Book 4to - over 9 - 12 
As with all monarchs who rule as well as reign, the gap between the public and private lives of the Tudors is a narrow one.The marriages of Henry VIII and the courtships of Elizabeth were affairs of state; just as the business of government was, in part, a matter of the sovereign's domestic routine. The selection of documents presented here is intended to reflect some of these aspects. This book is without its slipcase.

The Saxon & Norman Kings, Brooke, Christopher.
9 Brooke, Christopher. The Saxon & Norman Kings
UK B.T.Batsford Ltd 1963 1st Edition Hardcover Fair Poor Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
The author, while tracing the influence of the Monarchy in Saxon and Norman times, delineates in human terms the lives and personalities of such memorable kings as Alfred,Cnut,Edward the Confessor, William the Conqueror and Stephen. The book is particularly rewarding as a study, since Professor Brooke not only presents the results of research, he shows how these results have derived from source material itself often sparse, fragmentary and defective. The bright red boards are worn to the edges, there is a school prize label on the front paste-down, and there is an owners name in ink on the front end paper. The text block is lightly marked and mottled throughout The DW is worn and torn on the head and base of the spine and with chips and wearing to its edges.
