The Elizabethan Epic
by Lacey Baldwin Smith
Panther, 1969, black and white plates, paperback
Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, a little rubbing, creasing and spotting to covers and spine, previous owners details on front fly-leaf blacked out (see photographs)
"In this book - a Book Society Choice in its original hardcover condition - the most colourful era in our history springs to vivid life. Dominated by the powerfully enigmatic figure of Elizabeth I herself, the explorers, priests, adventurers, statesmen and soldiers of fortune who shaped an age and stamped it with a distinctive and flamboyant style live again in these pages."
