FINE/FINE.Neat owner inscrptn ffe,but no price-clip to protected dw/dj.Contents bright,tight and clean.Blue paper-covered boards with gilt letters to spine/backstrip,pale green endpapers. UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn,347pp includes colour portrait frntis,profusely illustrated with b/w photographs,notes on illus and an index. This is the first biographical study of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother that Her Majesty has authorised.Beginning with a personal audience at Clarence House this book is written with full permission to see people who are in contact with the Queen Mother in a variety of ways.They have talked freely to the author both of past years and of the present.Here, then is a remarkably fresh and full portrait.The study begins with Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother as she is today (1966),goes back to the early 1920's when,as Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon,she was betrothed to the King's son,moves on through her entry into royal and public life as Duchess of York to her years as Queen Consort,and finally 'the rebuilding of a life' after the death of King George VI. The four reigns which are the background of this story of a beloved figure cover war and peace,a changing England,changing society and changing concept of the Monarchy.Each part of the life of queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother faithfully portrays its period,and this,almost as much as the human relationships and royal events, gives this book its fascination.
