Murray, 1869 Elizabeth, 1558-1603. Court and courtiers Although there may be reprints found, this is the only copy of this printing with the revisions and corrections I have ever seen, thus extremely scarce. This summer I visited Versailles. I had watched the Versailles series that was on TV in England. It was an amazing show that left me wanting to see the castle, the art, the gold, and all there was. This book takes you to the time when Elizabeth lived. People did write back then, there wasn't a TV, computer, telephone, or other intelligence gadgets that we have now. People wrote letters, kept diaries, and hand recorded so much. 300 years after Elizabeth this was written because there was enough information and we can read all about her and her court, you are there. I have a bit of the first page of Chapter 1 below. The Index that I have is computer generated. Computer generation creates typos but it also uses the exact spelling that was used in the 1800's. So I really am not responsible for typos.

ON the 7th of Sept. 1533, at the royal palace of Greenwich in Kent was born, under circumstances as peculiar as her, after-life proved eventful and illustrious, ELIZABETH daughter of king Henry VIII. and his queen Anne Boleyn. Henry had for years been obstructed by delays and difficulties equally grievous to the impetuous temper of the man and the despotic habits of the prince, in the execution of his favourite project of repudiating, on the plea of their too near alliance, a wife who had ceased to find favour in his sight, and substituting on her throne the youthful beauty who had captivated his imagination. At length his passion and his impatience had attained a pitch capable of bearing down every obstacle. With that contempt of decorum which he dis- played so remarkably in some former, and many later transactions of his life, he caused his private marriage with Anne Boleyn to precede the sentence of divorce which he had resolved that his clergy should pronounce against Catherine of Aragon; and no sooner had this judicial ceremony taken place, than the new queen was openly exhibited as such in the face of the court and the nation. An unusual ostentation of magnificence appears to have attended the celebration of these august nuptials. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY BIDDING !)
