Yup, hardcover, first edition, 1967. No dust jacket, but other than that, it's perfect. All the photos and fold out genealogical tables are in place. I'm so pleased I found something good for once!!!
I'm positive I will enjoy it. I think my book for university may be abandoned for the next few days, as I am going to get stuck in now; you've all given it such a glowing review!
It's amazing how certain things can inspire an interest that stays with us for our whole lives. For me, it was a battered copy of 'Kings and Queens of England' that had as a small note next to Princess Alice that her daughter had been the last Empress of Russia and had been murdered. Before the internet, this was, so I headed down to the local library to find out about this Empress of Russia...and well, here I am, ten years later.
Hessian Tapestry must be amazing if it's what has inspired you, Marlene. Your work, I hear, (still can't afford a copy of QVD, so can't comment from personal experience) is wonderful, and you're so knowledgable. Look at me, suck up of the century! But it's true; I'm amazed by how much you know. And if David Duff inspired you..I'm going off to get myself inspired asap!
