Mistress Blanche

£39.99

Product description

Mistress Blanche was Queen Elizabeth 1's confidante. Until now little has been known about her. Extensive research has included examining original documents and translating poems. "The book brings to life the day to day realities of life in Elizabeth's household, throws new light on the way the court functioned, with all its hierarchies and intrigues, and reveals the selfless and influential role which the previously overlooked Blanche Parry played for so long."

Book has been read but has only slight creases to top and bottom corners of front cover, a light browning to top edges and to top of front free end paper. Spine is undamaged and binding is tight.

There are 14 colour plates and some black and white illustrations. The book contains comprehensive appendices and references and sources.
