Reviews

LJ Reviews 1989 April #1

A royal biographer par excellence , as is evidenced by Victoria RI , Elizabeth R , and The Queen Mother , Longford is ideally suited to edit this work. It is absolutely jam-packed with tempting tidbits, ranging from Henry VIII's witticisms to all sorts of entertaining comments about royalty by their contemporaries. A sentence or two by the editor sets the stage in each case, thereby giving the reader a sense of context, as well as making the anecdotal material that much more palatable. Teachers needing to add spice to their lectures, speakers to their presentations, writers to their books, will find this work invaluable. It entertains as it informs and belongs in most public and academic libraries.-- James A. Casada, Winthrop Coll., Rock Hill, S.C. Copyright 1989 Cahners Business Information.
