The first of the two ‘Kings and Queens’ books of the 1960s, written by L du Garde Peach. This title was later revised – first to give it a new-look cover and then subsequently it was completely re-written and re-illustrated (taking away just about all of its considerable charm in the process).
The vivid, startling illustrations of the original version are by Frank Hampson. All the other history books of this era (Series 561) are illustrated by John Kenney.
Excellent condition, inside and out. This copy dates from the late-1960s and has the original price 2/6 stamped on the back
