Queen Elizabeth, 1958, Series 561 (DJ)


The Story of the First Queen Elizabeth was the 5th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney.  Early editions were issued with a dustwrapper.  In this colourful telling of the life of Elizabeth, writer L du Garde Peach gives a very positive portrait or his subject and talks about other figures of the day, including Drake, Raleigh, Spenser, Shakespeare and Mary Queen of Scots.

This copy:

This copy still has its original dustwrapper which is not price-clipped.  It is in very good condition inside and out but for a couple of nicks to the back dj panel and the odd mark to the pages.  There’s a neat owner’s name on the front endpapers.    It dates from the early 1960s.
