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 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.
