Format: Hardcover
This book is superb. It is written as a catalogue and as such would not expect it to be very exciting. But the presentation is suberb. The printing and layout is of great quality and the articles very well written. The introduction by Starkey is short but superb. The book is split into sections and each section has a very well written introduction of several pages. The description of the catalogue items are very good and the photographs well chosen. You can read this as a catalogue to the exhibition or as suberbly illustrated introduction to Elizabethan England. The Exhibition organisers have done a tremendous job and this catalogue does them proud.

Format: Hardcover
I seen many documentaries and read some books on the life and times of Elizabeth I, and what they don't show you are the objects, papers, jewels and clothes which I believe are the magic behind Elizabeth's reign - The book brings to life this golden age of Britain.

It is great that every object shown has a brief description, which is understandable to read in context with Elizabeth herself. In other words, this book is accessible to all - which some other books on her life are not.

There are a few suprises between the pages, and David Starkey's writing is as always imaginative and speaks direct to the reader as if he is speaking to you face to face.

I really to recommend this book to fellow Tudor enthusiasts - a great read!

Format: Hardcover
This really is an excellent value catalogue. Containing not only descriptions of the items on display at the Maritime Museum, but lavish colour pictures of most of them. The item descriptions have a wealth of information including dates and provenance as well as literary references. The background information about the period is an excellent source of historical information, and the whole volume is very well presented. A must for any devotee of the sixteenth century, there are a large number of personal items belonging to or given by Queen Elizabeth I which have not been illustrated before in such a book.

This handsomely illustrated book, published to accompany the major exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich to mark the 400th. anniversary of Elizabeth's death, arrived in pristine condition and is an invaluable source book for any student of the Elizabethan period. It will remain a treasured possession and I am immensely grateful to have been able to obtain it. Thank you.

Format: Hardcover
The best thing about living in England is having the chance to see something as magnificent as this exhibition. Congratulations to Susan Doran and her crew for putting together such an inspiring, informative and enjoyable exhibition. This exhibition catalogue has to rate amongst the best. All the items in the exhibition are included. The illustrations are not disappointing as can sometimes happen. The essay contributions are well written and help to bring alive the Elizabethan World. If you have seen the exhibition and loved it as much as I did, the catalogue is a must; relive the magic!. For those of you who didn't get a chance to see it this book will help salve the wounds somewhat. Though you do have until September 14th (2003) to see it, so HURRY!!
