The Oxford Book of Royal Anecdotes.
Yes, this book is as much fun as the title suggests. Sources range from medieval chroniclers to modern biographers. Tables of genealogies are provided. The editor sets the stage for each anecote with helpful vignettes, insight into the sources, and historical background. Very light foxing on page ends, previous owner bookplate, otherwise very good condition. 546 pages of fun. Oxford University Press. Hb, Dj. 1989. USED. $5.00
