Alistair McAlpine, 1989 - Political Science - 432 pages
This book reconstructs in unprecedented detail the physical character of the court of Charles I (1600-1649). Drawing on inventories compiled in the months following Charles's execution, authorities in their fields assess the character and importance of Charles's possessions, including his incomparable paintings, the royal regalia, furnishings, gems and plates from the Jewel House, and pots and pans from the court kitchens.
