Coronation: From the 8th to the 21st Century
This splendid volume is the first of its kind—a comprehensive history that sets each of Britain's coronations in its political, religious, and cultural context. Meticulously researched, it also examines celebratory poetry and a musical history of extraordinary brilliance. Illustrated with illuminated manuscripts, engravings, portraits, photographs, and images from film and television, this work as rich as its subject.
