Queen Mary
Queen Mary | James Pope-Hennessy
1 post | 1 read | 3 to read
The award-winning biography of Princess May of Teck tells the moving story of her relatively impoverished childhood, her very significant reign, and her old age as the much-admired Queen Dowager. As official biographer, the author had the advantage of access to private papers and the cooperation of many people. A masterpiece of royal biography first published in 1959 and too long out of print.Booklist.

@shawnmooney and I are off on another royal buddy read and this one‘s a doozy ... 685 pages!

We vowed to read this one together after reading (and loving) The Quest For Queen Mary, which is basically the author‘s saucy secret notes compiled while he researched this tagged tome.

LeahBergen @Book_Fiend_Melissa @readordierachel Well, I don‘t think it was made specifically for books but it is a page clip of sorts! I had noticed years ago that antiquarian book dealers used them in their catalogues to hold books open and I found this one in a $1 junk bucket at a flea market several summers ago and rescued it. 😆 I‘ve actually used it a lot for Litsy photos (usually #FolioSociety books). 1y
LeahBergen @TrishB See, there he is! Just popping by to make sure I‘m not gossiping about him. 😆 @shawnmooney 😘 1y
