‘But 15 years of age, Isabella Clinton is brought from her country manor to be gentlewoman to the little Queen Isabella, child-wife of England’s King Richard II. She is able to comfort and befriend the little girl through all the political intrigues and dangers of court life, and to share with her the bitterness of Richard’s overthrow by his cousin Bolingbroke. The tragic story of Isabella of France is beautifully told through the sharp, but gentle eyes of Isabella Clinton and the book gives a vivid picture of life in England at the court of Richard II.’ Stunning dust-wrapper and illustrations by Rome Scholar and ex-pupil of William Rothenstein at the RCA, Evelyn Gibbs. No inscriptions, highlighting or underlining. Binding strong. Pages clean and bright. Dust-jacket price-clipped with some slight creasing and wear to edges and to top and tail of spine. End-papers ever so slightly foxed.
