Elizabeth & Leicester by Sarah Gristwood ( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume explores England's Queen Elisabeth's attachment to her beloved Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester. Fueled by scandal and intrigue, their relationship was questionable in sixteenth-century England. Soon after Elizabeth became queen she scandalized the royal court with her passionate obsession with the married Robert Dudley. When Dudley's wife mysteriously died two years later, there was rampant speculation that Elizabeth and Dudley would marry. Instead, over the next decades they formed a working partnership and an intimate bond of mutual dependence. Robert advised Elizabeth, serving as her counselor, unofficial consort, and army commander. He guarded her sickbed and represented her on state occasions. But despite her devotion, Elizabeth humiliated him, made him act as a go-between with her other suitors, and tried to imprison him when he finally remarried

Fabulous frocks by Jane Eastoe ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No item of clothing has endured for longer than the dress. Yet the last century alone has seen the most radical changes of style--hemlines swinging from ankle to thigh, outlines alternating between the body-hugging and the bell--and our fascination with the frock has not gone away. From Gres' draping to Dior's New Look, from Mary Quant's mini to Hussein Chalayan's mechanical marvels, this book looks at the dress in 20th-century fashion. Thematic chapters--Changes, Feminine, Sex, Must-Haves, Fantasy, Classical, and Art--set out the inspirations and implications for each new change alongside the stunning photography.--From publisher description

Elizabeth & Leicester by Sarah Gristwood ( Recording )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few relationships fire our imagination like that of Elizabeth I and her "bonnie sweet Robin"--The Earl of Leicester, Robert Dudley. But not in almost half a century has there been a book dedicated to exploring and disentangling the emotive, often contradictory facts about their lifelong love. Rather than retelling a story we already know, Gristwood seeks to untangle the myths and stories that surround this fabled partnership. Elizabeth & Leicester is a portrait of two people who forged their age; of a relationship where, unusually, a woman held all the power; of an edgy yet enduring love that still stirs us today
