Elizabeth & Leicester by Sarah Gristwood( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 987 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

Game of queens : the women who made sixteenth-century Europe by Sarah Gristwood( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sixteenth-century Europe saw an explosion of female rule. From Isabella of Castile and her granddaughter Mary Tudor, to Catherine de Medici, Anne Boleyn, and Elizabeth Tudor, women wielded enormous power over their territories for more than a hundred years. In the sixteenth century, as in our own, the phenomenon of the powerful woman offered challenges and opportunities. Opportunities, as when in 1529 Margaret of Austria and Louise of Savoy negotiated the "Ladies' peace" of Cambrai. Challenges, as when both Mary Queen of Scots and her kinswoman Elizabeth I came close to being destroyed by sexual scandal. A fascinating group biography of some of the most beloved (and reviled) queens in history, Game of Queens tells the story of the powerful women who drove European history"--

Fabulous frocks by Jane Eastoe( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 224 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

The story of Beatrix Potter by Sarah Gristwood( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To this day, Beatrix Potter's tales delight children and grown-ups around the world. But few people realise how extraordinary her own story is. She was a woman of contradictions. A sheltered Victorian daughter who grew into an astute modern businesswoman. A talented artist who became a scientific expert. A famous author who gave it all up to become a farmer. In The Story of Beatrix Potter, Sarah Gristwood follows the twists and turns of Beatrix Potter's life and its key turning points including her tragically brief first engagement and happy second marriage late in life. She traces the creation of Beatrix's most famous characters including the naughty Peter Rabbit, confused Jemima Puddleduck and cheeky Squirrel Nutkin revealing how she drew on her unusual childhood pets and locations in her beloved Lake District. She explores too, the last 30 years of Potter's life, when she abandoned books to become a working farmer and a pioneering conservationist, whose work with the National Trust helped to save thousands of acres of the Lake District a legacy that, like her books, continues to enrich our lives today

Elizabeth & Leicester by Sarah Gristwood( Recording )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 29 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
