Lady of the Sun - KAY, F. George

Frederick Muller, 1966, Hardback ..
Condition: Very Good. Endpapers somewhat soiled. A few marks to the boards. Overall a tight, pleasant, copy.

Black cloth with gilt titling to spine. Illustrated with B&W photographs. No one knows for certain when or where she was born or where her remains are buried. Her parentage is a matter for conjecture. The reason she was invited to join the royal household remains a mystery. The number of children she had, and who their father was, is obscure. No portrait of her exists, and the only contemporary description of her appearance is an allegorical one by England's first great poet. Yet for a few years Alice Perrers, mistress of Edward III, was the best-known woman in England. She was by far the wealthiest lowly-born woman of her era. 205pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")
