Book Description

May 15 2012

Since Queen Elizabeth II succeeded to the throne sixty years ago Britain has seen huge social, political and economic change. As her people have celebrated the highs and mourned the lows, she has remained a constant and stable figure at the head of the world's most famous Royal Family. Through 12 Prime Ministers, four recessions, wars and a technological revolution, the Queen's determination to carry out her duties and to connect with the public has not faltered. Sixty Glorious Years celebrates her extraordinary ability to have secured a place in the hearts of generations of Britons. With rarely seen pictures, this book offers an unparalleled look at the life and work of the woman who looks set to become Britain's longest surviving sovereign.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality, Great Photos! May 20 2012
By Pat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very fine collection of photos of Queen Elizabeth and the Royal family spanning 1926 to the present. Most of these photos I had not seen before. Photos are clear, interesting and accurately captioned. The book is primarily a photo album without a lot of text, but it succeeds well as a pictorial archive of the Queen's reign. Yes, many photos are black and white--- but most were taken in the time when black and white photos were what we had. The book is heavy and the paper stock is good quality. It is bound well, not cheaply. The appearance of the book is lovely, I plan to purchase copies as gifts. I have many books of the British Royals and this is now one of my favorites.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even A Diamond in the Rough for the Jubilee May 14 2012
By Vincent Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book due to the fact that it was produced with content from The archives of The Daily Mirror one of the major news print media publishers in the UK. I was thinking that it would indeed become a collectors item for the Diamond Jubilee. "NOT"!!! The photographs are mainly black and white, the quality of the print is poor, and the assortment of photographs lack variety of events, and subject matter. In other words many pictures we have already been seen before! Take it from this official Anglophile. Don't waste your money! Looks like a rush job created to cash in on Diamond Jubilee Fever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book! July 14 2014
By Sekmet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It's a lovely book, with many pictures I had not seen before, which means that there are many pictures that you probably won't have seen either. This book traces QEII's glorious reign from the very beginning when she found out in Kenya that she was the Queen of England to the 60th celebration. It also delves briefly into the time when she was Princess Elizabeth. All the photos are crisp and clear (where the original was crisp and clear) and the text is very clear and well printed. The text assumes some knowledge of the Queen's career and does not talk down to the reader. I recommend this book if you are an Anglophile looking to increase your Queenly library!
