Description: Leslie conjures up the splendid frivolity of Charles II's court as she tells the story of the King's marriage to Catherine of Braganza, whom he called his "Little Rose".
Textured red boards. Jacket is in very good, unclipped (25s. 0d.) condition. The only flaws being some staining on the rear and scuffing at the head of the spine. Were it not for some staining and grubby marks on the tips of the page edges, the book itself would've been as new.
