The frontispiece has a large colour photograph of a Queen Victoria painting by F. Winterhalter dressed in her Robes of State. The title page is profusely illustrated in gilt, green and pink and gives the publisher as Harmsworth Brothers Limited. Sixty Years a Queen has 239 numbered large pages that details the reign of Queen Victoria and are packed with large one-page and smaller black and white photographs.
The original binding is in Very Good condition with dust staining and darkening to the spine. However, this book is in excess of 100 years, is extremely large and so is incredible to be in its original state. The pages are in overall Very Good condition with spotting to the endpapers and creases to the front free endpaper and rear endpaper, but otherwise extremely clean.
Sixty Years a Queen is wonderful book to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee that will make a great addition to any collection of Royal Family memorabilia.
