Library REBIND with clipped original paperback front cover laid down, library stamps/marks/labels/pocket, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid oversize hardcover.; "Reprinted from the Wiltshire archaeological and natural history magazine, vol. xvii, p. 47." Reverend Jackson details the historical circumstances surrounding the death of Amye Robsart, whose husband, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, was attempting to become the favorite, and husband, of Queen Elizabeth I. While discounting the historical accuracy of Sir Walter Scott's novel Kenilworth, and its plot of a deliberate murder of Amye Robsart to clear the way, Jackson lays out the motivations of those Elizabethans who birthed this account. An interesting piece of domestic Elizabethan history. ; Ex-Library; 49 pages.
