Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0007160550, Paperback)

This splendid volume is the first of its kind—a comprehensive history that sets each of Britain's coronations in its political, religious, and cultural context. Meticulously researched, it also examines celebratory poetry and a musical history of extraordinary brilliance. Illustrated with illuminated manuscripts, engravings, portraits, photographs, and images from film and television, this work as rich as its subject. 

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:19 -0400)

This is a definitive history of coronation and the Royal Family, from the acclaimed writer Roy Strong. He sets each coronation into its political, social, religious and cultural context.
