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.

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.

I'm a huge follower of the British monarchy. Been staying in England for almost 10 years i have come to learn much about the way the monarchy works and how important is it. Trust me - - the UK is way better with a monarchy and with Queen Elizabeth II as the official Head of State. I admire the way the Queen works and i have to say - - i salute her. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN :)

About this book - a must have for any Royal fans - - - but i did hope for more ''un-seen before'' photographs. All of the images presented in this book are just beautiful and crystal clear.

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!

The photography is wonderful. All those years captured exquisitly. I was 10 y.o. at the accession (sp.?) and the memories flooded back. I was lucky enough to greet the Queen at Windsor Castle....she really is as charming as portrayed.
