The following four volumes are from a series on the lives of the Queens of England; they were published in 1861 and written by Agnes Strickland - her details are on Google! The green covers are faded, worn, and the spines on two have become detached although all the pages appear tight. They are fascinating to read showing as they do a somewhat less objective style than modern historians like, but a valuable insight into the mores of her own time.
The volumes and contents are as follows:
1) Matilda of Flanders; Matilda of Scotland; Adelicia of Louvaine; Matilda of Boulogne; Eleanora of Acquitaine; Berengaria of Navarre; Isabella of Angouleme; Eleanor of Provence; Eleanora of Castile; Marguerite of France; Philippe of Hainault; Anne of Bohemia.
2) Isabella of Valois; Joanna of Navarre; Katherine of Valois; Margaret of Anjou; Elizabeth Woodville; Anne of Warwick; Elizabeth of York; Katherine of Aragon; Anne Boleyn.
