The reign of Elizabeth I (1558–1603) has been described as England's golden age. It was a time when the country was peaceful, yet dynamic: expanding its borders, voyaging to the Indies and the New World, and creating an extraordinary cultural legacy. Published between 1950 and 1972, A. L. Rowse's history remains an unrivalled portrait of Elizabeth and her era. Rowse was a brilliant historian who laid an unprecedented emphasis on social history and the use of local archives. Above all, he had a talent for bringing the past to life. For him, Elizabethan England could still be seen everywhere, from country church to great house. 'The age is indeed all about us, as Elgar said of music: it is in the air all round, we have only to reach out and catch it.' The Folio Society presents his classic work in four beautifully illustrated volumes.
