Product description

Coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (1937) - pair of commemorative books
 
A nice matching pair of original vintage souvenir hardback books with decorative red and blue cloth bindings, published to mark the Coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (12 May 1937), both including many black and white illustrations.
 
Although both books show some signs of age (see condition description below), they remain overall in very good order, and as such would make a lovely addition to a collection of British royal memorabilia - or a late 1930s or 1940s period room setting.
