Description


Spanning the decades, this revealing guide to the words of Her Majesty is an inspiring tribute to a remarkable woman.

Queen Elizabeth II is a force of stability in a turbulent, changing world.

Revered for her calm dignity and sense of duty, the queen has rarely put a foot wrong in her 69 years - and counting - on the British throne. Her extraordinary reign has seen many changes: in 1953, the year of her Coronation, Winston Churchill was prime minister, Harry Truman President of the United States, and Joseph Stalin leader of the Soviet Union.

The Queen rarely lets her guard slip, but when she does, she often reveals a biting wit. Spanning the decades, this revealing guide to the words of Her Majesty is an inspiring tribute to a remarkable woman, and the perfect gift for any royal fan.

I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else: I can give you my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.' First televised Christmas address, 1957.

'My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family.' Public statement, 13 January 2020.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
