To mark the Coronation of HM King Charles III on 6 May 2023, Hull History Centre is republishing online the souvenir booklet published by Hull Corporation (now Hull City Council) to mark the Coronation in 1937 of the King’s grandfather, King George VI.A poor condition book can still make a good reading copy but is generally not collectible unless the item is very scarce. True to its intent, it tells the story of Hull's relationship with successive kings and queens who granted rights and privileges to the city, beginning with King Edward I in 1299.

Hard back book comprising of 176 pages which includes the abdication of Edward VIII and the coronation of his brother George VI.

Cover is very slightly warped, with sole shelf wear on corners and spine, but retains its overall shape. The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. pages of B/w photographs of the celebrations plus people of the time around old buildings including the headmaster and staff of Charterhouse School in 1937. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. The first five chapters of the book are all about the history of the Great British Capital City and contain drawings and photographs from each time period.

This is a highly unusual example of a souvenir hand towel produced to commemorate the coronation of King George VI in 1937. There’s a description of the coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey, much of which we’re likely to see repeated on 6 May, and the booklet finishes with a description of the King and Queen’s visit, when still Duke and Duchess of York, to Hull in 1928. It also speaks of the ceremony that King George VI underwent in 1937 and the symbolic reasoning behind every action.There are extensive illustrated biographies of King George and Queen Elizabeth, which refer to their daughter (described as "a little maiden") who became Queen Elizabeth II.
