Королевские слуги и яковитский двор в Англии...
Особенно упало значение субдепартамента Рабочей или “Ближней” комнаты (Privy Chamber), который в тюдоровский период был ведущей структурой двора. В 1632 г. камергеры Рабочей комнаты короля подали Карлу I петицию, в которой жаловались на то, что после 1603 г. их положение сильно изменилось, в то время как до этого момента они имели самый близкий доступ к королеве (Елизавете Тюдор). При Якове I Стюарте слуги Рабочей комнаты были фактически лишены того исключительного положения при дворе и той близости к монарху, которыми они обладали с момента выделения “Ближней” комнаты как отдельного субдепартамента при Генрихе VII. Они вновь перешли под контроль и юрисдикцию Лорда-камергера Палаты, а их обязанности по обслуживанию повседневной жизни монарха были переданы слугам Королевской Спальни. С 1603 г. они не имели доступа в личные королевские апартаменты, пределом их возможностей стала ближняя галерея (Privy Gallery), ведущая в Спальню. Естественно, что вместе с этим они потеряли былое политико-административное влияние. За слугами Рабочей комнаты остались почти исключительно церемониальные и полуофициальные функции.

|One Hundred Details from the National Gallery Yale University Press Clark K. |
One Hundred Details offers Kenneth Clark' s personal choice of details of paintings in the National Gallery, London, and his responses to them. First published in 1938, when he was Director of the Gallery, Clark chose the pictures he liked best, in the hope that we will come to like them too. The details are arranged in pairs, enabling us to see analogies and contrasts between paintings that are rarely viewed together - a faun from Piero di Cosimo, a satyr from Rubens. The commentaries are Kenneth Clark at his best, ranging from a few lines to an entire history of still life between Giotto and Picasso. The easy style makes no attempt to conceal the breadth of the author' s erudition: world history and world culture are taken at the gallop and with a smile.

|The Lambs Of London Random House, Inc. Peter A. |
It is no surprise when Mary falls for the bookseller' s son, antiquarian William Ireland, from whom Charles has purchased a book. But this is no ordinary book - it once belonged to William Shakespeare himself. And William Ireland with his green eyes and his red hair, is no ordinary young man. . . The Lambs of London brilliantly creates an urban world of scholars and entrepreneurs, a world in which a clever son will stop at nothing to impress his showman father, and no one knows quite what to believe. Ingenious and vividly alive, The Lambs of London is a poignant, gripping novel of betrayal and deceit. Mary Lamb is confined by the restrictions of domesticity: her father is losing his mind, her mother watchful and hostile. The great solace of her life is her brother Charles, an aspiring writer.
