Perth – Historical Society

The Royal Western Australian Historical Society had a book sale on the weekend at the society’s headquarters in Broadway, Nedlands, where we purchased a biography by Daphne du Maurier called “Golden Lads”. Published in 1975, this book describes the life of Anthony Bacon, the less famous brother of Elizabethan era philosopher and courtier, Francis Bacon.
Anthony Bacon was secretary to Robert Devereux, the 2nd Earl of Essex, and sometime favourite of Elizabeth 1. The book has interesting insights into life and politics in the Tudor period and the cultural life of London at that time, including the theatrical world of William Shakespeare.
