Bought the 1936 Big Christmas Wonder Book for a £1 from a carboot sale at the weekend and As I flicked through the pages I became slightly puzzled.The book contains poems and stories by famous authors and has many black/white illustrations, but there was a section illustrating the coronation of Edward viii.I knew he had abdicated but wasn't sure whether he had actually had a coronation .Having checked the internet today his coronation didn't in fact take place.

Interesting or what? George vi stepped forward to replace the uncrowned Edward .
