THE ROYAL VICTORIANS: A PICTORIAL BIOGRAPHY., Judd, Denis.

Author Name    Judd, Denis.

Title   THE ROYAL VICTORIANS: A PICTORIAL BIOGRAPHY.

Publisher    St. Martin's, New York, 1975.

Seller ID   25484

207 pp, large 8vo (9 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "(T)ells the public and private story of an unusual 'rake's progress'. For the first sixty years of his life Edward had fought against respectability and - in so doing - confirmed the low opinion of him held by his mother, Queen Victoria. Yet, by the time of his death in 1910 only nine years after succeeding to the throne, he had become the symbol of security to a society which was uncertain and deeply divided within itself. Kept i n ignorance of State affairs by his mother, Edward spent his life as Prince of Wales pursuing pleasure and freely indulging his passions for the chase. Horses, yachts, cars and spas were among his favorite pastimes, while scandalous liaisons with ' professional beauties' nearly proved his undoing. Succinctly and entertainingly, with the aid of 250 photographs, prints and drawings, (the author) describes the life and reign of one of England's most flamboyant kings. In private life Edward VI I was a devoted husband to Alexandra and an excellent father to their children (the future George V called him 'my best friend and the best of fathers'), and once he was in office his conviviality and natural gift for diplomacy proved invaluable in en ding Britain's policy of 'splendid isolation'. It was only fitting that he should give his name to an era." Previous owner's small Christmas notation, place, date and signature on free front endpaper along with a faint erased pencil mark; light to moderate edge wear, a few tiny tears at top/bottom of spine along with light wear. Dust jacket has light wear/tiny tears at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small sticker removal marks on front flap, light fading to color on panels, some ar eas of light edge wrinkling, light rubbing.
