DETAILS

A first edition autobiographical exploration of the life, and influential figures surrounding Algernon Bertram Freeman-Mitford, 1st Baron Redesdale.

Illustrated throughout including photographic plates, sketches and watercolours. Featuring a photographic frontispiece with tissue guards to both volumes.

"My life, indeed, has been largely spent amongst men who in many lands have made the history of their time. The story of their public achievement is, or will be, written in the annuals of their countries. The story of their private lives is often unknown to, and therefore put on one side by their biographers. To rescue from oblivion here and there some intimate feature, some pretty detail which may help to make known the real personalities of such men."

Complete in two volumes.

CONDITION

In a half morocco bindings with marbled boards and gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, smart with only slight rubbing to extremities and sunning to the front boards. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean. Copperplate ink inscriptions to front endpaper of both volumes. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
