A Year at Hartlebury or The Election, Disraeli, Benjamin and Sarah
3 Disraeli, Benjamin and Sarah A Year at Hartlebury or The Election
London John Murray 1983 0719540208 / 9780719540202 First Thus Hard Cover Very Good Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A Very Good+ unmarked copy which has a small blind embossed personal stamp to front endpaper, a corner crease to top of one page and a little light foxing to closed edges with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 221 pages. Appendixes by Ellen Henderson and John P. Matthews. The revelation that a long-forgotten novel first published anonymously in 1834 is the work of Benjamin Disraeli and his sister Sarah is an exciting literary event. Newly discovered letters between brother and sister prove without doubt that it was written jointly by them. We do not have to look far for the reason for their secrecy. The vividly described election which forms the centrepiece of the story is clearly based on Disraeli's recent experiences as an unsuccessful candidate in two elections at High Wycombe. The hero of the story, Aubrey Bohun has, like Disraeli, recently returned from mysterious travels in the East, but unlike him has his own castle and an income of 30,000 pounds a year. **** NOT EX LIB ****
