1 Farr, Evelyn Marie Antoinette and Count Axel Fersen - The Untold Love Story
London Peter Owen 1995 0720609607 / 9780720609608 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with gold title on green boards with near Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. 256 pages. 7 illustrations. The life and tragic death of Marie Antoinette have over the centuries assumed almost mythical proportions. During her lifetime she was the 'Austrian whore', accused of every imaginable sexual and political crime, and in the 19th century the guilt-ridden French tried to atone for their wrongs by reinventing her as a saint, pure and unsullied. Her love for her Swedish paramount, the chivalrous Count Axel Fersen, was glossed over or suppressed. In this book Evelyn Farr peels back layers of misinformation which have continued to obscure the fateful story of the Queen's great love affair.
