1 Hickman, Katie Daughters of Britannia - The Lives and Times of Diplomatic Wives
London Harper Collins 1999 0002557142 / 9780002557146 First Hard Near Fine Very Good+ 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from age toning to page edges)with VG+ dustjacket which is price clipped. xxviii + 323 pages. 29 illustrations. A mixture of poignant biography and marvellously entertaining social history. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Vita Sackville West and Lady Diana Cooper are among the well-known wives of diplomats who represented Britain in the far-flung corners of the globe. Drawing on letters, private journals and memoirs, as well as contemporary oral history, the author explores not only the public pomp and glamour of diplomatic life, but also the most intimate, private face of these women, many enduring harsh, isolated circumstances, long journeys, primitive or no medical facilities, even kidnapping and assassination attempts.
