1 Hough, Richard (selected and with a Commentary by) Advice to a Grand-daughter - Letters from Queen Victoria to Princess Victoria of Hesse
London Heinemann 1975 0434348619 / 9780434348619 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Gold title on blue cloth boards which have a touch of wear to top and lower edges with some minor marks to front. Internally there is a small inscription to front pastedown else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket has fading to spine and is not price clipped. 24 illustrations. Genealogical chart of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. These letters were only discovered in the 1970's at Broadlands, the home of Princess Victoria's younger son, the Earl Mountbatten of Burma. These letters bring new light to bear on major world and minor domestic events, from the crisis with the Prussian court in 1888 to the Queen's agonized concern for her haemophilic children and grandchildren, from the assassination of the Tsar of Russia to her stalwart but fruitless efforts to persuade Princess's Victoria's sister to marry the eldest son of the Prince of Wales. Lord Mountbatten's elder daughter, Lady Brabourne, has provided a fascinating introduction. **** NOT EX LIBRARY **** **** NOT READERS UNION BOOK CLUB ****
