[DILKE, SIR CHARLES WENTWORTH]. - The Fall of Prince Florestan of Monaco. By himself.

London, Macmillan 1874. Octavo half calf (a small chip from the spine); [4],79pp, map and one plate. Ex parliamentary library with their gilt crest on the front board and incorporated into the spine, no other markings; scattered spots but a good copy. ¶ First edition and something of a hit - printed in March there were three more printings by July. A light hearted satire charting the fate of a radical Cambridge educated prince attempting to apply liberal reform; and meant to satirise the British public's view of Dilke and his republican leanings. Offered anonymously to Macmillan, apparently they first refused it because it had too many slighting references to Dilke himself. When published it was taken by many to be an attack on Dilke by Matthew Arnold.
