Title: A Journal of the Reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1852. Complete in Two Volumes.
Description: New York, D. Appleton. 1885. Hard Cover. 576 pp, 598 pp, 8vo (8" H), olive green cloth with gold lettering and banding on spines, gold crest on front boards. These two volumes form the second part of 'The Greville Memoirs' which began with the reigns of George IV and William IV, but are complete in themselves, being numbered Vol. I and Vol. II. "(T)he present publication embraces a period of fourteen years, extending from the accession of Her Majesty Queen Victoria in 1837 to the coup d'etat of Napoleon III in 1851. The occurrences which took place after the close of 1851, the subsequent establishment of the Imperial power in France, the formation of the Cabinet of Lord Aberdeen, followed in 1853 by the Crimean War, mark an important epoch in the history of this country and Europe. I have therefore thought that this date is the appropriate conclusion of this portion of the work. Mr. Greville continued his Journal for nine years more, until the close of 1860, though in his later years he was less conversant with public affairs than he had been in the more active period of his life." From the Preface. Vol. I has a small bump to bottom corner of approx. first 50 pages, small finger print on verso of front free endpaper, small bump to bottom corner of rear board, small light stain at top fore-edge of textblock - scattered tiny faint foxing marks on lower fore-edge, small line scuff on front board. Vol. II has tiny crease/tear at bottom of two pages. Both volumes have light browning to edges of textblock, light to moderate edge wear. slight bump at some corners, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Very Good-/No Jacket.
