Catherine the Great: Life and Legend
New York, Oxford University Press Inc, USA. 1989, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-19-505236-6) Hardcover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Empress of the vast Russian Empire by the age of 33, Catherine's private and public life generated tremendous controversy, and she has been portrayed variously as a political genius, a despotic foreign adventuress, a tyrant, and a nymphomaniac. John Alexander's detailed research draws on little-known sources, including Catherine's love notes, to produce a balanced appraisal of this remarkable woman throughout the whole of her long reign. Very Good/Very Good.
