Life of Robert Marquis of Salisbury Vol. 1, 1830 - 1868
London, Hodder and Stoughton Limited, 1921. Hardcover. 8vo, pp. viii, 353. Lady Gwendolen Cecil is the daughter of Robert Marquis of Salisbury. "The articles which Lord Salisbury contributed to the 'Quarterly Review', for the most part between the years 1860 - 1870, though often written under the influence of controverisies which have long since vanished, contain many passages illustrative of his more permanent attitude and opinions. Some of them offer themselves directly as biographical material. This is noticeably so with those dealing with the Reform question in their bearing upon the struggle which culminated in his rupture with Mr. Disraeli in 1867. But with others, this is not the case, and their inclusion in the body of this book would have hampered the development of its story. A certain number of extracts have therefore been placed in an appendix to this volume, grouped in connected form under three headings of Foreign Policy, Church and Religious questions, and Finance." Bookplate, light scuffing to edges, top edge dusty; very good in spine-sinned, edge-scuffed, very good dust jacket. black & white illustrations.
