These reminiscences are unique in that they are written by a member of the Royal Family who lived for nearly twenty years in the reign of her grandmother, Queen Victoria, but was still active in 1960s contemporary affairs. Born at Windsor Castle in 1883, Princess Alice's early years were spent in close contact with the greatest in the land, since her father, the Duke of Albany, was a confidant and adviser to the Queen. Her book contains unpublished and hitherto completely private letters from Disraeli to her father, who was also the trusted friend of Disraeli's political antagonist, Gladstone.
This hardback book is in fair condition. The cover is wrapped in sticky-backed plastic, which has yellowed with age. Head and tail of spine are bumped. Some small scratches to the back cover. Pages are clean, white and undamaged throughout. However, there is a pull-out family tree at the back of the book which is rather creased.
