V. R. I. Her Life and Empire

by The Marquis of Lorne [John Campbell]

Condition: Very Good

ont> Unknown : Unknown, 1901 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A charming and copiously illustrated detailed exploration of the life and reign of Queen Victoria; written by the Marquis of Lorne, John Campbell. John George Edward Henry Douglas Sutherland Campbell, 9th Duke of Argyll and the Marquess of Lorne, was a renowned British nobleman and fourth Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883, who married Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, Princess Louise, on 21 March 1871. This work is profusely illustrated throughout, with copious photographic plates and in-text illustrations. However, this work is lacking any coloured plates, and the colour illustrated title page. This copy is lacking a title page, and hence has been dated using the copyright imprint to the half title page. This copy features two loosely inserted film programmes ('Cinegrams') for the 1937 historical drama 'Victoria the Great', and the 1938 film 'Sixty Glorious Years', starring Anna Neagle (Dame Florence Marjorie Wilcox). Neagle's role as Queen Victoria in 'Victoria the Great' was deemed her most prestigious performance of her career, and was such an international success that it resulted in Neagle revising the role in the all-Technicolor sequel 'Sixty Glorious Years'. Condition: In a quarter crushed morocco binding with cloth covered boards, featuring elaborate gilt embellishment to the front board. Externally generally smart, with slight bumping to extremities and rubbing to joints and head and tail of spine. Small sections of light rubbing to boards. Small bookseller's label tipped to front pastedown. Prior owner's ink inscription to front free-endpaper. Internally firmly bound. Pages slightly age toned to extremities but very bright, with the odd handling mark to the occasional page. Small tape repair to lower extremity page iii/iv, not affecting text. Small ink stamp to rear pastedown. Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed.
