About This Item

London: Harmsworth Bros Ltd, 1901. Leather. Good. 13" by 10". Not Stated. A detailed and illustrated exploration into the life and reign of Queen Victoria. Copiously illustrated throughout, with many photographic plates and decorative bordering. Featuring two coloured frontispieces which both depict Queen Victoria at different times in her life. John George Edward Henry Douglas Sutherland Campbell, 9th Duke of Argyll, usually better known by the courtesy title Marquess of Lorne, by which he was known between 1847 and 1900, was a British nobleman and was the fourth Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883. He is now remembered primarily for the place names bestowed on Canadian geography in honour of his wife and for his metrical paraphrase of Psalm 121, "Unto the hills around do I lift up". Rebound in a straight grain morocco binding. Externally, a trifle rubbed, with some wear to the extremities and spine label. Slight evidence of past worming to the front board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean, aside from the odd handling mark, as well as some light spotting to the first and last leaves. Good
