About This Item

Jonathan Cape, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First edition, first printing.Internally clean and unmarked, natural age browning to upper and lower closed text block; unclipped jacket, slight creasing to top of spine. The author has taken the collected letters of the Verneys and turned them into a fascinating story of life in the Civil War and Restoration. The Verney family characters are all uniquely human with frailties and aspirations that are recognisable today, especially in how Sir Ralph Verney tries to maintain the family fortunes, have his sons shoulder responsibilities and marry well with large dowries. The women are not in the background and show how they rebel to the strictures placed on them by society. Adrian's own views stay in the background except for some, for him, shocking revelations as to personal conduct. Its a surprisingly readable page turning insight into how an aristocratic family copes with being torn apart by the Civil War. 592 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
