About this object

Library Journal April 1, 1989 A royal biographer par excellence , as is evidenced by Victoria RI , Elizabeth R , and The Queen Mother , Longford is ideally suited to edit this work. It is absolutely jam-packed with tempting tidbits, ranging from Henry VIII's witticisms to all sorts of entertaining comments about royalty by their contemporaries. A sentence or two by the editor sets the stage in each case, thereby giving the reader a sense of context, as well as making the anecdotal material that much more palatable
