From the cover: With an inspired flamboyance worthy of any medieval monarch, King George V renounced his German ancestry and proclaimed the House of Windsor on 17 July 1917. Kenneth Roses much acclaimed biography, published in 1983, told the story of the founder of the dynasty. Now the author has broadened his canvas to depict not only King George, his immediate family and his descendants down to the third and fourth generation; but also those hosts of courtiers, advisers and friends who even in an age of democracy are required to support the whole elaborate structure of monarchy.
Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Leans slightly. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.
