Description:

Paperback. 2776 pages. Dimensions: 11.1in. x 8.7in. x 4.1in.A lawyer by profession, Theodore Martin (1816-1909) gained literary distinction as both a humorous essayist and versatile translator.

Commissioned by Queen Victoria to memorialise her late husband, this five-volume work was first published between 1875 and 1880.

The volumes cover Alberts youth, his marriage to Victoria, the births of their children, Alberts role during the Great Exhibition and the Crimean War, and his protracted illness and death at the age of forty-two. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781108059848
