About this Item

London 1968, reprint of 1915 edition, hardbound in dj, VG/VG condition ( very light dj wear), 6 x 9, 34 & 272 pages, appendices, a few illus & maps, index.---------------------In his introduction to this new edition Herbert Butterfield describes Frederick the Great and Kaiser Joseph as Temperley's 'raciest piece of non-stop narrating and his most colourful finished work - the whole mixture to be taken in one breath'. And in describing the events of the 'potato war', the problem of Bavaria, the peace of Teschen and the dynastic tangle of the Diplomatic Revolution Temperley reveals the great interest he felt for the characters of Frederick II and the Emperor Joseph II. First published in 1915 this remains a stimulating account of mid-eighteenth century European politics.------------------"Mr Temperley has rightly made his monograph not merely an elaborate note to the documentary sources, but a study of the whole business from beginning to end, with an excellent sketch of eighteenth-century Bavaria and portrait sketches of the two protagonists - the impetuous emperor at Vienna, whose picture Frederick kept in his cabinet in case (which was not likely) he should be tempted to forget him, and the experienced king at Berlin, toujours en vedette.".
