About this Item

First Impression ("First published 1935" on copyright page), one of only 1500 copies. Small, slim 8vo; [10],11-96pp, with portrait frontispiece and two full-page illustrations. Publisher's black cloth, spine gilt; blue dust jacket, designed by Vanessa Bell, printed in red and priced 4s/6d. An excellent copy, square, tight and bright (apparently unread); Fine jacket, spine just barely toned. Scarce in such superb condition. Woolmer 360. The odd and unexpected life of Charlotte Stuart, Duchess of Albany (1753-1789), illegitimate daughter of the Jacobite pretender Prince Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie" or the "Young Pretender"), his only child to survive infancy. Her mother was Clementina Walkinshaw, mistress to the Prince from 1752 until 1760. After years of abuse, Clementina left Charles, taking Charlotte with her. Father and daughter were finally reconciled in 1784, when he legitimized her and created her Duchess of Albany. She left her own three illegitimate children with her mother, and became her father's care-giver and companion in the last years of his life, dying less than two years after him. Buchan was wife of the author (The Thirty-Nine Steps) and Governor General of Canada, John Buchan.
