The first edition of this lavishly illustrated ode to Queen Victoria, published upon her death in 1901. The first edition of this work. Queen Victoria was the Queen of England for sixty-three years, coming to the throne in 1837, and reigned until her death in 1901, also absorbing the title ‘Empress of India’ during her reign. She was a fascinating woman, having a well-known ardent love for her husband, Albert. This biography looks at her personal and political life and sheds an interesting light on her as a woman and her reign over England. Published upon the death of Victoria. With a colour illustrated title page, one colour plate, and numerous in-text and full page illustrations throughout. Written by John Campbell, the Marquis of Lorne and the Duke of Argyll.
