Dealer Notes
Published posthumously. The memoir is by Emily Anne Smythe (nee Beaufort), wife of George’s younger brother Percy. George Sydney-Smythe is best known for his friendship with Benjamin Disraeli and their joint involvement in the ‘Young England’ movement, and for being the modal for the title figure in Disraeli’s novel ‘Coningsby’. A scarce title.
Author George Sydney-Smythe
Date 1875
Publisher London: Richard Bentley and Son,
Condition The casing isn’t really strong enough for these three vols combined and thus the joints are weak and contents a bit shaky. Light wear to cloth; occasional modest dust soiling to margins; slight fox
