In original red cloth covers with gilt to spine and front. 526pp. In very good condition. Spine slightly faded, front partly faded. Edges lightly rubbed with slight scratches to front and spine. Mild foxing to edges. Browning to endpapers. Else clean and tight copy. Biography of the early years of William Pitt the Elder, Earl of Chatham who became Prime Minister in 1766. This book covers his youth, years in the Army and early days as an MP up to 1756. Perhaps Rosebery’s best work. In many ways Pitt was as complex as Rosebery himself. Both had complex private lives that biographers still have trouble understanding and both had many ups and downs in complex public careers.
