First thus. Top edge of second volume lightly bumped in two spots, small dealer bookplate on rear endpaper of each volume. 1927 Hard Cover. xiv, [2], 568, [2]; xiii, [3], 602 pp. 8vo. Original green cloth, gilt titles, top edges gilt. Frontispieces of Queen Adelaide and Queen Victoria, various portrait plates in text. A detailed journal originally published in three large parts comprising eight total volumes. The first part, published in 1874, was widely suppressed after Queen Victoria and others expressed outrage at its tone and content. It would not be republished until the original manuscript was acquired by a New York bookseller who contracted with Doubleday to print it (this is the edition offered here). The editor puts Greville's work on a footing with the diary of Samuel Pepys, and goes even further to say that Greville's style is more lucid.
