The Divine Lady

£8.99

Product description

E Barrington was the pen name of Elizabeth Louis Morseby. She came from a distinguished naval family. This is her most successful book published first in 1929, a couple of years before her death at 69. It was made into a film which was issued in both a silent and sound version in 1929. It is a fictionalised version of the relationship between Horatio Nelson and Lady Hamilton which scandalised and fascinated the public in the early years of the nineteenth century.

Hodder and Stoughton hardback with no DJ. It has to be admitted at the outset that this book is not in good condition. Thus the red boards with embossed pattern have some stains and the corners are somewhat bent. The spine cover is totally detached posteriorly and is somewhat grubby with small tears and wear to both top and bottom. The front hinge is sprung but still functional. The rear is fine. The text is clear although there is some tanning of the margins of the pages. The initials of a previous owner are on the ffep. A little foxing of the title page and the end pages. Altogether not a happy book but it is a interesting volume of its time and the English edition from Hodder and Stoughton is not all that common.

A bit of a mess - but priced to take that into account
