John Murray, publishers, London - first edition ISBN:0719549205, 1991. hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Near Fine book in Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Twenty-five b&w photographic illustrations, bibliography and index. Spanning the raffish Regency and more sober Victorian eras, the sixth Duke of Devonshire was outstanding among his contemporaries for his enlightened views, and his sheer energy and vision. The inheritor of fabulous riches and a friend of kings, queens and princes, politicians, poets and artists, he was nevertheless devoid of snobbery. His closest friend was Joseph Paxton, his head gardener.
