429 pages; A new book with a bumped spine foot and bottom corners. Dust wrapper is faintly rubbed and edgeworn.; ' In each of the past three centuries, a Prince of Wales has waited most of his life to become King. Each one disappointed his reigning parent, had an unhappy marriage, and conducted scandalous affairs. But only one gave his name to an age: the future Edward VII, Albert Edward, eldest son of Queen Victoria.

Drawing on previously unavailable, little-used or unknown diaries, letters, memoirs, and reportage from both sides of the Atlantic the author depicts the Prince and his worlds: his frustrating childhood, his introductions to gentlemanly sins at Oxford and Cambridge, his chilly marriage, and his constant escapes to balls, races, spas, and country houses, where he gambled, gourmandized, caroused, and whored. His string of "god-children" included some almost certainly his own. Yet despite, or because of, his flaws, "Bertie" was loved wherever he went. He was a natural diplomat, able to charm strangers and dance all night. When he toured the United States in 1860, he was a media sensation, and there was even talk of a marriage with President Buchanan's niece. His story is a picture of tragedy and farce—qualities that fit Edward perfectly for the role of modern monarch.'; Published @$30.00
