Description

First published in 1884, this book contains a biography of Princess Louise Maximilienne Caroline Emmanuele of Stolberg-Gedern (1752–1824) written by Vernon Lee. Often referred to as the Countess of Albany, she was the wife of the Jacobite claimant to the English and Scottish thrones Charles Edward Stuart. A fascinating biographical sketch not to be missed by those with an interest in British History. Violet Paget (1856–1935), also known under the pseudonym Vernon Lee, was a French-born British writer famous for her supernatural fiction and contributions to the field of aesthetics. She also wrote more than a dozen books on a variety of subjects ranging from music to travel, and today she is best remembered for her original ideas and amusing use of irony. Contents include: “The Bride”, “The Bridegroom”, “Regina Apostolorum”, “The Heir”, “Florence”, “Alfieri”, “The Cavaliere Servente”, “The Escape”, “Rome”, “Antigone”, “Separation”, etc. Other notable works by this author include: “The Prince of the Hundred Soups: A Puppet Show in Narrative” (1883), and “Miss Brown” (1884). Read & Co. History is proudly republishing this classic biography now in a new edition complete with a dedication by Amy Levy.
