The Cult of the Prince Consort
120 pages with numerous illustrations throughout. "The Victorian age is renowned for its sentimentality, its obsession with the ritual of mourning, and its taste for extravagant works of art. These characteristics reached their zenith in the frenzy of commemorative rituals and monuments that followed the death of Queen Victoria's beloved husband, Prince Albert. Mingling biography with cultural politics and art history, this absorbing book examines the motivation and consequences of the Albert cult." VG/VG (some minor shelf wear and a small closed tear on top edge of dj).
