About This Item

1935. London: Hodder and Stoughton, (1935). Original beige cloth printed in red and blue, with dust jacket. First Edition (trade issue) of this "picture -- and some slight interpretation" of the reign of King George V, upon the occasion of his Silver Jubilee. Though Buchan observes that the time for an actual biography "has happily not yet come," the King did die only eight months later. (At that time this trade edition was reprinted to include a second epilogue and a photograph of the King's bier.) In addition to this trade issue, there were 500 numbered/signed large paper copies; there were also Canadian trade and signed issues, as well. (The American edition was titled THE PEOPLE'S KING.) This is a fine copy in a near-fine (very slightly soiled) dust jacket -- which is NOT price-clipped, and includes the separate "Daily Mail Book of the Month" wraparound slip. Blanchard A107.
