Overview

This antiquarian volume constrains a biography of Edward Geoffrey, 14th Earl of Derby. It is an attempt to sketch the career of Edward Geoffrey rather than a comprehensive biography, but contains a wealth of interesting information about his life, career, and mind that will be of considerable utility to anyone with an interest this most indomitable of political characters. The chapters of this book include: 'Whig Days', 'Position of Parties when Mr. Stanley entered Political Life', 'His Early Speeches', 'His Canningism', 'His Criticisms of Peel's attitude toward Emancipation', 'The Whigs and Reform', 'The First Ten Years of Lord Dervy's Conservatism', etcetera. Many antiquarian books like this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
