Field Marshal Lord Birdwood’s copy of the standard biography of Lord Curzon.


Ronaldshay, Earl of: The Life of Lord Curzon. Being the Authorized Biography of George Nathaniel, Marquess Curzon of Kedleston, K.G. Ernest Benn [London] 1928 3 volumes 8vo

THREE VOLUMES COMPLETE. Vol I: 10 plates, 318pp; vol II: 12 plates, 424pp; vol III: 13 plates, 456pp including index. Original blue cloth but spines very faded and boards somewhat spotted and marked, internally quite clean. The chief merit of this copy is that each volume has the armorial bookplate of Field Marshal Lord Birdwood [1865-1951] who served in India in the 11th Bengal Lancers and was Military Secretary to Lord Kitchener during the time of Curzon’s Viceroyalty. This 3 volume set is heavy and will be rather expensive to overseas.
