Format: Hardcover
This book was sloppily produced. Typographical errors permeate. There are distracting mistakes in some of the captions, too, such as that for a picture of a gray bearded, corpulent Prince of Wales supposedly taken in 1863 when he would have been a man in his early twenties (p. 205). The author -- and his subject -- deserve much better. The publisher deserves a spanking.

...on the part of the publisher and author to get something this great in print and fail to have it professionally edited. The cost of the color plates, binding, and printing must have been enormous, and the thing reads like a 6th-grade paper that hasn't been proofed. Pity.

The book arrived in a timely manner - it was everything I expected. It came from a seller on Amazon not directly from Amazon - Wonderful book and a wonderful love story. The book holds alot of historical information about England which is what I was looking for - but it also tells of a love story that is rare in this day and age.
