By Molly Kimmel on March 26, 2015
Format: Hardcover
This is a nice book. Buying it, I thought it would be a wonderful book full of photos of Queen Victoria and her family. However, I would say about 60% of the book is full of non-Queen Victoria photos and photos of random people and things that don't really make sense. At the back of the book there is a good number of pages dedicated to the Queen and Price Albert and their nine children. The photos of them are fabulous and wonderful but I just wish there were more and that they would have cut all the nonsense pictures out. Nonetheless, wonderful book for anyone who loves royalty or the Victoria period of photography.

This is a wonderful book for those interested in the history of photography and the history of England. We are fortunate that Queen Victoria took an active interest in photography which has led to a series of wonderful images of privileged English life in the Victorian era which contrast vividly with the grim scenes of Charles Dickens and others.
Many of the photographs contained in this book are new to me. This book is a welcome addition to my library.

Has many interesting photographs of Queen Victoria. I only wish they included more stereoscopic photographs in the book which would have made it more interesting
