Rachel, Lady Russell  
Letters of Rachel Lady Russell
 Picture
Publisher: Parry and M'Millan, 1854 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Antiquarian hardcover. Lord Russell, the author's husband, was implicated in the Rye Plot of 1683, a plan to assassinate King Charles II of England. "..It is unnecessary to dilate on the merits of letters which have long been familiar to the public. Those merits are separate and distinctive; the letters are not letters of business connected with political events; they are not letters of wit and humor written to show the talent of the writer; they are not, alas! the overflow of a heart at ease, playful and sparkling, or mingling with smooth flow in the current of the world. The 'Letters of Lady Russell' as originally published contain but one topic and one resource-that topic the judicial murder of her husband-that resource the strength of a soul sustained by all the fortitude of a heroine, and chastened by all the piety of a saint. This edition will contain, besides the letters of that melancholy period, those of a time of wedded joy, few in number, indeed, but valuable, as showing how deep was that happiness which the tyranny of a voluptuous king broke into and destroyed.." 388 pages with index. Book is in GOOD or better condition; binding tight; text pages clean without foxing. No dust jacket.
