By Philip Guedalla

 Lord Palmerston, “the last candle of the Eighteenth Century”, served in the War Office, then in the Foreign and Home Offices before ascending to Prime Minister very late in life. This is the biographical account of a controversial man who shaped the future of the British nation and empire. Guedalla draws a portrait of the bygone era in well-researched prose that never dulls.
