John Hervey wrote detailed and brutally frank memoirs of the court of George II from 1727 to 1737. He gave a most unflattering account of the King, and of Frederick, Prince of Wales, and their family squabbles. For the Queen and her daughter, Princess Caroline, he had a genuine respect and attachment, and the Princess’s affection for him was commonly said to be the reason for the close retirement in which she lived after his death.

 

This 1848 first edition includes a frontispiece in volume one of a bust of the author & in volume two the copy of a medal depicting George II, Queen Caroline & their children by John Croker Esq, the first engraver to the Mint in 1735!
