THE ACCESSION OF QUEEN VICTORIA
June 25, 1837
One of the most complete accounts of the legendary Queen’s accession to the Throne of England ever published. This issue contains sixteen pages describing Queen Victoria, the late William IV (very lengthy biography), a complete eyewitness account of the royal procession from Kensington to the Palace of St. Jame’s, and and a report titled: “QUEEN VICTORIA THE FIRST. THE ACCESSION.” When Victoria arrived at St James’s, “….a double royal salute was fired from the guns in the park, and responded to by merry peals from the bells of St. Martin’s and St. Margaret’s….The instant she presented herself all were uncovered, and at the same moment a loud and enthusiastic cheer burst from the assembled multitude. Again and again it pealed upon the ear, mingled with the fervent prayer of “Long live Queen Victoria.”
16 pages, complete, and disbound from a volume many years ago. Four pages including the cover are bordered in black in mourning for the late King William. Fine condition throughout. A most historic event in British history.
