Pp (6),1-204 + 4 pages of illustratio ns. 8vo, decorated cream and gold paper-covered boards. Major John McKenziePorter, MC, FRSA (b. October 21,1911, Accrington, Lancashire, England - d. October 21, 2006, Toronto). Halifax years on pp.75-99. "Overture to Victor ia reveals at long last the touching and tender love story of Queen Victoria's father and the lovely French countess whose name will go down to posterity as Julie de St. Laurent. For more than a century historians have tried to dispel the mystery surrounding the shadowy figure of the blithe and beautiful figure ot Julie, who bowed gracefully out of history in 1818 so that Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and fourth son of George III, might performhis dynastic duty of providing an heir to the throne of England. It was a mystery carefully guarded by the Queen, who, very naturally, preferred that Madame de St. Laurent be forgotten. McKenzie Porter's original and painstaking research throws a new and penetrating light on the much maligned character of the Duke. Based on unpublished material unearthed by Hector Bolitho in Switzerland, on records found in Martinique, and on interviews with direct descendents of Edward and Julie in Canada and in England, Overture to Victoria is not only an important contribution to the history of the bad old daysof the Georges, but a delightful and very intriguing story. - from the dj.
