P., PB Atheneum PP New York YR 1966 AB "[Lord Beaverbrook], powerful press lord and confidant of Edward VIII, believed that a monarch deserved the same private rights as his humblest subject. While filling the role of a trusted foul-weather friend, he was also compiling a diary of events. From this evolved a full narrative, completed in 1958 but laid aside. Unknown to his closest associates, the manuscript was found among personal papers after his death." -- Taken from dust jacket.
