1904. Two Volumes in One. And a biographical preface by Robert Arnot. Known as a dandy, a novelist, a brilliant debater and England's first and only Jewish prime minister, Disraeli (Earl of Beaconsfield) is best remembered for bringing India and the Suez Canal under control of the crown. One of his earlier novels, Vivien Grey is a coded account of his own burst of manic activity over the fiasco of the Representative newspaper; the novel includes an important and original exercise in German Romanticism.
