'This newly recovered version of The Duke’s Children reveals the book as a fully satisfying, completely realised final volume of the magnificent Palliser novels. Here, the writer is just as we would have him be, expansive, humorous, wistful, wise, as he creates this intricate and intriguing world for the last time; and at the centre is the opaque, melancholy, elusive figure of Plantagenet Palliser himself, Duke of Omnium, master of all he surveys, excepting only his children, his life and his soul. We were not told it until now, but The Duke's Children is a great work of fiction and a great work of art' THE LORD FELLOWES. Number 372 of a limited edition of 1890 numbered copies.
