About this product
- DescriptionJohn Cam Hobhouse, Baron Broughton (1786-1869), politician and prolific memoirist, is today best remembered for his close friendship with Lord Byron, and as the inventor of the phrase 'His Majesty's Opposition'. He travelled extensively in Europe with Byron, and acted both as his best man and as his executor after Byron's early death in 1824. He began his political career as a radical, but gradually moved to a much more conservative viewpoint. This six-volume work is a revision of his 1865 privately printed memoir, Some Account of a Long Life, expanded by his daughter from his diaries and letters, and published in 1909-11. Volume 1 concerns his parentage, his meeting with Byron at Cambridge, and their travels together. Hobhouse had literary ambitions, and published accounts of their visits to Italy and to Albania, the latter being particularly successful, as it covered a little kwn area of Europe.
