A collection of letters and ephemera of
the British statesman and Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.
Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) was a British statesman and author. His career stretched over
six decades of 19th century English politics and society. In the 1830s he was much concerned
with novels and publishing, and with London society; after his election to Parliament in
1837, politics increasingly dominated his career. He married Mary Anne (Evans) Lewis in
1839. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer three times in the 1850s and 1860s; was Prime
Minister in 1868 and again 1874-1880; and was created 1st Earl of Beaconsfield in 1876.
