Description
A collection of letters and ephemera of the British statesman and Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.
Background
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.
