The Creevey Papers: A Selection from the Correspondence & Diaries of the Late Thomas Creevey, M. P., Born 1768--Died 1838, Volume 1 - Prim

by

Thomas Creevey (1768-1838) was a Whig politician, diarist and letter-writer, whose papers provide an important source for the history of the early nineteenth century. Although a relatively poor man, he was adept at making friends with important people, and received hospitality and financial help from them. His letters are full of gossip, often indiscreet, giving a vivid picture of the society and politics of the day. They form an interesting comparison with the papers of his contemporaries, J. W. Croker, who as a Tory was in power for most of the period in question, and Charles Greville (both available in this series). Creevey is perhaps best remembered for his description of Brussels during Napoleon's 'Hundred Days'. This two-volume work edited by Sir Herbert Maxwell (1845-1937) was first published in 1903. Volume 2 covers the period 1820-37, and the accession of Victoria, described here as a 'homely little being'. Hide synopsis
