First Edition


12 1/2" x 10 1/4"

An album of photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor drawn from a stash of images found under the wooden lid of the bathtub in the Duke's bathroom at their Bois de Boulogne mansion. The pictures offer a unique look at the private lives of the couple; following the pair through childhood, youth, the beginnings of their relationship and thirty-five years of married life. Family snapshots are mixed with formal portraits, all supported by Hugo Vickers' commentary and history of the couple's lives.
