Hardback. The Yelverton Marriage Case was the greatest cause celebre of the 1860s. Part of the reason was the remarkable character of the woman concerned. In any age Theresa would have been outstanding, but in Victorian Britain, she was especially so. She was, she claimed, married legally to the Major the Hon. W.C. Yelverton, heir to Viscount Avonmore. Yelverton admitted her seduction but denied the marriage. The author tells the story of tense trials, retrials, rigged evidence, slander, courage and betrayal. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 296pp. 8vo. h/back. Vg. in Vg. dw.
