Uncorrected bound proof of ''Memoirs of the Whig Party During My Time'' by Henry Richard Vassall-Fox Holland and edited by his son Henry Richard Fox Holland. First of two volumes. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans: 1852. Octavo half leather association copy runs 276pp. and contains extensive editor's notes in ink. Vassal-Fox Holland was an English politician, the third Baron of Holland, and is widely considered the creator of the British Whig Party. Some shelf wear and separation at front and rear hinge, otherwise very good plus. Because it is an uncorrected bound proof, leaves remain untrimmed. A separate 2pp. drafted note from the son, as editor, is also included, the text of which is printed on one of the final leaves of the book. Fox's note reads: ''*Note by the Editor. My father abandoned this work at a later period of his life. The late Mr Allen commenced it, but also gave it up. The ample materials left by my father are now in Lord John Russells hands for that purpose. Holland.''
