Mémoires and L'Histoire de Dix Ans, besides works like Theodore Juste's Memoirs of Leopold I., the histories of the Revolution of 1848 by Lamartine and Garnier Pagès, and Mr. Spencer Walpole's admirable History of England, which includes also the Crimean War and the Indian Mutiny. On the crisis of 1845 much valuable information is to be found in an article by A in the Historical Review; and the Spanish marriage intrigue is to be traced at length in the correspondence between Louis Philippe and Guizot, published by Taschereau in the Revue Rétrospective in 1848. Mr. Kinglake's views on Lord Palmerston's conduct as a member of the Aberdeen Cabinet may be compared with advantage with those set forth in the Quarterly Review of April 1877. During Lord Palmerston's first premiership and onwards, Lord Malmesbury and Mr. Morley continue to be instructive critics, and they are reinforced by Bishop Wilberforce, and Mr. Walter Bagehot in his sketch of The English Constitution. An excellent précis of English foreign policy from 1859 to 1865 is given by Lord Russell in the preface to the second part of his Selected Speeches and Despatches. On Lord Palmerston's later Italian policy abundant information may be found in Bianchi's Storia Documentata della Diplomazia Europea in Italia, in Mazade's Vie

Vie de

de Cavour, Cavour's Letters and Despatches, notably the private letters to Azeglio published by Bianchi under the title of La Politique du Comte Camille de Cavour. Not much original information, as far as Lord Palmerston is concerned, is to be found in Blanchard Jerrold's Life of Napoleon III., but his attitude towards German politics generally, and the Schleswig-Holstein question in particular, are abundantly illustrated in Count Beust's Memoirs, Count Vitzthum's St. Petersburg and London, which contains many personal reminiscences of Lord Palmerston, and Busch’s Our Chancellor (Eng. trans., 1884).
