Aurum 8vo hardcover 329pp very good. / Very good d/w. In this entertaining book Friedrich succeeds in evoking the period in all its aspects. The high drama of its politics, the underlying squalar of its back streets, and above all the personalities of the players and the network of influences, friendships, feuds, and rivalries that linked them together.
