Saraband for Dead Lovers. Helen SIMPSON.

Saraband for Dead Lovers. London: William Heinemann Ltd, (1935).

First Edition. A. K. Zinkeisen dustjacket art. "The Princess Sophia-Dorothea, forced into a loveless marriage with the dissolute Hanoverian who became King George I of England, was a lovely pawn of kings. She tried to follow the dictates of her own heart to her swift undoing. This vivid, imaginative romance based on her history has pathos and drama and the color and atmosphere of a corrupt and gilded age." Basis for the 1948 Basil Dearden directed film featuring Stewart Granger, Joan Greenwood, and Flora Robson.
