"Second Edition ... 1933" stated on copyright page; Methuen & Co. LTD. publishers, London; very good condition with unmarked pages; b/w photos; minimal ageing of pages; dust jacket has some tears.
The author describes the lives of the three famous King Ludwigs of Bavaria. The Classic Ludwig; enchanted by Greek art, loved by the people. The Swan King, also known as the mad king; whose madness was tolerated until his building projects nearly bankrupted the country. And the Lesser Ludwig; whose only fault was being without excentricity, though the events he lived through make his portion far from boring.
