Condition: Very Good Condition


People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Margot Asquith was perhaps the most daring and unconventional Prime Minister's wife in British history. Known for her wit, style and habit of speaking her mind, she transformed 10 Downing Street into a glittering social and intellectual salon.
