Victoria, Queen of England Signed Presentation Copy of The Life of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort by Theodore Martin. London: Smith Elder & Co. 1875-1880. Five volumes. Important association set inscribed on the front endpage: "To Principal Tulloch from Victoria R / Balmoral / June 6. 1875." John Tulloch (1823-1886) was ordained in 1845 into the church of Scotland, where he served as parish minister until 1854. He then served as principal and professor of theology at St. Mary's College, St. Andrew's University until 1859, when he was appointed a chaplain to Queen Victoria.

    Signature and inscription are in near fine condition. All five volumes had cracked hinges, and some wear to original cloth boards. Volume one shows heavy wear to spine, especially along joints.
