Reviews

"... all those interested in the Duke of Wellington and the Victorian era must by grateful to Darrell Munsell for recovering and elaborating the story of creation that was in its way as important and reflective of its time as the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition. His book is based on fine research in a range of archival and published materials and is accompanied by profuse and effective illustrations." - Professor Neville Thompson

"The author deftly reveals the intense political imbroglio that the commission touched off, as well as the complex public debate. . . indicating the importance of the issue to Victorians. Mr. Punch weighed in with his irreverent swipes, and Munsell has selected a number of wonderful Punch cartoons to enliven his text..." - Anthony Brundage
