A Memoir of Baron Bunsen:, Volume 2
Frances Waddington Bunsen
Cambridge University Press, Jun 2, 2011 - History - 638 pages
Frances Bunsen (1791-1876) published this account of the life of her husband, the Prussian diplomat and scholar Christian Karl Josias, Baron von Bunsen (1791-1860) in two volumes in 1868. Bunsen served as Prussian ambassador to Great Britain for thirteen years between 1841 and 1854, a critical period in European politics that culminated in the 1848 revolutions and the political turmoil that ensued. The memoir is based on Bunsen's family papers and private correspondence and was prepared at his request. It is illustrated with woodcuts and lithographs. Volume 2, opening in the year 1842, covers Bunsen's time as Prussian ambassador; his literary work, publications and biblical scholarship; his retirement in Heidelberg and Bonn; and his final illness and death. It is a key source for nineteenth-century British and Prussian diplomacy, and a fascinating account of an accomplished scholar and statesman.
