These memoirs separated into 3 parts spanning 8 volumes; 3 volumes covering 1817-1837 (First Part), 3 volumes covering 1837-1852 (Second Part), and 2 covering 1852-1860 (Third Part). These were all published between 1874-1887.

Written in diary format, Greville accounts Great Britain and events occurring during the time of the reign of 3 different rulers.

This copy is bound in blue velvet cloth with a gold stamp on the center of the front cover. This stamp contains a goose with a crown around its neck, wings flapped, sitting atop a larger crown. A banner sits below the goose and crown stating "VIX EA NOSTRA VOCO".

Above the gold stamp is an imprint of a bookplate/title insignia that was present but has been removed. There is damage to the blue velvet because of the removal.

There is evident wear and tear, potentially water or mold damage, to the surrounding areas of the cover which can be seen on the inner cover.

Inside the front cover, Edith Wharton's bookplate from Sainte-Claire-du-Chateau Hyeresis present, decorated around the edges.

On the initial title page, there is a signature above the title stating: "Colonel Hill James 4 Lowndes Street June 1898".
