One of the youngest prime ministers in Britain’s history, William Pitt The Younger captured the fascination of historians for decades after the end of his term. In this 1891 biography, Lord Rosebery—himself a former prime minster—offers intriguing details of Pitt’s life, career, and apathetic nature; as well as keen insight into the British political system near the end of the eighteenth century.
