8vo. 406, [2] pp. Full beige cloth, green leather gilt-stamped spine label. Fine copy. Records the history of the first king of Spain, elected in Parliament, Amadeo de Saboya (1845-1890), from the House of Savoy. Written by the Spanish historian and politician Don Antonio Pirala. "After the Spanish revolution deposed Isabella II, the new Cortes decided to reinstate the monarchy under a new dynasty. The Duke of Aosta was elected King as Amadeus (Amadeo) on 16 November 1870. He swore to uphold the constitution in Madrid on 2 January 1871. The election of the new King coincided with the assassination of General Marqués de los Castillejos, his main backer. After that, Amadeo had to deal with difficult situations, with unstable Spanish politics, republican conspiracies, Carlist uprisings, separatism in Cuba, same-party disputes, fugitive governments and assassination attempts." His reign was from Nov. 1870 to Feb. 1873.
