Book:Mrs Keppel, mistress to the king:2016 Book
Author: Quinn, Tom
Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Biteback Publishing
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Mistress to the King, the Duchess of Cornwall's great-grandmother Alice Keppel was perhaps the greatest courtesan in history. She was extraordinary for a number of reasons, not least that she was for many years the lover of Edward VII, though managed to avoid the stigma of being a royal mistress. In fact, Edward was so devoted to her that he insisted she be received wherever he went. This remarkable book shows Mrs Keppel to have been one of the most compelling characters of the Edwardian era: charming, voracious, selfish, manipulative and strikingly modern.

Book:The reluctant billionaire, the tragic life of Gerald Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster:2018 Book
Author: Quinn, Tom
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Biteback Publishing
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: When Gerald Grosvenor, sixth Duke of Westminster, died in August 2016 he was one of the world's richest men, his fortune estimated at just under 10 billion. Yet he hated his wealth and spent long periods suffering from severe depression, much of it brought on by a feeling that his whole life had been a failure and that his money had destroyed any chance of happiness. At the same time, he could be ruthless in running the business while often feeling he was only a mascot. Tom Quinn interviewed the sixth Duke on a number of occasions as well as people who knew the duke socially or had at various times worked with or for him. This book looks at the long and often eccentric history of the Grosvenor family and its wealth and the complex means by which that wealth has been shielded from the taxman, as well as the bizarre life of a man who was that strangest of things: The Reluctant Billionaire.

Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Portico
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Extraordinary but true stories from over two hundred years of angling history. 'Fishing's Strangest Tales' gathers together choice stories and bizarre fishing tales from all over the world. Consider the Oxford scientist who in 1910 discovered the marvellous life-giving properties of brandy to fish who had otherwise gasped their last. Or how about the nine-year-old boy fishing for trout who caught a large mussel - containing no less than forty pearls - and managed to earn more in one day than his father, a farm worker, had earned in the last five years?
