Cover Illustration: Her Majesty Queen Victoria and His Royal Highness the Prince Consort. Portraits by Charles Edouard Boutibonne 1856. The Queen is in a park followed by mounted officers and is wearing the badges of a Field Marshal on a uniform which is an adaptation on the theme of a senior general officer's full dress. The Prince Consort is also wearing the badges of a Field Marshal and is on a road with cavalry beyond. Both portraits were painted with the Queen's permission for Boutibonne's private collection only. Kind permission of Sotheby's
