Inside the Book: The Guns of August

So gorgeous was the spectacle 00 the May morning of 1910 when nine kings rode in the funeral of Edward VII of Eng. land that the crowd. waiting in hushed and black-clad awe. could not keep back gasps of admiration. In scarlet and blue and green and purple, three by three the sovereigns rode
through the palace gates. with plumed helmets, gold braid. crimson sashes, and jeweled orders Bashing in the SUD. After them came five hem apparent, forty more imperial or royal highnesses, seven queens-four dowager and three regnant -and a scattering of special ambassadors from uncrowned
countries. Together they represented seventy nations in the greatest assemblage of royalty and rank. ever gathered in one place and, of its kind. the last. The muffled tongue of Big Ben tolled nine by the clock as the cortege left the palace. but on history’s clock it was sunset, and the SUD of the old world was setting i.o a dying blaze of splendor never to be
seen again.
