Synopsis of Disraeli, Derby and the Conservative Party: Journals and Memoirs of Edward Henry, Lord Stanley 1849-1869:

Stanley enjoyed the confidence of his father, Lord Derby, thrice Prime Minister (1852, 1858-59, 1866-68) and of Disraeli, whose political apprentice he became in about 1850. His journal reflects the inner history of the Conservative party in the mid-Victorian period, when other major Conservative sources were scanty. Stanley maintained his journal during 1866-68, when he was Foreign Secretary during three major European crisis. His daily notes on the European scene constitute virtually the only published diary kept by a British Foreign Secretary.
