Golden Lads is a biography of Sir Francis Bacon and his friends, written by Daphne du Maurier and published by Doubleday & Company in 1975. Here, the world-famous novelist turns her talents to the re-creation of the Elizabethan world in a biography of three men whose lives interacted and, in varying degrees, shaped the events of their tumultuous times: Anthony Bacon, Francis Bacon, and the Earl of Essex. Anthony Bacon, an almost forgotten figure, and his brother, Francis, were members of a highly placed family-their father being the Lord Keeper of the Seal and their uncle, Elizabeth Is all-powerful Lord Treasurer. Among his friends, Anthony Bacon numbered kings, princes, poets, and (dangerous in England at that time) Catholics. In an age of outgoing pomp and ceremony, his was a life lived in secret. First Edition. Over 40 illustrations, 10 in colour. Ex- Library - sticker is affixed to front pastedown. Condition: Fair with some mild foxing. Dust jacket: Good with general shelf wear. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
