On March 29, 1928, Hogg became Lord Chancellor in Stanley Baldwin’s government, succeeding to the Viscount Cave, and in April was created Baron Hailsham, of Hailsham in the County of Sussex. His elevation to the peerage barred him from the premiership, and would later interfere with the political ambitions of his elder son, Quintin Hogg, who was said to have stood in Christ Church’s Peckwater Quad to cry in frustration. He held the Great Seal until the government’s defeat in 1929. In that year’s Birthday Honours he was created Viscount Hailsham, of Hailsham in the County of Sussex. Between 1930 and 1931 Hailsham was the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Lords. During that period, he was spoken of as Baldwin’s potential successor. He was passed over for the Lord Chancellorship in the National Government of August–October 1931, and refused to join it as Lord Privy Seal. After the October 1931 elections he joined the second National Government as Secretary of State for War and Leader of the House of Lords. In 1935, Hailsham returned to the Lord Chancellorship, first under Baldwin, then under Neville Chamberlain. During his second term, he was the last Lord High Steward to preside over the trial of a peer (the 26th Baron de Clifford) in the House of Lords. Fine in the original dust jackets which are in very good to near fine condition. A very nice association.
