About this Item

MAXWELL, Sir Herbert. The Art of Love or New Lessons in Old Lore. Edinburgh: D.Douglas, 1889. Three volumes. Publisher's navy blue cloth, with elaborately gilt "hinge" devices extending across spine and boards. Some minor rubbing and faint flecking to cloth, small shelf-number label in upper corner of pastedowns, otherwise a very good, bright set. WOLFF 4688. First edition. Inscribed and signed by the author with an extended quotation on a prelim of each volume. A relatively early novel by Maxwell, published in the same year as HIS PASSAGES IN THE LIFE OF SIR LUCIAN ELPHIN OF CASTLE WEARY (two volumes). Maxwell (1845-1837) combined a life of politics with an active career as miscellaneous writer, local historian and, in later years, as a popular writer on sports and fishing. His early novels are not terribly common; OCLC locates six locations. Bookseller Inventory # 48463
