ANSTEY, F. [Pseudonym of Thomas Anstey Guthrie]. LOVE AMONG THE LIONS: A Matrimonial Experience. London: J.M. Dent & Co., n.d. . First Edition. A NEAR FINE copy (a few minor blemishes to the cloth) in publisher's original maroon cloth, gilt. Anstey, a wonderful satirical author with a whimsical mind, was the author of the classic Victorian fantasy novel VICE VERSA in which a father and son exchange bodies with hilarious results (the plot of about a dozen Hollywood movies). In LOVE AMONG THE LIONS, a young couple plans to get married at the London Zoo, in the lion cage. "Canterbury Couple to Wed in Cage full of Carnivores" is the title of one of the clever illustrations which first appeared in Idler Magazine to great acclaim. An excellent first edition of a delightful book. Sadleir 47. NCBEL III, 1034. Bookseller Inventory # 001595
