Item #20795 Jane Oglander. Mrs Belloc LOWNDES.

Jane Oglander. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911.

First Edition. An early and uncommon Lowndes title, not found in Hubin. Dustjacket copy describes the book as "a powerful and impressive story laid in England, but the central character is a fascinating Greek, beautiful and ambitious." An early New York Time's review of the book describes it thus: "The character of Athena is a masterpiece in its way. Mrs. Belloc-Lowndes has drawn a woman without conscience, without sympathies, absolutely self-centered, but possessing both passions and charm. The wife of an old man who thoroughly understands her, and whom she does not love, lets nothing stand in the way of gratifying her passing fancies for other men". Near Fine in the scarce printed dustjacket, Very Good but modestly edge chipped.

Price: $500.00
