Title: Romance of a Harem
Description: New York: PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR THE HOGARTH PRESS 0. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 16.5x24.5cm. WOODCUTS. "The authoress's father (when the writer was a small child) was sent by the French Government on a mission to the Sultan, who received him and his family on terms of greatest intimacy, and who had a profound respect for the distinguished French gentleman. It was with her father and mother that the authoress learnt the Turkish language, and visited during her youth, before marriage, all the leading Turkish families, and thus gained what is so rare among Europeans, an intimate knowledge of the little-known private life of great harems. This true story, as given to the public, was known and approved of by the children of Prince Halim, who plays so large a part in the romance." Significant wear to fore edge corners, much faded spine with gilt title; 25mm slight chipping on front at top where paper covering meets cloth; rough cut page block, content clean and straight; features woodcut illustrations; paper covering inside rear cover split at head of spine 3cm..
