LOL: His Hour
His Hour is #2 in Barbara Cartland's Library of Love and was published in March 1977. This is the condensed story by Elinor Glyn about Tamara, an English widow, and a Russian Prince, who she meets in Egypt and later in Russia. This novel was a sensation when published in the 1910's!
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple at a ball, where the heroine holds a pistol! The hero is handsome and sardonic in a red uniform and our heroine looks like a princess with her tiara and furs. It's too bad that the title was placed over the illustration, but we see some of Marshall's great artwork! This is a very pretty illustration that I hope you enjoy!
