A cigarette-maker's romance. Marion CRAWFORD, rancis.

A cigarette-maker's romance.

London: Macmillan, 1890.

Two volumes, octavo, in original blue cloth.

First edition. Set in Germany, this fairy-tale concerns a young cigarette-maker, who claims to be the dispossessed Count Skariatine, and Vjera, a Polish girl, one of the few who believe his story. Given this preamble, it comes as little surprise to learn that Crawford was bitterly opposed to the didactic and the instructive tone of much writing, preferring romance - preferably in a Continental setting.
