Barbara Cartland’s Book of Love and Lovers by Barbara Cartland hits the £1 shelf in my shop.

Michael Joseph, 1978, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: Barbara Cartland, the worlds most prolific and best-loved romantic novelist, presents her personal choice of over four hundred pictures, by artists whose inspiration has also been hers all her life: the universal and many-faceted subject of love. An intriguing variety of paintings and drawings ranging from a delightful Pompeian fresco to cartoons of the 1920s illustrates love in all its aspects: triumphant, despairing, secret, bold, wicked, inspirational, at its awakening and at its dying.

The book also contains some fascinating insights into the lives of the worlds greatest lovers many of whom have been the subjects of Harbara Cartlands historical works from the beautiful and devoted Diane de Poitiers, to the extraordinary Jane Digby and the rakish Edward VII.

The pictures are accompanied by Miss Cartlands inimitable blend of original interpretation, wit, social comment and personal reminiscences. For all of us, she writes, love is the greatest and the most irresistible force in the world, and our hope of heaven.
