Vol. III. THE SILENCE OF LOVE, By Edmond Holmes

Vol. IV. The CUPID AND PSYCHE of Apuleius in English

Other Volumes in Preparation The title of The Lover's Library is sufficiently descriptive to make explanation of the purpose of the Series almost unnecessary.

It is sought to include in a group of compact little volumes, all that the great British poets have written about Love; and from time to time a prose volume, or a volume of modern verse which may be considered of sufficient importance, will be added to the Library.

The delicate decorations, by Mr. Philip Connard, on pages, end papers, and covers, make the little books dainty enough for small presents, and it is hoped that those who do not receive them as presents from others will seize the opportunity of making presents to themselves.
