Description

Published in 1883, this two-volume work sheds light on an author who was outsold only by Dickens in his lifetime.

Résumé
One of the most popular writers of his age, outsold only by Dickens, Edward George Bulwer Lytton (1803-73), first Baron Lytton, notably coined the phrases 'the great unwashed' and 'the pen is mightier than the sword'. This two-volume collection, posthumously published in 1883, illuminates a prolific literary life.
