The second deals with the plight of a young woman who has fallen prey to the wiles of an evil seducer and subsequently adopts a life of prostitution.

Three friends, perfect companions for each other, try to make their way as painters in the Bohemian climate of the left bank of the Seine, but then Little Billee falls in love.

It is not Svengali, however, who is responsible for Trilby's downfall.

    The next volume in the series of exciting stories about A. J. Raffles, first class slow bowler and gentleman thief. The author must have been delighted when his fictional character was such a success. Raffles would have said 'timing is everything' and the advice should have been delivered to his creator. Hornung made a grave error in finishing the master burglar's life and career so soon, realised his mistake and brought him back to the printed page.

    Over 100 years since it was first published Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow addresses subjects which are still relevant today - perhaps more so! Being hard up, being in the blues and being in love are just some aspects of the human condition on which Jerome K. Jerome reflects in his unique whimsical fashion. These insights are not given for the benefit of our education however, for as he says in his introduction, "This book would not elevate a cow.'
