The legend of St Piano by Georges Montbard

This time round something a bit more unusual. I can’t remember how I came by this but suspect it was one of those old damp tomes from my Mother and Father-in-Law that was about to be thrown away and I wanted to rescue a few illustrations. So here they are for you.

I’m sorry but I don’t know where this was published (was it Home Notes?) but Montbard has books in print still despite writing in the turn of the 1800s-1900s in such magazines as The Windsor Magazine and Pearson’s Magazine (US). Apparently Georges Montbard was a pen name for author Charles Auguste Loyes.

You can read the whole of Among the Moors: Sketches of Oriental Life by Georges Montbard – Published 1894 by Sampson Low, Marston & Company. It comes in many e-formats and contains several illustrations.

But here is the Legend of St Piano….
