New product

By Howard Overing Sturgis.

“Belchamber had a fruitful progeny in the fiction of Evelyn Waugh who used it as a model, particularly in Brideshead.” – Financial Times. Sturgis, with a skilful touch, describes life in the rich and self-indulgent aristocratic society. Originally printed in 1904 Belchamber traces the career of a young man, brought up in the midst of great luxury. Indecision of character is the weakness of “Sainty”. He allows himself to become the prey of a scheming mother, and, in spite of the tremendous advantage of his wealth and position, and a strong desire to benefit his fellow-men, he never accomplishes anything.
