"Mr Bloom, alone, looked at the titles. Fair Tyrants by James Lovebirch." (U10.601)
I am still looking for 'Fair Tyrants'. This is 'Au Bon Vieux Temps' by James Lovebirch, published in Paris (1913). James Lovebirch was the pseudonym of a (probably French) early 19c. author. His best known novels are 'Les Cinq fessées de Suzette' (Paris, 1910), 'Peggy Briggs' (Paris, 1913), and 'L'Avatar de Lucette' (1913).
