Arthur Severn, Illustration for Marie Corelli’s “The Devil’s Motor”



Date: 1910

The Devil’s Motor is best described by Teresa Ransom: ‘It purports to be an allegory; the text is declamatory and the illustrations nightmarish’. As in The Treasure of Heaven and Holy Orders, the motor car is depicted as a vehicle of evil and destruction. In 1911, the year of publication of The Devil’s Motor, Corelli was to buy a Daimler nevertheless. (Robyn Hallim)

  1. Hopefully you don't mind the comment, but I have a fine binding of this book for sale on eBay. It's beautiful in the flesh. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301420088131
