1913. Part Fifteen of Eighteen Volumes. Contains Volume I of this
work. Gilbert, Canadian-born novelist and politician, his literary
reputation lies primarily on his earlier descriptive, dramatic and
historic Canadian stories. He moved to England in 1889 and later
served in Parliament. Parker explains that in this edition of his
work, each volume will have a special introduction setting forth,
as far as possible, the relation of each work to the author, to its
companion works, and to the scheme of his literary life. The
Weavers is based on the author's travels to Egypt and is set in the
last days of Ismail Pasha. The novel represents a wider outlook of
life, closer understanding of the problems which perplex society,
and a clearer view of the verities than any previous book written
by the author. See other titles by this author available from
