Love in Excess; or, The Fatal Enquiry by Eliza Haywood

Love in Excess (1719–1720) is Eliza Haywood's best known novel. It details the amorous escapades of Count D'Elmont, a rake who becomes reformed over the course of the novel. Love in Excess was a huge bestseller in its time, going through multiple reissues in the four years following its initial publication. It was once compared in terms of book sales with Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe. This information was revealed to be incorrect, the believed success of this novel is much more marginal, selling only about 6000 copies over 23 years.
