This is an auction for UNDER TWO FLAGS by Ouida.

From Wikipedia:

"Under Two Flags (1867) was a best-selling novel of the late 1860s by Ouida, the pseudonym of the English novelist Maria Louise Ramé (1839-1908). Perhaps "her best" novel... Under Two Flags, one of her most well-known novels, described the British in Algeria. It expressed sympathy for the French colonists (called pieds noirs)—with whom Ouida deeply identified—and, to some extent, the Arabs. This book was adapted as dramatic plays, and was adapted four times as a film... The novel is about The Hon. Bertie Cecil. In financial distress because of his own profligacy and the loss of an important horse-race on which he has bet extensively, and falsely accused of forgery, but unable to defend himself against the charge without injuring the "honour" of a lady and also exposing his younger brother (the real culprit), Cecil fakes his own death and exiles himself to Algeria where he joins the Chasseurs d'Afrique, a regiment comprising soldiers from various countries, rather like the French Foreign Legion. After Cecil's great childhood friend and the friend's beautiful sister show up in Africa, and after a series of melodramatic self-sacrifices by Cecil and by the young girl Cigarette, the main conflicts are resolved and the surviving characters return to England to fortune, title, and love..."
