The maximum term shall not be less than the maximum term of imprisonment prescribed by law as a penalty for such offense; provided, however, that, when any person so sentenced shall have twice before been convicted, sentenced, and imprisoned in a state prison or penitentiary, the court shall sentence said person to a maximum of thirty years; and provided, further, that, in case a person is sentenced to the state prison for two or more separate offenses, where the term of imprisonment for a second or further term is ordered to begin at the expiration of the first and each succeeding term of sentence named in the warrant of commitment, the court imposing said sentences shall name the maximum term of imprisonment for each succeeding term, and the several maximum terms shall, for the purposes of this section and of sections 1536, 1537, 1538, 1539, 1540, and 1541 be construed as one continuous term of imprisonment.
