This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's historical work, "The Countess de Saint-Geran". It was first published as part of his eight-volume series "Celebrated Crimes" (1839-40), which contained a collection of semi-fictionalised historical accounts that dealt with some of most shocking and note-worthy criminal cases in European history. This thrilling and masterfully-retold tale is highly recommended for fans of Dumas's work, and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over 200 motion pictures. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this antiquarian book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
