Books Description:

This antiquarian volume contains Alexandre Dumas's 1893 historical novel, "The Conspirators - Or, The Chevalier D'harmental". A thrilling adventure packed with romance, intrigue, misfortune, and love, it tells the story of collusion between the church and royal families in a fierce battle for power. A fantastic page-turner characteristic of Dumas's masterful story-telling abilities, "The Conspirators" constitutes a must-read for a fan of historical fiction. 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 decidedly 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 now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this antiquarian book in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Books Description:

Christopher Isherwood was only twenty-one when he began his first novel, All the Conspirators, in 1926; it was published in England two years later. In his introduction to the first American edition (published by New Directions in 1958), the author explained: "[All the Conspirators] records a minor engagement in what Shelley calls 'the great war between the old and young.'" In many ways this novel (like the classic Berlin Stories) is a "period piece" growing out of a particular historical situation--clashes between parents and children are still just as deadly but they are no longer invariably polite and restrained, and there are no longer (as Cyril Connolly once put it) "atrocities witnessed at tea in the drawing-room." But Isherwood's singular perceptions of the older generation holding on and the younger trying to wrench free are as valid today as they were half a century ago.

Books Description:

It is May 1660 and the fate of nations is at stake. Mazarin plots, Louis XIV is in love, and Raoul de Bragelonne, son of Athos, is intent on serving France and winning the heart of Louise de la Valliere. D'Artagnan, meanwhile, is perplexed by a mysterious stranger, and soon he learns that his old comrades already have great projects in hand. Athos seeks the restoration of Charles II, while Aramis, with Porthos in tow, has a secret plan involving a masked prisoner and the fortification of the island of Belle-Ile. D'Artagnan finds a thread leading him to the French court, the banks of the Tyne, the beaches of Holland, and the dunes of Brittany. The Vicomte de Bragelonne opens an epic adventure which continues with Louise de la Valliere and reaches its climax in The Man in the Iron Mask. This new edition of the classic translation is fully annotated, and an introduction sets Dumas's saga in its historical and cultural context.

Books Description:

This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas’s historical chronicle, “Nisida - 1825”. One of the most notorious prisons in Italy, the Nisida was built on a small island just off the coast of Naples, and had a reputation for being a wretched place synonymous with cruelty and unbearable conditions. This semi-fictionalised but authentic portrayal of Nisida is highly recommended for those with an interest in the infamous prison, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of Dumas's works. 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 decidedly extravagant lifestyle.

Books Description:

The most exotic of George Eliot’s works, Romola recounts the story of the famous religious leader Savonarola in Florence at the time of Machiavelli and the Medicis. Of all her novels, this was the author’s favourite. No other Eliot novel was illustrated in its first edition. Romola, however, was sought by George Smith for serialization in the prestigious illustrated Cornhill Magazine. Smith commissioned illustrations for the novel from the rising young artist Frederick Leighton, who had studied in Florence in the 1840s and had frequently painted Florentine Renaissance subjects. Romola was serialised with the Leighton illustrations in the magazine from July 1862 to August 1863. It was first published in book form in 1863; the first edition was published by Smith, Elder in three volumes, and a one-volume edition in two-column format with all but one of the Leighton illustrations was published later that year by Harper & Brothers in the United States. This facsimile reprint is of the one-volume 1863 Harper & Brothers edition, and includes 8 pages of original advertisements from the back of the book. This is one of a series from Broadview Press of facsimile reprint editions—editions that provide readers with a direct sense of these works as the Victorians themselves experienced them.

Books Description:

In this seventh volume of his Celebrated Crimes, Dumas tells the three tales: of the brutal excesses of Ali Pacha; the tale of the Countess of Saint Geran;and of Murat, whose courage became a legend in the days of the French revolution. Few men have understood themselves better or been on better terms with the orbit of their existence than Ali Pacha, and as the personality of an individual is all the more striking, in proportion as it reflects the manners and ideas of the time and country in which he has lived, so the figure of Ali Pacha stands out, if not one of the most brilliant, at least one of the most singular in contemporary history.

Books Description:

A man out to save his own skin meets a woman who may be the end of him in a rollicking historical romantic mystery that “will utterly delight the reader” (Abilene Reporter-News). As one of Queen Elizabeth I’s most trusted spies, the daring Crispin Foscari never leaves anything to chance. So, he’s surprised when he’s told he has two weeks to clear his name of treason, or his neck will meet the executioner’s noose. Sophie Champion is a hero to women of London, dedicating her seemingly endless resources to free them from their bondage to men. But when her investigation into the death of her godfather places her in danger, she herself is liberated from danger by Crispin—also known as the notorious “Earl of Scandal.” Not that she would ever admit she needed his help. Even as his mind warns him to stay away from the seductive siren, Crispin offers a proposal. By day, they will pit their equally sharp wits against a calculating enemy, and by night they will fight their searing mutual attraction. But as they grow closer to identifying the killer, they grow closer to one another. Unfortunately, that is only going to make it easier for their foe to finish them both off. With peril, passion, and swashbuckling to spare, this fast-paced romantic adventure from “a writer to watch” is sure to keep you riveted until the thrilling climax (Publishers Weekly).
