This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's work "La Constantin". First published as part of his eight-volume series "Celebrated Crimes" (1839-40), it recounts the semi-fictionalised story of Marie Leroux and her accomplice Claude. A history of the retribution which overtook these dastardly criminals, this tale of low morals and deep corruption in seventeenth century France will appeal to lovers of true crime literature, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Dumas's fantastic work. 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.
