The Works of Alexandre Dumas – The Page Of The Duke Of Savoy

This is the 1891 novel, “The page of the Duke of Savoy” – one of the fantastic works of Alexandre Dumas.

It is the fictionalised tale of a woman who is forced to impersonate a man – and a page no less – in order to remain by the side of her beloved Duke. A tense marriage of mystery and romance, this masterful story will appeal to lovers of historical fiction, and constitutes a must-read for anyone who has read and enjoyed Dumas’s 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 extravagant lifestyle. The works of Alexandre Dumas have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.

Many vintage texts such as ‘The Page of the Duke of Savoy – Works of Alexandre Dumas’ are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
