The Countess de Saint Geran by Alexandre Dumas

This book contains Alexandre Dumas’s historical work, “The Countess de Saint Geran”.

“The Countess de Saint Geran” was first published as part of his eight-volume series ‘Celebrated Crimes’ (1839-1840), which contained a collection of semi-fictionalised historical accounts that dealt with some of the most shocking and noteworthy 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. The works of Alexandre Dumas have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.
