Online Auction Description
By Rafael Sabatini
Considered by many to be Sabatini's crowning achievement, bringing the color and the terror of the French Revolution to life before the reader's eyes!
Andre-Louis Moreau, (or Scaramouche, as he later becomes known), is a fascinatingly complex protagonist. Courageous, intelligent, quick-witted and intensely moral, Moreau is a character whose personal quest for revenge against the villainous Marquis de La Tour d'Azyr is a masterfully-woven story of swashbuckling action, romance and social conflict during the turbulent years of the French Revolution.
Well-born lawyer. Fugitive. Dramatic actor. Expert swordsman. Impassioned, mob-inciting orator. Revolutionary politician. Sabatini sets Moreau upon an intriguing path of fate, development and discovery, a fictionalized yet compelling account of a single man's ultimate test of human character as the world around him spirals into madness.
A hardcover, no dust jacket, from what is apparently a uniforn set of Sabatini published by P F Collier. No date other than the 1936 copyriight. Some dust and wear to the boards. normal shelf-smushing. PAges are off-white, made of heavy paper.
