About this Item

Paperback. 340 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.Volume one of the collected short novels of Mrs. Aubin Mrs. Penelope Aubin, born in London around 1679, is something of a woman of mystery and in that lays much of her allure as a person and as an author. Certainly, Penelope Aubin was an author of note at a time when female authors were uncommon and in her day her work was regarded as highly as that of Haywood and Daniel Defoe, though of course her fame has not endured so well as that of the latter. Mrs. Aubin was well known for the writing of decidedly racy fiction-in effect bodice-rippers at a time when there were actually bodices to rip! In any event her seven short novels which are enacted on a global stage are full of adventure, lust, seduction, duelling, violence, young love-and sometimes all of these elements in the same tale. Aubin wrote prodigiously and was a poet as well as a translator of French prose . The complete collection of Mrs. Aubins classic novels of 17th century life and love have been gathered together in this special Leonaur two volume set for modern readers to own and enjoy. In volume one readers will find The Life of Madam de Beaumontt, The Strange Adventures of the Count de Vinevil and His Family, The Life and Amorous Adventures of Lucinda and The Noble Slaves; or, The Lives and Adventures of Two Lords and Two Ladies. Originally presented in the style of the day, these texts have been carefully revised by Leonaurs editors to remove archaic ligatured characters, thereby making them more accessible to contemporary readers.

About this title

Synopsis:

Volume one of the collected short novels of Mrs. Aubin

Mrs. Penelope Aubin, born in London around 1679, is something of a woman of mystery and in that lays much of her allure as a person and as an author. Certainly, Penelope Aubin was an author of note at a time when female authors were uncommon and in her day her work was regarded as highly as that of Haywood and Daniel Defoe, though of course her fame has not endured so well as that of the latter. Mrs. Aubin was well known for the writing of decidedly 'racy' fiction-in effect 'bodice-rippers' at a time when there were actually bodices to rip! In any event her seven short novels which are enacted on a global stage are full of adventure, lust, seduction, duelling, violence, young love-and sometimes all of these elements in the same tale. Aubin wrote prodigiously and was a poet as well as a translator of French prose . The complete collection of Mrs. Aubin's classic novels of 17th century life and love have been gathered together in this special Leonaur two volume set for modern readers to own and enjoy.
In volume one readers will find The Life of Madam de Beaumontt, The Strange Adventures of the Count de Vinevil and His Family, The Life and Amorous Adventures of Lucinda and The Noble Slaves; or, The Lives and Adventures of Two Lords and Two Ladies.
