About this Item

Hardback. Slight foxing to end inside cover. Shelf wear to edges of D/J. Slight reading marks to D/J. This book tells the dramatic story of Marie Lafarge who was found guilty in the 1840s of the murder of her husband by poisoning, and of the theft of a diamond necklace from her closest friend. Young and charming , Marie Lafarge was connected with some of the greatest families of France and, illegitimately, with the King, Louis-Philippe. An element of doubt has always been attached to the case which in all the hundred years that have passed has never ceased to be discussed. The author's long and detailed study of the case and of the accused, based on the official report of the trial and on contemporary records, makes this book the definitive account of one of the most famous of all causes celebres. 253 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
