About this Item: Paris - Librairie Nouvelle, 1856. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Two works, bound as one, by Alexandre Dumas fils, andL'Abbe Prevost. Bound in half leather with gilt lettering and spine decoration. Alexandre Dumas, fils, 1824 1895, was a French author and dramatist. He was the illegitimate son of Alexandre Dumas, pre, also a writer and playwright. During 1831 his father legally recognized him and ensured that the young Dumas received the best education possible at the Institution Goubaux and the Collge Bourbon. At that time, the law allowed the elder Dumas to take the child away from his mother. Her agony inspired Dumas fils to write about tragic female characters. In almost all of his writings, he emphasized the moral purpose of literature. It was as dramatist that Dumas was most successful. During 1874, he was admitted to the Acadmie franaise and in 1894 he was awarded the Lgion d'honneur. Antoine Franois Prevost, 1697 1763, usually known simply as the Abbe Prevost, was a French author and novelist. Prevost was educated at the Jesuit school of Hesdin, and in 1713 became a novice of the order in Paris, pursuing his studies at the same time at the college in La Fleche. At the end of 1716 he left the Jesuits to join the army, but soon tired of military life, and returned to Paris. He joined the learned community of the Benedictines of St Maur. He took his vows at Jumieges in 1721 after a year's novitiate, and in 1726 took priest's orders at St Germer de Flaix. He left the abbey without leave in 1728, and fled to England. He left England for the Netherlands, and it was during this time that Prevost began topublish his works. He was not reconciled with the Benedictines until 1734. In 1735 he was dispensed from residence in a monastery by becoming almoner to the Prince de Conti, and in 1754 obtained the priory of St Georges de Gesnes. He continued to produce novels and translations from the English, and, with the exception of a brief exile spent in Brussels and Frankfurt, he resided for the most part at Chantilly until his death. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including bumping and slight discolouration. Internally the pages have slight browning and the occasional spotting, becoming prominent to the pages of Manon Lescaut. Overall the condition is very good. Seller Inventory # 012760
