FINE. This novel is based on a true, and still not entirely understood, episode in French and American history. Set during the French Revolution, it is the story of a group of loyal aristocrats who plot to free Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, and the Dauphin, their son, from imprisonment by the revolutionary forces in Paris, and to bring them safely to Pennsylvania, where they had purchased a large parcel of land, fittingly named Asylum, which can still be visited today.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
