A classic of belle époque literature, and the nicest jacketed copy we've seen. Illustrated throughout with ten black and white plates by Herman Post, who also designed the dustjacket. Memorably filmed twice; the 1950 film directed by Pierre Billon, and the 2009 Stephen Frears film starring Michell Pfeiffer and Rupert Friend
