Le Drame de quatre-vingt-treize (93): Scènes de la vie révolutionnaire

non-fiction, pub:1851-1852, action:1789-1793

A continuation of Louis XVI et la Révolution.

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     In reality a continuation of "Louis XVI. et la Révolution," being a lengthy narrative of the fateful years from 1789 to 1793.
     As with the preceding works of this series, we may consider that here we have Dumas working without a collaborator.
     Original edition : Paris, Souverain, 7 vols., 8vo., 1851-52.
     Refer also to "L'Histoire de Deux Siècles," 1852. (See page 280.)
     Although no bibliographer seems to have referred to an illustrated edition, there was possibly one issued by Dufour et Mulat about 1852, since "L'Histoire de Deux Siècles" contains the entire text of this work in its third and fourth volumes, those devoted to "Louis XVI.," with plates similar to those in the preceding volumes.
     This work now forms three volumes in the standard Calmann-Lévy edition.
     In Le Vasseur's "Alexandre Dumas Illustré" it forms part of Vol. XIII.
