Aventures de Lyderic

roman/novel, pub:1842

The story of Siegfried.

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     One of those half-legendary, half-fictitious "chroniques" which served Dumas as excellent apprentice work for his later and more finished historical romances.
     Original edition: Paris, Dumont, 1 vol., 8vo., pp. 359. The title story occupies pp. 1 to 159; then follows "Chronique du Roi Pépin," pp. 161 to 224; and finally "Chronique de Charlemagne," pp. 225 to 359.
     Later it was used to fill the third volume of "L'Horoscope," Brussels, 1858,
     With "Pauline" and "Jacques I. et Jacques II." it fills a volume in the Calmann-Lévy edition with illustrations. (First issued by Marescq et Cie, in 1853.)
     In the same firm's standard edition it is appended to "La Bouillie de la Comtesse Berthe." (Refer to 1845.)
     In Le Vasseur's "Alexandre Dumas Illustré" it is included in Vol. XVII.
