Journal Entry 1 by jordsams from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada on Tuesday, October 01, 2002
This very old copy was picked up on a whim in a local second-hand/antique store. First published in 1926, it bears the pencilled name of Evelyn Davies, her street address (but no city), and the year, 1932. It's in terrible, sad shape, so I have to imagine it passed through many hands before it wound up in the shop.

Set in 18thC Paris and Avon, it's a mysterious story of cruel revenge and a highly unlikely romance. The Count is wonderfully wicked and witty and our heroine is a lively, precocious brat who gives him more than a run for his money. I'd quite forgotten how long and varied is the practice of human chattels, and how recent were times and morals very similar to those in old fairy tales.
