Karl-Ludwig Sand - 1819


This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas’s work “Karl-Ludwig Sand”. It was first published as part of his eight-volume series “Celebrated Crimes” (1839–40), and recounts the story of a German nationalist who was involved in a famous assassination still remembered in Germany to this day. Karl Ludwig Sand (1795-1820) was a German student who belonged to a liberal student association. After being found guilty of the murder of the conservative dramatist August von Kotzebu, he was executed in 1820, and became considered as a martyr by a large number of German nationalists. As with Dumas’s other stories in “Celebrated Crimes”, it constitutes a thrilling and highly entertaining retelling of the events, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Dumas’s seminal work. Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his decidedly extravagant lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over 200 motion pictures. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this antiquarian book in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
