This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's historical work, "The Marquise de Brinvilliers". It was first published as part of his "Celebrated Crimes" series, and tells the fascinating story of the trial and execution and Madame de Brinvilliers, one of the most famous murderers in French history. Accused of three murders, the French aristocrat Marie-Madeleine-Marguerite d'Aubray (1630-1676) was convicted based on her confession-which was obtained through torture-and a series of letters written by her deceased lover
