About the eBook

This carefully crafted ebook: "THE MEMOIRS OF A PHYSICIAN - Complete Marie Antoinette Series (Volumes 1-5)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Memoirs of a Physician Series is placed in the time of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. The series presents an idealized portrait of France during the reign of Queen Marie Antoinette, but it also shows the decadence of the nobility of the time, with its ending seeming to suggest the "beginning of the end" of the nobility. Novels are inspired by the actual historical characters, such as Count Cagliostro and Ange Pitou, and the major events in the history of France, storming the Bastille, French Revolution and The Reign of Terror. Alexandre Dumas, père (1802-1870) was a French writer whose works have been translated into nearly 100 languages and he is one of the most widely read French authors. His most famous works are The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Table of Contents: Joseph Balsamo: The Magician The Mesmerist's Victim: Andrea de Taverney The Queen's Necklace Taking the Bastile: Ange Pitou The Countess de Charny: The Execution of King Louis XVI

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870), also known as Alexandre Dumas père ('father' to distinguish him from his son), was a giant in the French literary world. He was born in Villers-Cotterêts, France, the son of a general in Napoleon's army. Dumas made his mark with his numerous plays, historical novels, and adventure stories that blended historical accuracy with an undeniable gift for storytelling. His writing career reached its pinnacle with the publication of the d'Artagnan Romances, which included 'The Three Musketeers' and its sequels, and the Marie Antoinette Series, where 'THE MEMOIRS OF A PHYSICIAN'—a colossal narrative blending historical fact and romanticized fiction—stands as a compelling testament to his fascination with the French Revolution and its figures. Dumas' literary style mixes comprehensive research, vivid character development, and high drama, creating works that have not only entertained but also informed readers for over a century. Despite living in the 19th century, Dumas remains a globally celebrated figure; his works have been translated into many languages, and they have continued to be adapted for stage, film, and television, attesting to their enduring legacy and the captivating power of his storytelling.
