The Scarlet Pimpernel, Hardback

The Scarlet Pimpernel Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library Children's Classics series



The exotically named Baroness Orczy was the daughter of a Hungarian aristocrat who came to London at the age of fifteen.

First published in 1905, her historical novel The Scarlet Pimpernel became almost as famous as the French Revolution itself.

It tells of the escapades of Sir Percy Blakeney, whose mission is to help the innocent victims of the Reign of Terror escape the guillotine.

Assuming ever more daring and ingenious disguises he suceeds in both outwitting his opponents and in keeping his activities a secret from his English friends.

Everyman's Library Children's Classics publishes the novel in a new and up-to-date edition to tie in with the BBC production to be screened this Christmas.
