ALEXANDER I MA S'Sort I IAStories IN A SINGLE BEAUTIFUL VOLUME THE roar and turmoil of battle thunders and crashes on these most exciting pages in all literature. No other man knew quite so well how to stir the blood of his readers. No other man has so deftly captured the spirit of the duel-the duel for honor, for freedom, for a lady's love. Alexander Dumas took history for his background and upon that mighty canvas painted the loves and hates, the emotions and ad ventures of the most colorful group of heroes and heroines ever conceived in the mind of a single man. The scope of his genius is tremendous. Pic ked armies charge at his command, hack ing each other to pieces in blind fury. Lone gentlemen of fortune ride in tattered splendor through almost certain death, supported only by the quickness and keen ness of their slender blades. Mobs armed with axes and scythes fight their way to glori ous liberty.
