Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
Marguerite Cret's novella has an engaging, rapidly moving plot line, filled with adventure and a minor dose of romance. The story is enhanced by the inclusion of a series of pencil and watercolor sketches, some of which were never quite completed. Each chapter includes at least one major, full page water color. Its authorship is established tentatively on the basis of an inscription on page 2, "affectueusement á Noël Cortês, Marguerite Cret, 1888."
