  • It is 1792, the French Revolution is at its height, and 'Madame Guillotine' is plying her murderous trade - the sons of the Revolution intent on exterminating the hated 'Aristos', sparing neither man woman nor child. But increasingly, the condemned are disappearing, whisked away to safety by an unknown Englishman, who leaves behind a simple note, bearing the image of a simple heathland flower, the scarlet pimpernel. The mysterious intruder must be stopped, and Citizen Chauvelin, ruthless revolutionary spymaster, believes he knows a way to unmask the enigmatic foreigner and lead him to his doom. Written in 1905 by Baroness Emma Orczy, 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' is a classic tale of intrigue, bravery and devotion set amidst the chaos and brutality of Revolutionary France, an enthralling page-turner that keeps the reader guessing until the final page.

  • Citizen Chauvelin, of the Committee of Public Safety, presents citizen Fouquier-Tinville, the Public Prosecutor, with the most extraordinary claim:"The dangerous English spy known to the world as the Scarlet Pimpernel," he says, "is now safely under lock and key. He must be transferred to the Abbaye prison forthwith -- and to the guillotine as quickly as might be. No one is to take any risks this time. There must be no question either of discrediting his famous League, or of obtaining other more valuable information out of him. Such methods have proved disastrous!"There are no safe Englishmen these days, except the dead ones -- and it will not take citizen Fouquier-Tinville much thought or time to frame an indictment against the notorious Scarlet Pimpernel . . . and that will do away with the necessity of a prolonged trial. The revolutionary government is at war with England now, and short work can be made of all poisonous spies!

  • El Dorado, by Baroness Orczy is a sequel book to the classic adventure tale, The Scarlet Pimpernel.As well as containing all the main characters from the first book, Eldorado introduces several new characters and features the Baron de Batz, who also turns up in Sir Percy Leads the Band and The Way of the Scarlet Pimpernel (Baron Jean de Batz is a genuine historical figure). It is 1794 and Paris, "despite the horrors that had stained her walls - has remained a city of pleasure, and the knife of the guillotine did scarce descend more often than did the drop-scenes on the stage." The plot begins when Sir Percy reluctantly agrees to take Armand St. Just with him to France as part of a plan to rescue the young Dauphin.

  • The Scarlet Pimpernel is an important figure in the formation of the modern hero. The author, Baroness Orczy, created The Pimpernel with inspiration from several literary and popular sources, yet out of those, she created a new archetypal hero. Several sources identify The Pimpernel as the prototype for the modern superhero, an inspiration to the likes of Superman, Zorro, and Batman. Also, a modernized version of The Scarlet Pimpernel inspired the heroic actions of Raoul Wallenberg. Historians call such rescuers pimpernels. Yet there is little scholarship on The Pimpernel due to the fact that the novel is not, will not likely ever be, part of the literary canon. It is discussed in high school classes, but rarely given much direct attention on the post secondary level. This book explores these issues, the literary versus popular nature of the novel, its source material, and its part in the formation of a modern archetype found among historical figures and popular entertainment. This book would be useful to those interested in The Scarlet Pimpernel specifically as well as in the literary, popular, and historic hero in general.

  • For the past eight years now -- ever since the true story of The Scarlet Pimpernel was put on record by the present author -- these gentle, kind, inquisitive friends have asked me to trace their descent back to an ancestor more remote than was Sir Percy. Strangely enough his history has never been written before. it is to the man himself -- to the memory of him which is so alive here in Haarlem -- that I am indebted for the true history of his life, and therefore I feel that but little apology is needed for placing the true facts before all those who have known him hitherto only by his picture, who have loved him only for what they guessed. The monograph which I now present with but few additions of minor details, goes to prove what I myself had known long ago, namely, that the Laughing Cavalier who sat to Frans Hals for his portrait in 1624 was the direct ancestor of Sir Percy Blakeney, known to history as the Scarlet Pimpernel. So it must also come from those members of the Blakeney family in whose veins runs the blood of that Sir Percy Blakeney -- who is known to history as the Scarlet Pimpernel -- for they in a manner are responsible for the telling of this veracious chronicle.

  • A timeless novel of adventure, intrigue, and romance is sparked by one man's defiance in the face of authority...Armed with only his wits and his cunning, one man recklessly defies the French revolutionaries and rescues scores of innocent men, women, and children from the deadly guillotine. His friends and foes know him only as the Scarlet Pimpernel. But the ruthless French agent Chauvelin is sworn to discover his identity and to hunt him down.There have been many imitations of The Scarlet Pimpernel, but none has ever equaled its superb sense of color and drama and its irresistible gift of wonderfully romantic escape.
