This three-sectioned volume deals with the poisoner, the Marquise de Brinvilliers; a cruel and arrogant Russian countess, Vaninka; and finally, a notorious aristocrat, the Marquise de Ganges. The book is bound in a deep cerise cloth with a blind-stamped cameo illustration of two swordsmen fighting. The book has gilt spine titles and blind-stamped crossed swords on the spine as well.
The spine is somewhat faded, with some fraying at the spine tips. The book is tightly bound, and the pages are clean with no marks, stains, tears, or signatures from former owners.
