Set in France this book is about the adventures of Count de Quesnoy, and his involvement in a conspiracy to put a king back on the throne of France. The mask, itself, was of stiff leather: close-fitting, it locked just below the prisoner's ear. It was an instrument of torture as well as an effective means of hiding the identity of the prisoner - for the prisoner was the heir to the throne of France. The young Duke de Richleau was prepared to die in an attempt at the Prince's rescue. He was even prepared to take the prisoner's place, and wear the mask himself! Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
