Author: by Maurice Leblanc
Three Books In One!In one volume, a collection of over 25 adventure tales featuring Maurice Leblanc’s classic gentleman-burglar Arsne Lupin, many also featuring his nemesis Sherlock Holmes (or rather, Herlock Sholmes). Included in this volume are tales drawn from three books:The Extraordinary Adventures of Arsne Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar (translated by George Morehead in 1910)Arsne Lupin Versus Herlock Sholmes (translated by George Morehead in 1910)The Confessions of Arsne Lupin (translated by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos (1865-1921) in 1913).
Arsne Lupin is the fictional gentleman thief and master of disguise created by French writer Maurice Leblanc. The character was first introduced in a series of short stories starting in 1905, eventually starring in over 17 novels and 39 novellas. While a thief operating on the “wrong” side of the law, Leblanc frames Lupin as a force for good – one-upping and unmasking villains far more evil than he.
A memorable and beloved character, Lupin has been the subject of numerous film and TV adaptations, including a 2021 blockbuster TV series. Maurice Leblanc (1864 1941) was a French novelist and short story writer, known primarily as the creator of the fictional gentleman thief and detective Arsne Lupin, often described as a French counterpart to Arthur Conan Doyle’s creation Sherlock Holmes.
