Description

1902 - A Frontispiece and numerous other portraits with descriptive notes by Octave Uzanne. The story begins: Upon the southern slope of one of those barren hills that rise abruptly here and there in the desolate expanse of the Landes, in Southwestern France, stood, in the reign of Louis XIII, a gentleman's residence, such as abound in Gascony, and which the country people dignify by the name of chateau. Two tall towers, with extinguisher tops, mounted guard at the angles of the mansion, and gave it rather a feudal air. The deep grooves upon its facade betrayed the former existence of a drawbridge, rendered unnecessary now by the filling up of the moat, while the towers were draped for more than half their height with a most luxuriant growth of ivy, whose deep, rich green contrasted happily with the ancient gray walls.
