This expertly translated and lavishly illustrated biography traces The Maid of Orléans' progress from ordinary peasant girl to seer of mystic visions to savior of France. Forty full-page color plates by French artist and illustrator O. D. V. Guillonnet enhance historian Frantz Funck-Brentano's highly readable narrative. Originally published in 1912 as part of a series of young adult biographies of French leaders.

Warrior, martyr, saint: Joan of Arc has captivated imaginations around the world for centuries. The legendary heroine of a tumultuous episode from the Hundred Years' War, she led the French army to triumph over the English at the Siege of Orléans in 1429. Two years later the 19-year-old was captured by the enemy and their French collaborators, charged with heresy, and burned at the stake — the end of her life but the beginning of her enduring fame.

This beautiful and inspiring book will enchant readers of all ages. A Calla Edition, originally published by Ancienne Librairie Furne, C. Boivin & Cie, Paris, 1912. Oversized, just like the original was, bound in handsome deep blue cloth with silver decorative embossing on the cover, as well as a full color dust jacket.
