The Extraordinary Adventures of Ars&amp;amp;egrave;ne Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar
A contemporary of Arthur Conan Doyle, Maurice Leblanc (1864-1941) was the creator of the character of gentleman thief Arsène Lupin who, in France, has enjoyed a popularity as long-lasting and considerable as Sherlock Holmes in the English-speaking world.
This is the delightful first of twenty volumes in the Arsène Lupin series written by Leblanc himself.
In an unprecedented act of literary pastiche and cross-over, Sherlock Holmes and Lupin actually meet, briefly in this first volume, and more substantially in the next.
