Item description for Bardelys the Magnificent by Rafael Sabatini...

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of synonyms and antonyms for difficult and often ambiguous English words that are encountered in other works of literature, conversation, or academic examinations. Extremely rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority in the notes compared to words which are difficult, and often encountered in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not noted on a page, chances are that it has been highlighted on a previous page. A more complete thesaurus is supplied at the end of the book; synonyms and antonyms are extracted from Webster's Online Dictionary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bardelys the Magnificent?

Very early Sabatini, and it shows  May 24, 2003
Bardelys the Magnificent is a fairly good novel, one of Sabatini's earliest (my copy lists the copyright date as 1905). His writing isn't quite as polished as it would be later on and the story isn't told quite as smoothly as in other, later books. Still, it's a good and entertaining read.

The Marquis de Bardelys is a court favorite of Louis XIII who is goaded into a wager that he can woo and wed the country noblewoman Roxalanne de Lavédan, the wager being with his court rival who recently failed to win said fair maiden. Upon his arrival at the Lavédans' château, Bardelys is mistaken for someone else and initially unable to correct the mistake. As Roxalanne and he get along, he finds himself afraid of the consequences should he reveal himself to be the notorious libertine Bardelys (whose reputation is exaggerated, anyway). Others jealous of Bardelys for various reasons complicate matters further, and before all is finally resolved, he stands for a while in real danger of losing his head.

I give this three stars in comparison to Sabatini's other works (I have 26 of his novels), but it's still a book I'd recommend for fans of this author or those who enjoy this genre.
