La Vénitienne

drame/play, pub:1834, action:1513

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     A prose drama in five acts and eight tableaux.
     It was announced and published as by Anicet Bourgeois, but it was well known that Alexandre Dumas' name should have been included, he having had no inconsiderable share in the composition. Even the venomous de Mirecourt admits this.
     The scene is placed in Venice in 1513.
     Vapereau describes this as one of Bourgeois's best works.
     First performed at the Porte Saint Martin Théâtre on the 18th of March, 1834.
     Original edition : Paris, Barba, 1834, 8vo., pp. 229, with one engraving. Dumas' brilliant collaboration is proclaimed in the dedication to him by Anicet Bourgeois.
     Reprinted in the "Magasin Théâtral," Paris, Marchant, 1843, large 8vo., of two columns, pp. 31. This edition omits the dedication to Dumas.
