    La vera storia del Bandito Pasquale Bruno (Capitaine Arena) (italien/Italian)

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     The continuation of "Le Speronare."
     It contains the inserted story, "TERENCE LE TAILLEUR," said to have been borrowed from the "Revue Britannique." In its serial form it apparently included "Pascal Bruno," which was later published separately, and its place taken by "La Cage de Fer," purporting to be the historical facts concerning the famous bandit.
     Original edition : Paris, Dolin, 1842, 2 vols., 8vo., pp. 309, 314, each with table of contents in addition.
     Forms one volume in the standard Calmann-Lévy edition, and one in their "Musée Littéraire."
     Part of Le Vasseur's "Alexandre Dumas Illustré," Vol. XXII.
