    Description :

    "In 1841 appeared the three volumes of Alexandre Dumas’s 'Excursions sur les bords du Rhin'. The first volume is dedicated to Belgium, the other two to the Rhine that Dumas follows from to Aix-la-Chapelle to Strasbourg. With great verve, the novelist blends his travel souvenirs with spicy anecdotes and his stories with colourful legends...When he arrived at the cathedral of Strasbourg, he admits he has not seen anything more beautiful throughout his whole trip and adds that he won’t try to describe it, but simply would refer it to his readers as the eighth wonder of the world."
