The exotically named Baroness Orczy was the daughter of a Hungarian
aristocrat who came to London at the age of fifteen. First
published in 1905, her historical novel The Scarlet Pimpernel
became almost as famous as the French Revolution itself. It tells
of the escapades of Sir Percy Blakeney, whose mission is to help
the innocent victims of the Reign of Terror escape the guillotine.
Assuming ever more daring and ingenious disguises he suceeds in
both outwitting his opponents and in keeping his activities a
secret from his English friends. Everyman's Library Children's
Classics publishes the novel in a new and up-to-date edition to tie
in with the BBC production to be screened this Christmas.
