Honoré de BALZAC (1799 - 1850), translated by Ellen MARRIAGE (1865 - 1946)

Part of the La Comedie Humane and something of a sequence to Balzac's Father Goriot, the short book's title is the name of the pawn broker/money lender the father Goriot utilized to maintain his spoiled daughters in the luxury he had accustomed them to. This is a continuation of the tale of one of those daughters, Mme Restaud. (Summary by JCarson)
