Everyman's Library No. 904; white end-papers; St Ives: Being the Adventures of a French Prisoner in England is set during the Napoleonic Wars. The hero, St Ives, is a French prisoner of war being held at Edinburgh Castle. In prison he is known as Champdivers (his mother’s family name). The beautiful Flora Gilchrist often comes to visit the French prisoners. The two become closer with each visit and St Ives begins to fall in love. In prison, St Ives befriends the English Major Chevenix. He is plagued, however, by another prisoner, Goguelat. Guessing at St Ives’s feelings for Flora, Goguelat insults her. St Ives challenges him to a duel, and using scissors for a blade, wounds him. Goguelat later dies from the wound, and the guards question the prisoners over the murder.
