The Story of my Escape (from the prisons of the Republic of Venice) by Giacomo Casanova

The Story of my Escape
(from the prisons of the Republic of Venice)

by Andrew K. Lawston

Europe's greatest adventurer. Thrown into an escape-proof prison for a crime he probably committed. The question is, which crime?

In 1755, the infamous Giacomo Casanova was locked up without trial in the Leads.

This is Casanova's own account of the escape bid that made him a celebrity across Europe, full of his unique wit and philosophy, translated into English in full for the first time.
