Edition adaptée aux liseuses.

Extrait :"Alexandre le Grand avait atteint les sommets de l. a. gloire. Roi de Macédoine, il avait soumis les Grecs et vaincu les Perses, fait plier l’Égypte, et franchi l’Euphrate, traversé le Tigre et atteint l’Indus, pris Persépolis et Babylone, sans jamais faiblir ni se soumettre. Sa réputation s’étendait d’Orient en Occident, les mondes de sa double puissance. Ses légions avaient rencontré et vaincu bien des peuples, et sa toute-puissance était solidement établie sur l. a. terre. Il avait tout connu ; des plus grandes victoires aux plus immenses richesses. Et comme il fut élève d’Aristote, il était empreint de finesse et d’intelligence."
