Sabin, Monsieur. Monsieur Sabin was created by E. Phillips Oppenheim (Peter Benskin, General Besserley, Stanley Brooke, Joseph P. Cray, John Dickens, Nicholas Goade, Malcolm Gossett, Peter Hames, B. Jasen, Gerald Jennerton, Algernon Knox, Ambrose Lavendale, John T. Laxworthy, Baroness Claire Linz, Joseph Londe, Mannister, Lucie Mott, Sanford Quest, Aaron Rodd, Peter Ruff, Monsieur Sabin, Michael Sayers, Jasper Slane) and appeared in Mysterious Mister Sabin (1898) and The Yellow Ribbon (1903).
“Monsieur Sabin” is the pseudonym of Herbert de la Meux, Victor Duc de Souspennier, a wealthy French aristocrat whose life’s project is the restoration of the French monarchy. In Mysterious Mister Sabin he gains information about England’s naval defenses and is set to sell these plans to the Germans--their triumph over England in a war will lead to a French revolution and the return of the French monarchy--when the French “High Council,” for whom Sabin works, prevents him from doing so, on the grounds that the balance of power in the world must be maintained and that England has been tolerant of the French Royalists. Sabin retires to Massachusetts and moves in with a lover. In The Yellow Ribbon Mr. Sabin leaves retirement to rescue his wife and defeat the machinations of a European conspiracy.
