The Count of Monte Cristo [1896]

£34.99

Product description

Published in 1896 by Frederick Warne & Co. Bound in red cloth with gilt lettering to the spine. Illustrated frontispiece by M. Valentin depicting Monte-Cristo revealing himself to Caderousse.

Bookplate on the front end paper presenting the book to a Mr R. Carter in 1911, from the Men's Own Club at Union Chapel.

Alexandre Dumas (1802 – 1870) was a French writer, best known for his numerous historical novels of high adventure which have made him one of the most widely read French authors in the world. Many of his novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, The Man in the Iron Mask, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne were serialised. Dumas also wrote plays and magazine articles, and was a prolific correspondent.

In 1815 Edmond Dantès, a young and successful merchant sailor who has just recently been granted the succession of his erstwhile captain Leclère, returns to Marseille to marry his Catalan fiancée Mercédès. Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantès is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration.

In Fair to Good condition. Some rubbing wear to the boards and the spine is very faded. The corners are bumped and the boards are slightly bowed. The end papers are both yellowed with foxing. The book has deckled edges that have become discoloured and yellowed. The binding is loose and near the back of the book with the webbing showing. Overall, the pages are clean and legible.
