About This Item

New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Company, (1894). First Thus. Both volumes of this two volume set are in near fine condition in 3/4 white leather and a floral print paper covered boards with extensive and elaborate gilt tool work on the spine and leather of both boards. The top edge of the text blocks are gilt. Both volumes are small octavos of 7 5/8 by 5 inches with prior owner book plates on the first free end page together with a dated "April 14, 1896" gift inscription. Both volumes show what may be faint spots of foxing on the spine title labels and mild soiling to the rear boards. Volume II has a few spots of soiling on the contents particularly on pages iv and v which may be small spots of blood and pages 246 and 247 are heavily tanned due to a leather place marker having been left in. Volume I contains 363 pages with a frontispiece from a photograph of the author and vignette illustrations throughout by Maurice Leloir. Volume II contains 355 pages with a frontispiece from a painting and vignette illustrations throughout also by Maurice Leloir.

Synopsis

The Three Musketeers is a novel written by Alexandre Dumas. It recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan after he leaves home to become a guard of the musketeers. D'Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title, which refers to Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, three inseparable friends who live by the motto: "All for one, one for all" ("Tous pour un, un pour tous"). The story of d'Artagnan is continued in Dumas' Twenty Years After and The Vicomte de Bragelonne. The three novels are together known as the d'Artagnan Romances.
