About this Item

226 pp. + 14 pp. publisher's catalogue at rear. 12mo. Alexandre Dumas, pre (1802Ð70), the noted French Romanticist, was author also of "The Three Muketeers", The Count of Monte Christo", "The Man In the Iron Mask", etc. His father was a Napoleonic general, but he took his name from his mother, a black slave from Haiti. His illegitimate but acknowledged son (one among at least three), also Alexandre Dumas, followed him in the literary tradition ("The Lady of the Camellias"). The father has been ever popular as a novelist, in America, where in the modern era he is most famous for the film adaptations of his novels. "The Forest Rangers" was simultaneously published in France and in America, the translation having been drawn from the manuscript. Dumas later converted it to a play. Active also in writing for magazines, making adaptations, authoring a cookbook, he was even more famous for his plays. Like Charles Dickens, he often wrote serial novels and made much money. He was often in debt from his profligacy. A romantic life for a romantic author. Wear at ends of spine. Corners bumped. Few spots on text edges. Mild foxing. Else, Very Good. Brown publisher's cloth embossed in the blind on covers. Titled in gilt on spine. First American Edition. Translated from the manuscript and published simultaneously with French Edition. The half-title is in French, while the title page is in English. Bookseller Inventory # 10914
