About this Item: Paris: Baudry, 1844, 1844. 8 volumes, octavo. Original yellow wrappers, titles to spines and covers in black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Housed in red quarter morocco solander boxes by the Chelsea Bindery. A little skilful conservation to spines, trivial loss to some ends, front joint of vol. II neatly reattached, faint marginal foxing to contents. A very nice copy of this scarce publication, in bright wrappers. First separate edition, extremely rare in the original wrappers. The author's best-known work and one of his two masterpieces, Les Trois Mousquetaires was originally published earlier the same year as a serial novel in the Parisian newspaper Le Siècle, from 14 March to 1 July 1844. The Three Musketeers "has become the archetypal adventure story, as well as the best known and the most widely read (and adapted) of all French novels. In the historical context of its production it was also the prototype of the roman-feuilleton (serial novel), which enjoyed phenomenal success in the 1840s. It provided a natural outlet for Alexandre Dumas's talents and energies as he combined elements of the historical romance of Sir Walter Scott with the formulas and themes of the romantic feuilleton. This 'Homeric clash of Titans', as David Coward described it, immediately became a best-seller, and was quickly translated into several languages, with no less than six pirated Belgian editions on the market in the year of publication. As Anthony Burgess noted, Dumas was truly 'one of the great myth-makers of his and any age'" (Murray, p. 118). Murray, Encyclopedia of the Romantic Era, 1760-1850, Vol. II, 2004; Coward (ed.), The Three Musketeers, 1991. Seller Inventory # 124078

About this Item: Meline, Cans, et Compagnie, Brussels, 1844. First edition. THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE THREE MUSKETEERS TRILOGY. ALL THREE NOVELS: PREDATING ALL THE PARIS EDITIONS, AND THE ONLY VERSION PRESERVING DUMAS' ORIGINAL TEXT, INCLUDING THE COMPLETE CHAPTER LE BONHOMME BROUSSEL. "Les Trois Mousquetaires". Brussels: Meline, Cans, et Compagnie, 1844. 5 vols. octavo (150 × 95 mm.), pp. [iv], 276; [iv], 303; [iv], 268; [iv] 262; [iv] 293. With all the half-titles. Each title with a woodcut vignette of a musketeer. Publisher's green pebble-grained cloth, spines lettered direct in gilt. A fine copy. [WITH] "Vingt Ans Après (Suite des Trois Mousquetaires)". Brussels: Meline, Cans et Compagnie, 1845. 6 vols. octavo bound in 3, (150 × 100 mm.), pp. [ii], 283; [ii], 295; [ii], 295; [ii], 257; [ii], 312; [ii], 379. Each title with a woodcut vignette of a musketeer. Publisher's dark blue cloth blind-stamped with a floral pattern, red morocco labels. Extremities slightly rubbed, closed tears to cloth at spine heads of all three volumes. A couple of outer joints with short cracks but secure. A very good copy. [WITH] "Le Vicomte de Bragelonne (Suite de Vingt Ans Après)". Brussels: Meline, Cans et Compagnie, 1848-1850. 13 vols. octavo bound in 6 (145 × 100 mm.), pp. [iv], 285; [iv], 285; [iv], 263; [iv], 276; [iv], 283; [iv], 277; [iv], 284; [iv], 279; [iv], 278; [iv], 257; [iv], 251; [iv], 281; [iv], 329. With all the half-titles. Contemporary half calf over marbled paper boards, flat spines gilt, lettered direct in gilt, all edges sprinkled blue. A fine copy. THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE THREE MUSKETEERS: THE COMPLETE TRILOGY IN VERY RARE EARLY BRUSSELS EDITIONS, the original printings of the novels. Predating the first Paris editions, and preserving Dumas' original text-extensively revised in all the Paris and subsequent editions. With the complete chapter Le Bonhomme Broussel, lacking in the Paris and subsequent editions. The first Paris editions of the Three Musketeers trilogy are legendarily rare: there are probably only two libraries worldwide with complete sets (Yale and the Bibiliothèque Nationale de France). The Brussels editions that preceded the first Paris editions appear to be equally rare in libraries: we have been able to locate only two complete sets (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, University of Göttingen). They are certainly equally rare on the market (see below). The present set includes the following editions, as set out in Munro's Alexandre Dumas Père, A Bibliography of Works published in French 1825-1900: fifth Brussels edition of Les Trois Mousquetaires, preceding the first Paris edition (Munro p. 143); third Brussels edition of Vingt Ans Après, preceding the first Paris edition (Munro p. 165); sixth Brussels edition of Le Vicomte de Bragelonne, preceding the first Paris edition (Munro p. 195). THE BRUSSELS EDITIONS OF THE THREE MUSKETEERS The Brussels editions of the Three Musketeers remain mysterious and little-understood. It was long assumed that the novels first appeared in book form in Paris, following their serial publication in the Parisian newspaper Le Siècle. In 1924, however, Laurent Carteret, in his Trésor du bibliophile Romantique et Moderne, drew attention (without giving any details) to the existence of a group of Brussels printings of the novels-the first acknowledgement of the Brussels editions in any major bibliography (Carteret p, 235). In 1935, the next significant bibliography of French literature, Hector Talvart and Joseph Place's Bibliographie des auteurs modernes de langue francaise, assembled details on about 22 Brussels editions of Dumas. For Vingt Ans Après, for example, we find: "N.B. En 1845, une edition de Vingt Ans Après a paru à Bruxelles chez Meline, Can et Cie en 6 vol. . ." And for Le Vicomte de Bragelonne: "N.B. Cet ouvrage, auquel Aug. Macquet a collaboré, a paru également en 1848-50 à Bruxelles, chez Meline, Cans et Cie, en 13 vol. . ." BIBLIOGRAPHIES OF T . . . (FULL DESCRIPTION ON REQUEST).

About this Item: Chapman and Hall, London, 1846. First English language edition. Octavo (pages measure 218 x 133mm): iv, 464; iv, 464; complete with all 20 illustrations by M. Valentin. 19th century full diced russia calf by "Proudfoot Binder." Black morocco spine labels. Bindings a bit worn and rubbed, but without any wear or cracking to the hinges. Internal contents generally Very Good with some minor foxing and soiling. This remained the standard English text until the Buss translation was released in 1996. Along with The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo cemented Dumas' reputation as France's premier adventure writer and a forefather of popular fiction. "First to sheer narrative power -- Dumas was a master of narrative -- and secondly to the theme. It is a story for all time, a 19th-century version of 'The Arabian Nights,' a gorgeous piece of escapism from the drudgery of daily life. The glamorous figure of Dantes, who triumphs over injustice and with his limitless wealth and power can control Destiny, punish his enemies and reward his friends, is an ideal which stirs all men's repressed longings for and fantasies of personal greatness" (Sudley). Yet The Count of Monte Cristo offers more than a sprawling tale of revenge. Through its web of literary references, most notably to Plato's Allegory of the Cave and Dante's Divine Comedy, the novel participates in the tradition of the epic hero; and it traces Edmund Dantes' progress from his fall and path through the hell of Chateau d'If, as he makes his way through revenge and temptation to enter a new life marked by forgiveness and generosity. As it concludes, Dumas leaves his reader with a final thought: "all human wisdom is contained in these two words, 'Wait and Hope.'". Seller Inventory # 2254

About this Item: Simms and M'Intyre, W. S. Orr and Co., Belfast and London, 1846. First edition. TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE IN ENGLISH OF THE COUNT OF MONTE CHRISTO. THE ONLY ENGLISH TRANSLATION BASED ON THE ORIGINAL TEXT OF THE NOVEL. Octavo (160 × 100 mm.), pp. [8], 400, [2]. With the engraved part-title, half-title, and leaf of publisher's advertisements. Original publisher's plum cloth, decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers. Very occasional slight spots, spine rubbed and darkened, slight restorations to extremities. TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE IN ENGLISH, very rare, of any part of Le Comte de Monte Christo, and the first and only English translation based on the original text of the novel. With the original date of 24 February in the first line of the text, and the original spelling of "Monte Christo" throughout. Predating the Chapman and Hall edition of the same year. In the original publisher's cloth. Le Comte de Monte Christo first appeared as a serial in the Parisian newspaper Le Journal des Debats from 28 August 1844 to 15 January 1846. This was followed by a Brussels edition in book form (1845-1846), set up from the Journal des Débats and issued in parts, followed by a Paris edition in book form (1845-1846, now a very rare and sought-after book: the last copy to appear at auction sold for EUR 253,000 (Christie's Paris 21/4/2010)). English publishers were quick to respond to the remarkable popularity of the novel in France. First to start bringing out Monte Christo in English were Simms, M'Intyre and Orr, at the beginning of March 1846, just six weeks after the final instalment of the novel in Le Journal des Débats. Like the Brussels publishers, Simms and M'Intyre issued the novel in parts: the first third of the text (the action in Marseilles and the Chateau D'If) appeared under the title of The Chateau D'If, as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist, a popular series published by Simms and M'Intyre between 1846 and 1863 (Sadleir vol. 2 p. 146). Following the success of The Chateau D'If, Simms and M'Intyre brought out the remaining portion of the text (the action in Rome and Paris) a little later as volumes 8 and 9 of The Parlour Novelist, under the title of The Count of Monte Christo. The title-pages of all three volumes give the translator as Emma Hardy. Simms and M'Intyre state their priority in the preface at the beginning of The Chateau D'If: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publishers feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'oeuvre of the most distinguished of French Novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS. . . Belfast, March 1, 1846" (p. [5]). The Simms and M'Intyre translation was based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in Le Journal des Débats. This is confirmed by the date of 24 February in the first line of the text (later revised to 28 February), and the spelling of Christo with an "h" throughout (this spelling was retained in the early Paris and Brussels editions, and was only changed to Cristo in the later first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Écho Des Feuilletons, 1846)). A second English translation (the first illustrated English translation) of Monte Christo (The Count of Monte-Cristo [sic], London, Chapman & Hall, translator unknown) also appeared in 1846. This was based on a revised text of the novel, (most obviously identified by the date of 28 February in the first line, and the spelling of Cristo without an "h" throughout). The source text for the Chapman & Hall edition was possibly the first illustrated edition published in Paris. According to Munro and Sadleir, the Chapman & Hall edition appeared after the first part of the Simms and M'Intyre edition, Parlour Novelist vol. 3, and probably just before Parlour Novelist vols. 8 and 9. "Although Parlour Novelist Nos. 8 and 9 in all likelihood post-dated the Chapman and Hall edition, No. 3 pre-dated i . . . (FULL DESCRIPTION ON REQUEST). Seller Inventory # NM00060
