About this Item: George Peirce, London, 1846. wrappers. Condition: Very good. First Edition. 6 vols. 1st edition in English, 1st issue in parts (all covers numbered by hand). Original wrappers, part VI with chips to the back, else very good, complete, unrepaired, and rare as rooster eggs. Dumas wrote this adventure as a high tension anxiety (ticking clock/jail-break plotline), to be the central novel in his series about the French Revolution, but as he got deeper into the others (Memoirs of a Physician, 1848, Queen's Necklace, 1850, Ange Pitou, 1851, and Countess of Charny, 1854) the nuances of the series' overlapping cast (mainly Phillipe de Taverney) no longer fit. So he let the novel stand alone, and it does so with resilient fame. Ex-Bob Jackson, this very set (not that they could have found another) was last seen 19 years ago at the Grolier Club, in their exhibit, Essential Parts (recorded on page 16 of their 1996 catalog). The Red House (La Maison-Rouge) were the ferociously dedicated, and heroically resolute, personal guard of King Louis XVI and his family, so named for their brilliant red cloaks. Dumas resurrects their shadowy leader, The Red Knight himself, as his secret agent in disguise, the tip of a royalist spear, leading Batz's inspired intrigue (The Carnation Conspiracy) to rescue Marie Antoinette from the prison at the Conciergerie. The result is breathtaking reader whiplash, remindful of the disquiet in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (the exemplar for a choice of heroes, wherein both sides are positive they are in the right), and it presages with a clear prescience the James Bond bravura of action spy, and the Mission Impossible style of whirlpool count-down plotline.

About this Item: Garnier, Paris, 1845. 1/2 calf. Condition: Very good. First Edition. 6 vols. 1st edition, preceded by a serialization in the newspaper La Presse (Dec. 1844-Apr. 1845), and generally coinciding with, or preceding, the Brussels pirated editions. Contemporary 1/2 speckled roan, small chip to the spine base of vol. IV, rubs to paper sides, else very good, unrepaired, nice margins, complete with half-titles. The first Valois novel, a high beam book, both great (Dumas at the pinnacle of his genius) and rare (ABPC shows no auction sales and OCLC lists just 2 sets in libraries, world wide, Yale and Cal. State Northridge, and though we found another in France, 3 plus this one is still as elusive as any novel from his pen). A noble copy, ex-a German Prince with his armorial stamp to each title page. La Reine Margot is an electrifying tour de force, and an enrapturing read, pulsating with life (une grande classique). It opens in 1572, initiating a trilogy that devalues family values, and novelizes the events surrounding the last French dynastic transition (from Valois to Bourbon), and it's entrenched among the very finest historical romances of all time, but why listen to me? I'll quote from F. W. Reed, bibliographer, collector, and academic champion of Alexandre Dumas, builder of the comprehensive library, and a serious intellectual, who was not generally given to exaggeration or overstatement, and most assuredly was not, when his subject was equating one Dumas novel to another. "Some of Dumas finest historical portraits are to be found here, indeed it is probable.they have left their indelible stamp upon the historians.[including], Charles IX, Catherine de Medici, Henri de Navarre, Marguerite de Valois [and] Henri (Duc) de Guise. The fictional characters, La Mole and Coconnas, are only surpassed by the Musketeers themselves, as types of the truest of friends, and brothers-in-arms." And Douglas Munro, the bibliographer of Dumas' editions in French, states clearly, and without much argument that: "?it [La Reine Margot] was seen to be better constructed and, by and large, better written than the immortal 'Les Trois Mousquetaires.'" Not as famous in America as The Three Musketeers or The Count of Monte- Cristo, due to it being more serious, authentic, bloody, tenacious, political, and following history more faithfully. The pace is mercilessly fast, and the action is constant, and all the clashing, scheming, factions believe they serve a higher, noble purpose, so it is replete with complexities, and a shifting choice of heroes, and therefore, was never seen as a straightforward, movie friendly swashbuckler. And yet it lingered, cinematically irresistible, until an exotic, and prodigious, and expensive, French, German and Italian financed, Patrice Chéreau directed, film was finally written, made, and released in 1994. It starred Isabelle Adjani, Daniel Auteuil, Virna Lisi, Jean-Hugues Anglade, Dominique Blanc, and Vincent Perez, and is well worth an Amazon download if you're ready to turn your sofa into a shock station. And unlike most movies based on historical novels, this one captured much of Dumas' darkness, daring, villainy, valor, and wicked intrigue. And yes the sex is in your face, but hey, you can always wash your face. And as for books and films generally: Rooting for the lame book you overpaid for to be made into a film to help you out, is like the collectible ceramic plate industry rooting for Taylor Swift to have a tragic death (Book Code). Not unexpectedly, the book is even better than the movie, and, like most books adapted to film, it is so just because it is reading, because reading is amazing. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it unfolds at exactly the pace you choose, it is blissfully silent, it can be companionship for your feelings, or escape from them, it is simultaneously exercise and rest for your mind, you can read with focus or skip judiciously, it tells you other peoples' thoughts and lets you compare them to your own, it gives you knowledge of your world, and experience of th.

About this Item: Dumont, Paris, 1842. 1/2 calf. Condition: Very good. First Edition. 4 vols. 1st edition. Reed's bibliography (A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas Père, 1933, 1974) lists Dumont's 1843 Paris imprint of this title as the 1st edition, so he didn't have, or see, or hear about this one dated 1842 (Munro's bibliography gets the date right, but he whimsically scrambles the authorized Paris and pirated Brussels editions). A rare book. ABPC records no sales at auction in 40 years. OCLC lists only 2 sets in libraries world wide (Indiana and Yale), and a half set, vols. I and II only (at The Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris), and even if that misses one or 2 buried somewhere in the backwoods, it's nearly a chimera. Contemporary 1/2 speckled roan, rubs to paper sides, very good, unrepaired, nice margins, complete with half-titles, ads, and contents. A noble copy, ex-a German Prince with his armorial stamp to each title page. Le Chevalier d'Harmental unleashed Dumaspalooza, the first of his towering and best selling historical romances (romans d'or), and his first novel researched by Maquet (you can talk about the miracle, but you never talk about the angel). Here is a 4 year wedge of the history that led to it, your trail of breadcrumbs. In 1838 Dumas serialized, and then published as a book, his first novel, Le Capitaine Paul, to temperate notice. For 3 years he pressed on, sharpened his skills, perfected his craft, surmised the intricacies of historical romance, and intuited the preferences of his audience, then unified all 4 into a new ritual of high art, exploding on the scene with this ingenuity, the first coupling of an historical novel with a cloak and dagger thriller. It's set (1718), in the midst of The Cellamare Conspiracy, a critical pivot in Europe's saga, following the 1715 death of King Louis XIV and the French throne's passing to his 5 year old great-grandson, King Louis XV. It's more sinister, sophisticated, and malicious, than any historical novel that preceded it, and it's grimmer and grittier than most of those that followed. The regent, the Duc d'Orléans, and the regency council, led by the Duc d'Maine, quarreled, plotted, and tried to murder each other in factions. The Spanish ambassador, Cellamare, got involved, and forged a seditious intrigue, but lost his gamble to play one clique against the other and install the Spanish King as the new regent. "The history of ideas is the history of the grudges of solitary men." -Cioran Le Chevalier d'Harmental is an unquestionably weighty book in the chronicles of literature, no less than the modern historical romance's genotype, an evolved descendant of ideas first conceived, explored, formulated, and executed by others, but Dumas leaves none of them undeveloped. He interrogates their assumptions more deeply, and traces their implications more exhaustively. Where (earlier) others insisted in general terms, he undertakes a famously comprehensive, exacting and sustained reconnaissance, investigation, deconstruction and reconstruction, of the subject. Where others had cautiously compared, he expounds a bold, amplified, highly matured conception of writing as a science, a systematically self-reflexive mode of engaging the reader and knowing the world. Between 1842 and 1854 Dumas wrote historical novels, that stand time's test, better then anyone. His leggiest dozen or so are mammoth classics, integrating adventure and romance into roller coaster rides that, to this day, yank readers on quivering lifts to the zenith of reading, and the 1st Paris editions of almost all his grand titles are impossibly rare. Whoa, hold it. If this book is so important and so rare, why is it that these outliers in the wilderness of California have it for sale? Specifically, it's just a brief aberration in an inefficient rare book market unsuited to put an accurate value on a 1st edition so infrequently encountered, that it has no comps. And generally, it's that antiquarian bookselling is ill fitted to grasp the shifting vagaries of refined appreciations that prompt evolvin. Seller Inventory # 22

About this Item: Société belge de librairie Hauman, Brussels, 1845. Cloth. Condition: Very good. First Edition. 7 vols. in 3. 1st edition (in French), 1st issue (16mo. in 7 vols.). This 1st edition is the real deal, unquestionably preceding Baudry's Paris edition, and Hauman's own 2nd edition (18mo. in 10 vols.), the 3 other 1845 Brussels editions, and all the rest. Any arguments against its priority test logic. Munro clearly states that this edition, and this issue of it, is the 1st of all, and no one has cogently tendered any other sequence. 19th century purple cloth, spines faded to tan, very good, bound without half-titles but otherwise whole, with Romanesque Aventure de ma vie, par le Bibliophile Jacob, filling out the final 93 pages of vol. VII, as issued. Compelling, appealing, and scarce, and though this edition's priority over the Paris edition is sure, some collectors would pay 20 times our price for Baudry's edition and swear it is the only one bestowing pride of ownership, while others would insist that 1st is always best. And that's because each of us looks at any given book, and sees what we see, and what we see is not always the same. Like sometimes I look into the face of our dog (Lily the Kid) and see fatalistic sadness and wistful anguish, when all she is really doing is staring at the lamp waiting for a circling moth to run out of gas. Twenty Years After is the first sequel to The Three Musketeers, set in the political upheaval of 1648-1649, and I'll maintain it's the most historical of Dumas' historical romances. It opens during 2 civil wars, and only the charisma of the Musketeers could possibly hold up the fictional portion of the plotline, against the dizzying storms of such volatile historical events, coincident and parallel revolts against the absolute power of the crown, the parliamentary insurrection in France of the first Fronde (which mostly collapsed into the Peace of Rueil, and 3 years of fragmented, factional intrigues) and those in England of Cromwell's second Civil War (which culminated in the 1649 execution of King Charles I and the establishment of the Commonwealth). The historical action first divides, then occupies, then infects, engulfs, and finally reunites the Musketeers, now all grown up, savvy, constant, dynamic, and ready for the personal defiance demanded by the times.

About this Item: London: Methuen, [1904], 1904. Octavo, pp. 8 [advertisements]; 115. In publisher's decorated wraps, white card overprinted in red and black. Front of book features stylised titles and author's name bordered by a sword design, with central image of the 'wolf-leader' surrounded by a pack of ferocious wolves. Book is in extremely good condition, with very light edgewear, an ink number to left extremity of front panel and superficial chips to the spine panel. Clean, crisp and bright with border colours vivid around the striking Frank Adams cover illustration. Internally crisp and clean, with the customary reams of advertisements for Whelpton's Purifying Pills and Swan Fountain Pens preceding the story. Described as 'One of the best Werewolf novels ever written', this is a chilling tale of a man who gains the ability to control wolves after begging for assistance in his revenge against a persecutor, from a giant talking wolf walking on its hind legs. This extremely fragile item is in near-fine condition, making a rare survival. Dumas' novel is superb, teeming with rich Gothic description, humour, and provocative sentiment; 'And as we travel nearer and nearer to the grave, do we again draw closer, ever closer to the cradle?'.

About this Item: Meline, Brussels, 1849. 1/4 morocco. First Edition. 6 vols. 1st edition (?), following the 1849-1850 serial in La Presse's newspaper (a newspaper is what generation Z call a hobo laptop), and roughly parallel to 5 other Brussels editions, one from Leipzig, one from Berlin, 2 partial ones from New York in French, and Cadot's 11 vol. Paris edition. Here is the cut and thrust of your one ride per catalog on the bibliographical hamster wheel. Munro (the bibliographer) decided to project his chronology from an unreliable canon of how few volumes were dated 1850, but in a giddy fit of fang bibliography, he did so steriley, and listed 2 unfinished NY editions as the 1st of all (being incomplete, they didn't issue any volumes in 1850). And he stated, "they were certainly unfinished" but then assigned order as if they were, without proof that even one of their volumes was issued first. So, he was only correct that the NY publishers completed printing first, but that advantage always resides with those who quit on a book before the final chapters are written. And it descended from there. He abandoned precision, in this case, and wrongly applied his own math. For one example, Lebègue's Brussels edition that Munro listed 6th, would be the real 1st based on his own arithmetic, with just 29% of it dated 1850 (all the others more, with ours at 50%), so I know his chronology is wrong for this title, from any perspective. Complicating matters, Meline, our set's publisher, also issued a 7 vol. 1849-1850 edition, but Munro rightly says that our 6 vol. edition precedes it. Contemporary 1/2 dark green morocco, red labels, vol. II label 20% chipped, spines darkened, paper sides rubbed else very good, complete with half-titles. OCLC found 10 sets in libraries, ABPC says none sold at auction, but the OCLC stats better reflect reality. The second book in Dumas' 4 novel series charting the French Revolution, the reign of terror, and its immediate aftermath, that beheading of thousands of poor human beings in the name of some pitiless abstraction. His plot pierces a byzantine conspiracy trained on Marie Antoinette, using diamonds as the bait, propaganda as the aim, and a necklace as a marker for the guillotine. It's written in Dumas' consummate style, and flings its light over the prelude to a horror that was worse than the day Miley decided to stop following you on Twitter. Seller Inventory # 24

About this Item: Meline, Brussels, 1840. Half-calf. Condition: Very good. First Edition. 2 vols. 1st edition (published by Meline in 16mo.), preceded by a serialization in Revue de Paris, but preceding the other 1840 Brussels editions from Jamar and Hauman, and Meline's later octavo edition, as well as Dumont's 1840-1841 Paris edition (see Munro page 99).

I, else a very good set, attractive and complete with both half-titles. A scarce book. OCLC/World Cat lists 7 copies in libraries worldwide. Alexandre Dumas was an elite swordsman and duelist; his master of arms was Augustin Grisier. Grisier had left France in 1824 seeking glory in St. Petersburg where he had met a young woman who's lover, a Knight in the Emperor's Guard, was naively drafted into the Decembrist Conspiracy, a poorly plotted attempt to remove the Czar (Nicholas I) and replace him with a republic. Back in France Grisier recounted his experiences to Dumas who then wrote this romance, an early attempt by him to meld political collusion, adventure, and romance. Seller Inventory # 303

About this Item: The Limited Editions Club, London, 1937. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. 1st edition (1,500 numbered copies) with these illustrations (12 of them), all from watercolors by Marie Laurencin, and signed (in ink) by Laurencin. Fine in near fine publisher's slipcase. An apt and fitting pairing of novelist and artist. Laurencin was a major figure in 20th century art; Dumas fils was a major figure in 19th century sons (he wasn't the party, he was the apartment below the party). I'll throw an orchid at Laurencin's feet. Unlike most of the elite French painters, corralled (seduced) by LEC during the depression, who took the commission flippantly, Laurencin, skipped into it from the corner of Happy and Satisfied, accepted it seriously (so the moment, so the life) and ceded a beautiful book.

About this Item: Stanley Paul & Co., London, 1915. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First English Language Edition. This stated (by the publisher) first English edition is clean, tight, square with sharp corners. It is lightly rubbed at the ends of the spine and other edges and has some occasional very light foxing. Volume I has 395 and volume II 376 clear pages plus ads. Each book has an "Ewer Bookplate" on the front paste down. This bookplate (well known in its own right) is by the English artist Frederick Carter (1883-1967). Carter was an etcher and engraver who worked closely with people such as Austin Osman Spare, the artist and occultist, and later D.H. Lawrence. He had a deep interest in the supernatural and power of symbols. Monica Ewer was drama and film critic of the Daily Herald and author of some 50 novels of light romance. William Norman 'Trilby' Ewer was a writer on foreign affairs for the same newspaper and a poet who is remembered for a bit of verse I gave my life for freedom - this I know: For those who bade me fight had told me so. and for spying for the Soviet Union in the 1920's. There are pencil notes on the rear end papers which reference sections of the book and those sections have marginal pencil lines, otherwise the books are unmarked. Although there is no prof, we have assumed these notes were made Monica or Norman and considering what each was doing in 1915, it could be either. The books are bound in blue cloth covered boards with gold titles on the spine. Seller Inventory # 012915
