Dumas, Alexandre [Alexander]
The Works of Alexandre Dumas [The Count of Monte-Cristo and The Three Musketeers].
Society of English and French Literature 1893-1896, New York. Octavo, 32 volumes, bound in three quarters morocco over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panel, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, color frontispiece to each volume. One of a thousand numbered copies. In near fine condition. A very attractive set. The Count of Monte Cristo, in particular, is "perhaps the outstanding work of fiction to reveal the futility of human vengeance, even when it attains its utmost completeness. Maurice Baring calls it the most popular book in the world" (Frank Wild Reed). "One of the best thrillers ever written" (Reid, 134). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
