The Complete Count of Monte Cristo – (In Five Volumes) by Alexandre Dumas
These vintage books contain Alexandre Dumas’s famous adventure novel, ‘The Complete Count of Monte Cristo’.
Set in early nineteenth century France during the time of the Bourbon Restoration, it tells the story of a man’s wrongful imprisonment, his escape, and his indefatigable quest for revenge. A masterful tale of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, “The Complete Count of Monte Cristo” is rightfully one the most famous novels of all time, and deserves a place on every bookshelf.
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including “The Three Musketeers” and “Chicot the Jester”. Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over 200 motion pictures.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before – such as ‘The Complete Count of Monte Cristo’, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this vintage text now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition – complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
Here, at Alexandre Dumas Works, you can find the best of this of this scintillating author’s historical novels, essays, plays, and travel books.
Through republishing works such as ‘The Complete Count of Monte Cristo’, it is hoped that the writing of this most widely read of French authors, can continue to delight – almost two centuries after its initial publication.
