Fredonia Books (NL). Paperback. New. Paperback. 604 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 1.5in.These were the guardsmen - better known as as the kings musketeers! Gems are missing, the mistress kidnapped and the musketeers are sent to rescue both. Do you recogonize the characters Dumas wrote The Three Musketeers and immediately the readers fell in love with the characters and their escapades. In 1902 Dumas penned The Three Guardsmenmore of DArtgnan, Porthos and Athos adventures! By universal consent Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870), Pere is now acknowledged the most entertaining of the writers of romance. For variety of incidents, sprightliness of dialogue, and vividness of narrative no tales of adventure can compete with such works as The Three Musketeers or The Count of Monte Cristo. It is doubtful also, whether the life of any novelist comes as near as the life of Alexandre Dumas to what is expected of an entertaining work of fiction. Viewed as a hero of romance, the great novelist is almost as striking a figure as his picturesque and fascinating DArtagnan, so that his Memoirs and the numerous volumes in which he relates the story of his travels seem to differ from his other narrative works only in the use, for the hero, of the first instead of the third person of the verb.
