About this book

The Three Musketeers is a novel written by Alexandre Dumas. It recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan after he leaves home to become a guard of the musketeers. D'Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title, which refers to Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, three inseparable friends who live by the motto: "All for one, one for all" ("Tous pour un, un pour tous"). The story of d'Artagnan is continued in Dumas' Twenty Years After and The Vicomte de Bragelonne. The three novels are together known as the d'Artagnan Romances. 

First line

ON THE FIRST Monday of April, 1625, the market town of Meung, in which the author of the Romance of the Rose was born, seemed to be in as much of a state of revolution as if the Huguenots had just turned it into a second La Rochelle.

From the rear cover

In his Memoirs, Monsieur d'Artagnan relates that, on his first visit to Monsieur de Treville, Captain of His Majesty's Musketeers, he met the illustrious corps in which he was soliciting the honor of enrolling. Their names were Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

First Edition Identification

The Three Musketeers was originally published as a serial novel, appearing one chapter at a time in the Parisian newspaper Le Siècle from March 14, 1844 to July 1, 1844.
