The Count Of Monte Cristo

By Dumas, Alexandre




The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. It is often considered to be, along with The Three Musketeers, Dumas' most popular work. The writing of the work was completed in 1844. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from the plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.

The Count of Monte-Cristo.

Dumas, Alexandre [Alexander]

London: London: Chapman and Hall, 1846. First edition in English of the author's masterpiece, published just one year after the original French edition and before the American first. Octavo, 2 volumes. Bound in full contemporary brown calf over, gilt titles to the spine. Twenty wood-engraved plates after Henry Valentin. In near fine condition with some light rubbing to the extremities. First editions in the English language are rare. 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).

THE COUNT OF MONTE-CRISTO.

Dumas, Alexandre.

New York:: Burgess, Stringer Company,. 1846.. First U.S. edition. Two volumes, as issued, newly rebound in one volume. Being one of two editions published in America in 1846. The other was published in Boston; priority not established (though we believe this to be the first--see below). This famous tale of revenge and retribution, of which the publisher said "his African blood is warm, and in his pages we accordingly discover the glowings of a heart gushing with feeling....," was inspired by Dumas' own Haitian-born father, an enslaved black man. Both of the American editions are based on the Chapman & Hall London edition of the same year, which was also an unattributed translation with illustrations by M. Valentin. The London edition had 20 illustrations, while this U.S. edition has only 12, which is all that are called for [Rusty Mott of the bookselling firm Howard S. Mott, Inc., kindly pointed out to us an 1847 ad in Marguerite Blessington’s MARMADUKE HERBERT for this book; the ad states, "The work is published in one large Volume, likewise in two Volumes:--in either form it is sold at One Dollar, accompanied by Twelve splendid engravings"]. The Boston edition (with the same text) was issued in four volumes in wraps by H. L. Williams. We believe this Burgess, Stringer edition may be the true U.S. first edition, as both the F. W. Reed bibliography of Dumas (London: Neuhuys, 1933) and the Douglas Munro's BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WORKS TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH TO 1910 (NY: Garland, 1978) list this edition as the first American and make no mention of the Williams edition. In fact, Reed indicates in his bibliography that an American reprint was issued in the same year as the Burgess, Stringer edition, "but with plates so badly printed as to be almost caricatures of the original." There are two sales records for the Boston edition (one at Goodspeed’s in 1940, the other at Baltimore Book Auction in 1997). However there are NO AUCTION OR SALE RECORDS of this New York edition on either American Book Prices Current or Rare Book Hub. Two volumes, as issued, newly rebound in one volume. Three-quarter leather with raised bands and leather spine labels; with marble boards, new linen hinges, new endpapers, and new sewn headbands. Pages a little age-darkened and light foxing or staining, primarily to margins, throughout. Still good to very good. And, ACTUALLY RARE. .

London: Ward Lock, 1934. Photoplay edition issued to coincide with the British release of classic film version of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ starring Robert Donat, Elissa Landi, Louis Calhern, and Sidney Blackmer.

Very good plus copy with a trace of edge wear in a very good bright price-clipped dust jacket with some dust soiling to the spine and rear panel and some small chips and tears. The front panel of the jacket is a superb color painting of the dashing Robert Donat holding a sword in his role as Edmond Dantes which wraps around to the spine and shows Elissa Landi gazing at him. One of the most attractive photoplay editions.
