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 [Alexander]

New York: Burgess, Stringer and Company, 1846. First American edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, contemporary three quarters calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers, two volumes bound in one. Separate title page for each volume. Complete with twelve illustrated plates. In very good condition with the previous owner's signature of volume one. First editions in the English language are rare, with Yale being the only library to house a copy of this first edition. 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 and Company,. 1846.. First U.S. edition. Two volumes in one, as issued, freshly re-bound in three-quarter leather over marbled boards. 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. Two editions were published in the U.S. in 1846; the other being in Boston. Though no known priority has been established, the bibliographies available to us (F.W. Reed, London: 1933 and Douglas Munro, New York: 1978) list only this one and we therefore believe it to be the first. Further, Reed's bibliography states an American reprint was issued the same year as the Burgess, Stringer edition, "but with plates so badly printed as to be almost caricatures of the original." Both the New York and Boston editions are based on the Chapman & Hall, London edition of the same year and include 12 of the 20 M. Valentin illustrations, as called for. [Rusty Mott of the bookselling firm Howard S. Mott, Inc., kindly pointed us to 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 has appeared twice at auction (in 1940 & 1997). There are NO AUCTION OR SALE RECORDS of this New York edition and only a handful of copies in libraries worldwide making it AN ACTUAL RARE BOOK. Pages a little age-darkened and light foxing or staining, primarily to margins, throughout. Still textually good to very good with the binding being quite fine. .
