This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's historical novel, "Twenty Years After". The sequel to "The Three Musketeers", it is set twenty years after the first episode.

Packed with intrigue and daring-do, "Twenty Years After" will not disappoint fans of Duma's work. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "Chicot the Jester" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his lavish 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, are becoming extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this antiquarian book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
