This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's historical novel, "The Vicomte of Bragelonne". The first installment of the final episode in the epic d'Artagnan Romances, it tells the story of d'Artagnan's attempt to help the exiled Charles II take back the throne of England. Unbeknownst to him, Athos is trying to achieve the same thing. A thrilling tale of adventure and daring-do, "The Vicomte of Bragelonne" is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Dumas's seminal work. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" 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 now 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.
