Rare early edition of The Three Musketeers, first published in eight volumes in 1844.

This is the third edition published in France, although there were several Brussels printings of the novel in the interim. The half-title of the present edition announces ‘Oeuvres complètes d’Alexandre Dumas’, but the book is in fact a separate printing and is not part of an edition of the collected works. All early editions are extremely rare.

Douglas Munro, Alexandre Dumas Père: A Bibliography of Works published in French, 1825-1900, p. 144 (giving the date of the second volume as 1847).
