“I am not proud, but I am happy; and happiness blinds, I think, more than pride.”

Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

 

French writer Alexandre Dumas provided some of the greatest literature of the late-19th-century. His work has been translated into nearly 100 languages! “The Count of Monte Cristo” has gained timeless popularity, being reproduced in print and in several films to this day! 

 

“The Count of Monte Cristo” is the tale of Edmond Dantès, a young and successful merchant sailor who has just recently been granted the succession of his erstwhile captain Leclère, returns to Marseille to marry his Catalan fiancée Mercédès. Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantès is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration.

 

This lovely undated 19th century printing was published in America circa 1869 as two volumes bound in one.
