The Three Musketeers
It is 1625 and France is under threat. D’Artagnan, a young nobleman, sets off to Paris to seek his fortune as a member of the King's Guard and befriends three musketeers - the mysterious Athos, ambitious and romantic Aramis, and bumbling Porthos. Together the friends must use all their guile and ingenuity to outwit the dastardly schemes of Cardinal Richelieu and the glamorous spy, Milady.
As fresh and entertaining today as when it was first written, The Three Musketeers is a gripping adventure story of daring sword fights, romances, espionage and murder. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges. Written by Alexandre Dumas with afterword by Peter Harness. Hardcover; 686 pages.
