First published in book form in 1844, The Three Musketeers is a well-established classic in the western literary canon. Set in France circa 1625, the novel follows the swashbuckling, chivalrous d’Artagnan, who leaves Paris with hopes of joining the heroic Musketeers of the Guard. Along the way he meets three of the group’s most raucous members, Arthos, Porthos, and Aramis, with whom he encounters many adventures. The novel was translated into English in 1876 and has iterated through countless adaptations for stage, television, film, video games, board games, and graphic novels. This collector’s edition pairs the text with LeGrand’s superb illustrations. It is part of the Easton Press 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series.
