An abridged edition of Alexandre Dumas's flamboyant tale of action and adventure in seventeenth-century France. 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, Alexandre Dumas's classic is a gripping adventure story of daring sword fights, romances, espionage, and murder. This sensitively abridged Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Three Musketeers features an afterword by Peter Harness. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Alexandre Dumas was born in France in 1802, the son of the half-Creole aristocrat General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas. In early adulthood, he took work as a clerk, met the renowned actor Talma, and began to write short pieces for the theatre. Dumas later turned his hand to novel-writing, and penned such classics as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. After enduring a short period of bankruptcy, Dumas began to travel extensively, still keeping up a prodigious output of journalism, short fiction, and novels. He had around forty mistresses in his lifetime and fathered at least four illegitimate children, including Alexandre Dumas fils, who later wrote La Dame aux Camélias. He died in Dieppe in 1870. Peter Harness is an English playwright, screenwriter and actor. He has contributed to programmes such as McMafia, Wallander, and Doctor Who, and was the head writer for the miniseries adaptation of Susanna Clarke's novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.
