Here is a real treasure, that is for sure. It is a book entitled " The Count of Monte Cristo". This is only part two, part one is missing. But, it is the early revision of the French novel, with correction in the name from " Christo " to " Cristo". Plus , there is the chapter entitled " The House On The Allees de Meilhan "included in this volume. Also, it has NO, illustrations.Published by Chapman & Hall, but not embossed ! In 1889, the publisher " Little Brown", updated this earlier revision, and removed the chapter" The House On The Allees de Meilhan", and the last chapter was " The Departure". The binding is in fair to good condition, considering the age of the item. In side the front cover is the signature" Chas. Lake / Reno/ Nv./ Oct 14 1895 !! So, this volume can not be the 1889 revision, because it does have the additional chapter that was added in 1846, but removed in 1889 !! Also, all the pages have an unusual design on the ends, to match the front and back cover. very interesting item.Anyone out there have , part 1 ? ( RH)
