About this item

This complete set, volumes 1-3, of The Count of Monte Christo is a very early 1848 edition, and was published by Simms and M'Intyre, London & Belfast. From research, two of the indicators of very early editions is the fact that there is an 'h' in the title 'Christo', and the first line of the novel is dated 24th February, later editions are worded 28th February. They are part of the Parlour Library series, which were more affordable editions at the time. It is quite rare to have all three volumes still together as a set, one of the title pages differs slightly to the others but they are a set. Each measuring 16.5cm x 10.5cm, they show wear and tear to the cover, some foxing to the pages, and some damage to the spines (please see photos). The covers are hardback and feature a lovely floral pattern.

Policies, Returns & Shipping: As the items I stock are old, they often show signs of age and wear, most of which I describe in the listing, but it would not be possible for me to list all marks, age related dirt etc, be aware of this. The same is true for the materials used in the item. I do not claim to be an expert on any of the items I sell. Items may be marked as dispatched once the item is packaged. If you would like to know a return shipping estimate please get in touch. Returns must be sent tracked. Once your order has been returned in the same condition as it was sent, I will be able to issue you a full refund, less the amount you paid for postage. Any damage incurred during return shipping will incur a loss of value charge, depending on the item value. I am not responsible for paying the return costs of your order or any packaging costs. Should you wish to cancel an order, and require a form to complete, please get in touch, and I will send you one. It is up to the buyer to arrange a reputable courier/postal service. For larger/heavier items, the courier sometimes applies a fee for non collected and returned to sender items (UK £6, International £20), this fee will be deducted with a packaging fee if a refund is preferred. I can also resend the item for the same shipping cost plus the courier’s return to sender fee. Due to courier policies, fragile items (glass, stone, ceramic) are shipped at the buyers risk. I cannot refund if broken in transit. I take pride in my packaging and have shipped mirrors etc all over the world. For items made of breakables including glass and stone - I ship breakables frequently and I take great pride in my protective packaging. For UK Highlands, Channel Islands, and Northern Ireland customers, please expect additional shipping costs for items over 2kg and/or bigger than a Royal Mail small parcel, as the courier charges more for delivery to this area. For more information please get in touch before purchasing. Sourced and sold from the UK, sold according to UK law and any action will be taken through a UK court. I sometimes use recycled cardboard boxes for shipping, they are strong and sturdy, and help to reduce our carbon footprints. Due to the items being of varying ages, they are not recommended for children. By purchasing you agree to these terms.
