A classic swashbuckler, Alexander Dumas’s The Three Musketeers tells the story of young d’Artagnan as he attempts to join the most elite military group of the day, the Musketeers of the Guard, who report directly to the king. D’Artagnan sets out to Paris with a letter of introduction, vouching for his fencing skills, only to be intercepted by spies for the evil Cardinal Richelieu, who take his money and the all-important introduction. Nevertheless, d’Artagnon proves his worth as he fights alongside the most famous trio of fencers in the Musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. The four become close friends as they fight for the king against a bevy of spies, traitors, and seductresses. The Three Musketeers is one of the great adventure stories of all time, giving us larger-than-life characters who extend beyond the scope of this novel. Anyone who likes adventure stories will love this classic of the genre.

This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "From the Earth to the Moon" (French: "De la terre à la lune") is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne. It tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, a post-American Civil War society of weapons aficionados, and their attempts to build an enormous sky-facing Columbiad space gun and launch three people — the Gun Club's president, his Philadelphian armor-making rival, and a French poet — in a projectile with the goal of a moon landing. The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and, considering the comparative lack of any data on the subject at the time, some of his figures are surprisingly close to reality. However, his scenario turned out to be impractical for safe manned space travel since a much longer muzzle would have been required to reach escape velocity while limiting acceleration to survivable limits for the passengers. The character of Michel Ardan, the French poet in the novel, was inspired by the real-life photographer Félix Nadar. "De la Terre à la Lune, trajet direct en 97 heures 20 minutes" est un roman d'anticipation de Jules Verne, paru en 1865.
