Notes: Many of the dates, such as for the novel Ascanio, are estimates. There may also be unlisted alternate titles, as the titles often depend on the translation. The Conspirators is also known as The Chevalier d’Harmental. The novel The Vicomte de Bragelonne (aka Ten Years Later), is often split into three parts – The Vicomte de Bragelonne, Louise de la Valliere and The Man in the Iron Mask (the later is the best known). We also recommend that you keep an eye out, as many editions of Dumas’ novels are published in multiple volumes.

The novel Joseph Balsamo has several alternate titles, including Memoirs of a Physician, Cagliostro, Madame Dubarry, The Countess Dubarry and The Elixir of Life. Ange Pitou is also known as Storming the Bastille or Six Years Later. The Countess de Charny is also known as Andree de Taverney, or The Mesmerist’s Victim. Ascanio was co-authored by Paul Meurice. The Knight of Maison-Rouge is also known as The Knight of the Red House and Le Chevalier de Maison-Rouge.
