The Nutcracker (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions)

by Alexandre Dumas

Read the full story of the gallant Nutcracker Prince, and revel in the magic of a delightful Christmas tradition.

The Nutcracker features the full text of Alexandre Dumas's "The History of a Nutcracker," the story that was adapted for Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet, The Nutcracker, in 1892. Lavishly illustrated with more than a hundred vintage drawings from the nineteenth century, this beautifully designed book kindles the spirit of the holidays through its account of an enchanted nutcracker made human one Christmas through the love of a young girl, and the couple’s magical journey through exotic lands of sweets and spices.

The Nutcracker is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an elegantly designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging.
