Montblanc Alexandre Dumas Writers Limited Edition Mechanical Pencil – only 9000 (including sets) were produced and this is number 8751. The pencil has never been used and is presented in virtually as new condition…. it comes with its original book style presentation box, outer and unstamped documentation.
Launched in 1996, as the yearly offering from the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Alexandre Dumas is one of the most famous offerings from the WE series… do you know why? Because originally the pens were released with the wrong signature – that of Dumas’ son, rather than his own signature. Montblanc then hurriedly tried to recall the pens and reissued them with the correct signature… this one is a ‘correct’ signature pens and these feature an N after the limitation number.
Alexandre Dumas was one of the most famous novelists and playwrights of the 19th Century. He wrote more than 300 novels, with two of the most recognisable being “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”.
In our opinion, this is one of the most richly detailed of all the Writers Editions, with the shimmering barrel and cap offering a wonderful contrast to the almost dark brown resin. The gold trim works perfectly and the distinct sword shaped clip, makes this such a handsome writing instrument.
The important details are as follows…
Number: 8751 / 9000
Condition: Virtually As New
With every pencil that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
This pencil is ready for many years of use or simply to be tucked away as part of a wider collection. The value of the Dumas writing instruments appears to be on a steady increase, so this represents a rare opportunity to purchase an unused example at a very favourable price.
