What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Rebound

A collection of five novels by important Romantic French author Victor Hugo, known outside of France mainly for his works 'Les Misérables' and 'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.' He is considered to be one of the most important French writers in history. Not only was he a skilful and prolific writer producing a miscellany of works such as satires, epics, poetry, novels, history &c., but also an illustrator and an activist for social rights, campaigning for causes such as the abolition of capital punishment. 

This group is comprised of a miscellany of later editions by Routledge, dated 1886 although Les Misérables and Toilers of the Sea are undated, and respectively dated from Jisc c1879 and [1885]. The authorised English translations. 

Including Les Misérables, Toilers of the Sea, By Order of the King,, History of a Crime: the Testimony of an Eye-Witness, and Ninety-Three

A very attractive collection bound in a fine half calf over marbled boards.

Condition

In a half calf binding with decorative gilt to the spine and marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Externally lovely with minor shelf wear only and a minimal rubbing to the leather. Internally, firmly bound. The odd minor spot to the odd leaf, otherwise the pages are generally bright and clean.
