Item Description: Carleton, Publisher, New York, 1862. First American edition and first edition in English of Victor Hugo's masterpiece. Complete in five octavo volumes. Fantine (171 pages plus four-page publisher's advertisement), Cosette (164 pages plus four-page publisher's advertisement), Marius (150 pages plus two-page publisher's advertisement), Saint Denis (184 pages), and Jean Valjean (165 pages plus two-page publisher's advertisement). Publisher's matching cloth with gilt spine titles. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Victor Hugo's "great novel has been hailed as a masterpiece of popular literature, an epic poem in prose about God, humanity, and Hugo. Hugo hoped that Les Mis?rables would be one of if not the 'principal summits' of his body of works. Despite its length, complexity, and occasionally unbelievable plot and characterization, it remains a masterpiece of popular literature. It anticipates Balzac in its realism, but in its flights of imagination and lyricism, its theme of redemption, and its melding of myth and history, it is uniquely Hugo" (Dolbow, 149, 214). Charles E. Wilbour was hired by the Carleton Publishing Company to translate Hugo's grand masterpiece, and he did so very quickly, allowing the first American edition to be published within months of its French release. The intense advertising campaign waged by Carleton resulted in massive sales for Les Mis?rables, solidifying Hugo's epic in second place (behind only Uncle Tom's Cabin) in pre-Civil War American book sales.

Item Description: A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven, 1862. Couverture rigide. - A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven, Bruxelles 1862, Fort in-8 (14,5x23cm), 10 tomes en 5 volumes reliés. - Véritable édition originale parue quelques jours avant celle de Paris, sans mention d'édition, ce qui est rare. Elle diffère quelque peu de l'édition parisienne, notamment par ses pages de titres en noir, et ses tables établies en 5 parties, détaillant deux tomes, ce qui peut orienter le relieur comme ici à relier l'ensemble en 5 livres et non en dix. Reliures en demi maroquin chocolat d'époque. Dos à 4 nerfs ornés de roulettes en queue et tête, de double filet dorés sur les nerfs, et de filets à froid entre les nerfs. Légères traces de frottement. Une rayure au dernier caisson du tome 3-4. Plats frottés. Brunissures éparses, notamment au début de chaque tome, puis plus rares sur l'ensemble. Une bordure en partie dénudée sur le plat supérieur du dernier tome. Une signature sur quelques faux-titres. Bel exemplaire en demi maroquin d'époque. On affirmait autrefois que l'édition de Paris avait été censurée et qu'elle différait de l'édition belge ; on sait aujourd'hui qu'il n'en est rien, et que c'est Hugo qui a lui-même diffusé ces bruits ne pouvant croire qu'à Paris, certains passages ne seraient pas ôtés. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition published a few days before that of Paris, without edition statement. It differs somewhat from the Paris edition, including its pages in black titles, and tables established 5 parts, detailing two volumes, which can guide the bookbinder here as to link all 5 books and not ten. Binders half morocco chocolate contemporary. Back to 4 nerves decorated with wheels and tail head, double gold thread on the nerves, and blind fillets between nerves. Slight traces of friction. A scratch the last box of volume 3-4. rubbed flat. Brunissures scattered, especially at the beginning of each volume and more rare on the whole. Beautiful copy in half morocco contemporary.
