Book Description: Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie, Bruxelles (Brussels), 1862. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, extra-illustrated with 25 original photographic plates by Gustave Brion, the first and most famous illustrator of Les Miserables. "Ever since its publication in 1862, Les Miserables has remained one of the most widely read novels in the world. Indeed, its appearance was a unique phenomenon in the history of publishing, by the scope of its success among the elite as well as the people, national as well as international, with general readers as well as critics. In addition, dozens of film version- from France, the United States, Italy, Egypt, India, Japan, and the Soviet Union- have perpetuated the legendary quality of the book. Perhaps more than any other work of literature, Victor Hugo's novel has flourished as part of our international consciousness" (Kathryn M. Grossman, Hugo's Romantic Sublime). Illustrated with 25 mounted albumen prints by Gilmer, after paintings by Gustave Brion. For many readers, the extremely popular images by Brion were the first and most enduring images of their favorite Les Miserables characters. The photographs were issued as an independent suite shortly after the first edition. This extra suite usually contains a portrait of Hugo as well, not present here. Many of the plates are signed by Brion with black ink or blue stamp. Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie, 1862. Octavo, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Ten volumes. Occasional foxing to text (as always); first 16 leaves of volume I (including the title) cropped a half-inch shorter than the rest, but still with ample margins; the rest of the text with extraordinarily large margins; bindings with light scuffing. A handsome set with outstanding illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 1279
