Item Description: A.Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & C., Bruxelles, 1862. Copertina rigida. Book Condition: discrete. Prima edizione. Prima edizione. Testo francese. Opera completa in dieci volumi. Cm.21,7x13,2. Pg.4080 complessive. Buone legature coeve in mz.pelle con titoli e filetti in oro ai dorsi a quattro nervature. Tagli spruzzati. Eccellenti condizioni di conservazione. Si tratta della prima edizione assoluta del capolavoro di Hugo, pubblicato alla fine di marzo del 1862 pochi giorni prima dell'edizione parigina. Non è chiaro se la scelta dell'editore belga fosse dovuta alla necessità di sollecitare i colleghi francesi o a motivi economici. "L'idea del romanzo risaliva la 1830; poi vi era stata la stesura delle "Misères" nel 1845-1848 (pubblicate nel 1937); ma intanto si era fatta strada l'esperienza balzachiana di cui Hugo volle tener conto, come pure del romanzo dei bassifondi di Sue; le tendenze socialiste gli si erano accentuate . il romanzo dei "Misèrables" è il libro più popolare forse della letteratura europea ." (M.Zini). > Michaux, "L'edition originale des "Misérables", 110-116. 7000 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 78243

Item Description: Pagnerre, 1862. Couverture rigide. - Pagnerre, Paris 1862, 10 tomes en 10 Vol. in-8 (14,5x23,5cm), reliés. - Edition originale parisienne parue quelques jours après celle de Bruxelles. Fausse mention de troisième et quatrième édition. Reliure en demi chagrin rouge d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de caissons décorés, séries de filets gras et maigres. Rousseurs pâles éparses sur un papier bien blanc. Belle série agréablement reliée. Afin de faire un point sur les divers jugements des bibliographes : Alors que Vicaire signale que l'édition française est la véritable originale, Clouzot affirmant que les deux sont originales, on doit préciser que l'édition belge est parue trois jours avant (le 31 mars pour Bruxelles et le 3 avril pour Paris), mais la vérité ne tient pas à une histoire de date. Lacroix est l'éditeur de Hugo, Pagnerre n'en est que le dépositaire à Paris, ce qui explique la présence du nom de Lacroix derrière le faux-titre, conjointement à celui de Lacroix. On sait en outre que L'oeuvre devait paraître dans toutes les grandes capitales en même temps, ce qui arriva à quelques jours près. Pour la question des mentions, cela est vraisemblablement assez simple : pour des raisons commerciales de coût on a procédé à un seul tirage, certains avec des mentions, d'autres pas, afin de les distribuer au cours de l'année comme si chaque fois, il s'agissait de nouvelles éditions. On comprend Clouzot disant qu'une édition sans mention est plus désirable, car elle parait avoir été antérieure, mais dans les faits, et pour vendre, quand les pages de titre sans mention ont été épuisées on a vendu dans le désordre ces pages de titres avec mention ou non, et on a composé très souvent des exemplaires portant différentes mentions, il est cependant vrai que les exemplaires sans mention furent les premiers mis en vente, et que les éditions avec mention possèdent des pages de titre en rouge et noir. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Paris first edition published a few days after that of Brussels. False mention of third and fourth edition. Bound in red half contemporary shagreen. Back with nerves decorated with series of bold nets and meager. To take stock of the various judgments of bibliographers: While Vicar reports that the French edition is the true original, Clouzot saying the two are original, we must state that the Belgian edition appeared three days before (31 Brussels in March and April 3 for Paris), but the truth is not held at a time of history. Hugo Lacroix is the editor Pagnerre is only the custodian in Paris, which explains the presence of the name of Lacroix behind the half-title, together with that of Lacroix. Also known as The work must have appeared in all the major capitals simultaneously, what happened to close a few days. To the question of mentions, this is probably quite simple: for commercial reasons of cost was carried out only one draw, with some references, some not, for distribution in the year as if every time there were new editions. Saying we understand that an edition without mention Clouzot is more desirable because it appears to have been earlier, but in reality, and to sell when the title without mention of pages have been exhausted were sold in the mess these securities pages with distinction or not, and we made very often copies bearing various inscriptions, it is however true that copies without mention were the first offered for sale, and the editions with honors have title pages in red and black.

Ever so slightly shelf-cocked. 171 pages + ads. This is the first American edition of Les Miserables -- it was published in 5 parts, of which this is the first. Pages are toned from age; it was not printed on the best quality paper. Text is in English, printed in double columns. There is a stain at the bottom margin, a sort of gray cloud below the text throughout the book, never affecting the words, but always there. Previous owner has written his name large on the title page and inside front cover, "W.B. Farwell." The name Geo H. Booth Jan 1876 is also signed on the inside front cover. On the rear endpaper there is a pencil floorplan of a fine house at the corner of Park and Second Streets (city unknown). Willard Brigham Farwell was a journalist, miner and early settler in California -- he went there in 1849 just after the gold discovery. He campaigned for Lincoln on the western frontier and Lincoln rewarded him with an appointment as Naval Officer for the District of San Francisco. He died in 1903. This is the first english translation of the first part of the novel, published in France earlier the same year. Please email with questions or to request photos. Bookseller Inventory # Fred-Y129

S. edition of the fourth book of Victor Hugo's classic work, Les Miserables. Les Mis was first published in 1862, and this volume is the first U.S. edition, published in the same year. Saint Denis opens with some history to set the stage, and proceeds to follow the lives - both hardships and bright spots - of the characters we have come to know and love, including Marius, Cosette and Valjean, Gavroche and Thenardier. Hugo concludes this volume with some piercing observations of the French criminal justice system of the time. ***DESCRIPTION: Green pebbled cloth binding with blind embossed decorations on the covers, light brown lettering on the spine, salmon pink endpapers, advertisement on the verso of the second flyleaf (opposite the title page) for Les Miserables, noting "the price of the original French edition is $3.00 for each novel, in paper, while the American translation is 50 cents, in paper covers, and $1.00 in cloth binding", vintage prior owner name and address in pencil, written in a flowing hand, on the front free endpaper; pagination (i-vi), (7)-184. ***CONDITION: Overall the volume is in fair only condition, mostly due to some old water damage.
