Item Description: Paris Charles Gosselin Libraire, 1831. First edition, first issue with no subsequent edition statement on the title page. Two volumes, exquisitely bound by Cuzin in nineteenth century full green morocco with raised bands to the spine and geometric border design to covers and spine compartments. Titled in gilt, with gilt dentelles and edges and marbled endpapers. 212mm x 130mm (page size). Engraved title pages to both volumes, complete with half titles. A fine, tall set, barely trimmed with many leaves uncut, all beautifully clean with no chips or tears. Two inconspicuous book-labels to the front blank. The binding has been retained in sparklingly fine condition. A superb example of this rarity of Gothic literature in a fine Parisian binding. The author's first full length novel, that is now one of the key works of nineteenth century literature, and upon which much of the author's reputation rests. The first edition was published in an edition of 1100 copies which was subdivided into four issues with a different edition statement on the title page. Thus there are only 275 copies of the first issue. The book has subsequently been published in English under the title, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". Francisque Cuzin (1836-1890) was regarded as the finest bookbinder in the world at the time. "If you want a volume bound in the highest style of art the man to go to is M. Cuzin of the Rue Séguier. who took early to bookbinding, and is now at the head of the hadicraft in Paris, and perhaps the world." - The Pall Mall Gazette (December 1886). "This first edition, in fine condition, is the rarest of all the works of Victor Hugo; it has had a resounding impact worldwide, and is one of the most difficult titles of the Romantic period to obtain" (Translated from Carteret - Le Trésor du Bibliophile Romantique et Moderne) Carteret I 402.

Item Description: Paris Émile Testard 1889, 1889. 2 volumes. Limited issue of the Édition Nationale, one of only 250 copies printed on Japon of a total edition of only 1000 copies. Illustrated with large engraved pictorial head-pieces by Luc-Olivier Merson each provided in two states, one in place and one on an adjacent plate and with a number of full page engraved plates also by Merson and also provided in two states, an engraved portrait of Hugo in each volume, printed by Gery-Bichard. Large 4to, lusciously bound by Charles Muenier, one of his 'Cuir Incisé' bindings and a fine, large example. The bindings are of full chocolate morocco, laid into the boards are large panels incorporating alternative materials, with elaborate and laid designs of gargoyles, leaves, angels and griffons worked within the framework of a Rose Window. In the center of each window are large circular inlays featuring; a portrait of Quasimodo, a goat, a gargoyle and a spider on its web. The spines feature tall raised bands ruled in blind with handsome gilt lettering and a red and brown morocco inlay portrait of Quasimodo, the inside boards are finished in brown crushed levant with an elaborate gilt and blind panel design, the flies are of marbled paper backed in silk, a.e.g. Each volume has a matching chocolate morocco chemise trimmed with fine marbled paper, the spines are with raised bands matching those of the volumes and with gilt lettering and with rose-window tooling. There are matching marbled paper and morocco slipcases for each volume. The publisher's original printed wrappers to the books have been preserved inside these magnificent bindings. 371, (1); 424, (8) pp. A superb copy with both volumes in extremely fine condition. A MAGNIFICENT BELLE ÉPOQUE SIGNED AND DATED BINDING BY CHARLES MUENIER IN HIS FINEST 'CUIR INCISÉ' FASHION. In this binding style in which a panel of incised leather is worked and molded and then sunk into thick boards of traditional morocco. To succeed in this technique requires great delicacy of handling, but when done correctly provides an equally great scope for emblematic treatment. Meunier was one of the small handful of masters in this technique. Effective and daring, Muenier brought this craft created by Grolier to a new more latter-day aesthetic. he particularly aimed to achieve an artistic and psychological interpretation of the contents of every book he bound. A student and thinker, as well as a craftsman, he believed that the chaste and formal bindings to which we are all accustomed were impersonal and inexpressive. He held that that they seldom or never bore the slightest relation to the text they held within. In short, Muenier wanted us to be able to judge a book by its cover. To achieve this, Meunier combined the restrained craftsmanship of the early masters with the bolder inventions of the nouveau style. Bookseller Inventory # 25130

Item Description: Paris: Gosselin, 1831, 1831. 2 volumes, octavo (220 × 137 mm). Uncut in contemporary quarter calf, rebacked with original spines laid down, black spine labels, sprinkled paper-covered boards, preserved in a half-morocco folding case. Binding extremities worn, some foxing or browning, but still a very good copy. Each title-page with a wood-engraved vignette by Tony Johannot. First edition, first impression. According to the publisher's own statement in the Journal des débats (10 May 1831), the first impression of 1,100 copies was separated into four groups, each bearing a fictitious "édition" statement on the title-page, a scheme designed to make the public believe that the novel was selling rapidly. All four "éditions" are textually identical (witness the identical pagination errors on II, 439 ["339"] and 491 ["391"]). The title-page of this copy reads "Quatrième édition".

Item Description: Paris Charles Gosselin, 1831. Victor Hugo’s Gothic Masterpiece HUGO, Victor. Notre-Dame de Paris. Quatrième édition. Paris: Charles Gosselin, Libraire, 1831. First edition, first printing, fourth issue ("Quatrieme édition"), of Hugo’s gothic masterpiece. It is generally accepted that the publisher indiscriminately printed different editions on the title-page of all copies to make the book seem as if it was now in four editions, however the text is all identical. Two octavo volumes (8 3/8 x 5 3/16 inches; 212 x 132 mm.). [8], 404; [4], 536 pp. Complete with half-titles. Wood-engraved title vignettes after Tony Johannot. Contemporary drab boards with green calf spine labels decoratively stamped lettered in gilt. Some light foxing. Small paper flaw just affecting blank lower corner of 8/1 (pp. 113/114) in Volume I, and a similar paper flaw just affecting the lower blank corner of 19/4 (pp. 295/296) in Volume II, a few additional minor marginal paper flaws. Armorial bookplate of E. Van Havre and small orange paper shelf label on front pastedown of each volume. Embossed stamp of E. Van Havre on title of each volume. Overall, an excellent copy. "This first edition, in fine condition, is the rarest of all the works of Victor Hugo; it has had a resounding impact worldwide, and is one of the most difficult titles of the Romantic period to obtain" (Carteret). Gosselin brought out the novel on 16 March 1831 in an edition of 1,100 copies, as was his general practice. This first printing was distributed into four separate issues of 275 copies each, the subsequent three issues being designated as "second edition," "third edition," and "fourth edition" respectively on the title-pages. "Johannot’s title-page vignettes for the first edition of Notre-Dame de Paris show Quasimodo in the pillory receiving a drink from Esmeralda (Volume I) and Esmeralda escorted to the gallows (Volume II)" (Ray).

Item Description: Perrotin, Paris, 1844. Hardcover. Hugo's Enduringly Popular "Hunchback," in a Gorgeous "Cathedral" Binding. 279 x 184 mm (11 x 7 1/4"). 2 p.l., 485, [1] pp., [2] leaves, including the prospectus for this publication bound in at the end. First Printing of this Illustrated Edition. VERY STRIKING CRIMSON STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO IN "CATHEDRAL" STYLE BY NOULHAC (signed and dated "1926" on front turn-in), BOARDS WITH BLIND, DEEPLY IMPRESSED GILT, AND ONLAID DECORATION, both covers with a border of multiple gilt fillets and blind palmette roll, the center of each board with a large pictorial panel featuring a gothic wall with two tiers of columns and arches, the tracery windows onlaid in citron, black, and maroon morocco and elaborately gilt; broad raised bands with oblique hatching, spine gilt in compartments featuring a frame of broad and narrow rules, onlaid black morocco quatrefoil centerpiece with gilt roundel at center, black morocco label, turn-ins with seven thick and thin gilt rules, cream-colored watered silk endleaves, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt, original pictorial wrappers bound in at front and rear.

Front flyleaf with the morocco bookplates of Laurent Meeus (see item #68), Pierre Van der Rest, and Raoul Simonson (see item #61). Ray 234; Vicaire IV, 265-66. Title page and a few other leaves with just a hint of marginal foxing, three or four leaves with very small marginal tear in fore edge (two expertly repaired), original wrappers slightly soiled, but A VERY FINE COPY, internally very bright and clean, with quite generous margins, and with THE STUNNING BINDING IN SUPERB CONDITION. There could hardly be a more appropriate binding for this work than Noulhac's elegant so-called "cathedral" design. As would be expected from a binder of his reputation, the design is beautiful, and the work has been performed with the greatest of skill. "Notre Dame de Paris," usually known in English as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," is the quintessential Romantic novel, and its publication in 1831 made young Victor Hugo the leading Romanticist of 19th century France. As a child, Hugo (1802-85) was shaken by the experience of the arrest of a political refugee whom his mother had hidden for months in their garden, and partly as a result, he was ever after a supporter of the underdog. His deep sympathy for the oppressed is plainly seen in "Notre Dame," which brings together the twice-kidnapped gypsy dancer Esmeralda and the grotesque hunchback cathedral bell-ringer Quasimodo, whom she, for a moment, befriends. Although verisimilitude precludes an amorous relationship between two such characters, their kindness and heroism are nevertheless moving and dramatic, and the discovery of their skeletons in the same place at the end of the novel is compelling. But there is much more to Hugo's enduringly popular first novel than the relationship between gypsy and hunchback; in fact, for the author, the title he has chosen suggests an entirely different focus, as the famous cathedral serves throughout the book as the center of action and context or characterization. This work, a perfect vehicle for displaying the Romantic style, has been illustrated here by a number of leading French artists. Ray calls it a "noble volume, harmoniously planned, well printed on fine paper with ample margins, and splendidly adorned." Ray singles out the 14 plates by de Lemud for special praise, writing that they are "profoundly studied; they are drawn, indeed, for posterity," and also extols the headpieces and tailpieces, which he says are "as rewarding as the pla.
