Bindings tight and firm, no previous owner signatures or inscriptions. Hugo was one of the most important facets of the French Romantic movement, and some consider him to be the greatest French poet in history. He is most famous his concern with social injustice, as exemplified in his novels Les Misérables and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Hugo declared himself a traitor when Napoleon III took power with an anti-parliamentarian stance, and lived in exile until the Third Republic was established in 1870. He was in Paris during the Prussian siege of that city in the same year, and survived by eating zoo animals. He died at age 83 and was buried in the Panthéon. Bookseller Inventory # 008884

Store Description

Johnnycake Books trades in rare and collectible books of most kinds, principally in fields of literature, illustrated, childrens, architecture/design, gardening and photography. We try to offer books that are a little unusual, offbeat and unexpected: most have a strong visual or design appeal. Our descriptions present our inventory as creatively and colorfully as possible, with occassional editorial commentary. We regard condition of our books as critical to our service: most are very good or better, in collectible condition. We are generally conservative in describing a book, even if that means it doesn't sound as good as it actually might be. We welcome your comments directly at or visit our website Best wishes in your book collecting. Dan Dwyer
