About this Item: Paris, Pagnerre, 1862. 10 vol. in-8, demi-veau violet glacé, dos à nerfs ornés de filets et fleurons dorés, titre doré (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. Mentions d'éditions à certains volumes. Victor Hugo eut dès 1830 le projet d'écrire cette fresque monumentale ; le plan n'en était pas établis, ni les personnages définis mais il pensait déjà à un ouvrage qui prendrait la défense des malheureux. Dans son petit texte intitulé Claude Gueux, daté de 1834, il avait commencé cette croisade en faveur de ceux que le sort pousse au vol et dont la société, les mettant dans une « prison si mal faite », poussent au crime. « Celui qui écrit ce livre esaiera de dire bientôt peut-être de quelle façon il (?) comprend » ces questions « sévères » et « poignantes », écrit-il dans la préface. La rédaction des Misérables, d'abord titré Les Misères, fut entreprise en deux-temps entre lesquels Hugo eut à s'exiler : la période 1845-1848 où il achève les quatre premiers livres et la période 1860-1862 à Guernesey où il réside depuis 1855. Là il écrivit le cinquième livre et augmenta certaines parties des quatre autres ; il fit aussi nombre de modifications car le démocrate de 1860 qu'il était « résolument républicain et anticlérical, n'était plus, politiquement, le même homme que le pair de France de la Monarchie de Juillet. » Reliure uniforme, modeste.

About this Item: Pagnerre, 1862. Couverture rigide. - Pagnerre, Paris 1862, 10 tomes en 10 Vol. in-8 (14,5x23,5cm), reliés. - Edition originale parisienne parue trois jours après celle de Bruxelles. Fausse mention de huitième édition pour les 6 premiers volumes, les 4 derniers, soit les tomes 7 à 10 sans mention aucune. Reliure en demi chagrin maroquinée rouge d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de filets gras et maigres, dorés et à froid. Ensemble bien frais, exempt de rousseurs. Quelques coins émoussés, les autres frottés. 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 (la composition de nôtre exemplaire le montre bien, sans mention et huitième pour les 6 premiers), 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, pour les faire paraître comme des nouvelles éditions. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Parisian first edition published three days after that of Brussels. False mention of eighth edition for the first 6 volumes, the last 4, ie volumes 7 to 10 without any mention. Binding semi morbid red morocco contemporary. Back with nerves adorned with fat and lean, golden and cold fillets. Together fresh, freckles. Nice series pleasantly connected. In order to make a point on the various judgments of the bibliographers: While Vicaire indicates that the French edition is the true original, Clouzot affirming that the two are original, it must be specified that the Belgian edition was published three days before (the 31 March for Brussels and April 3 for Paris), but the truth is not a story of date. Lacroix is the publisher of Hugo, Pagnerre is only the depository in Paris, which explains the presence of the name of Lacroix behind the false title, together with that of Lacroix. It is also known that the work was to appear in all major capitals at the same time, which happened in a few days. For the question of the mentions, this is probably quite simple: for commercial reasons of cost we proceeded to a single draw, some with mentions, others not, in order to distribute them during the year as if each time it was new editions. We understand Clouzot saying that an edition without mention is more desirable, because it seems to have been earlier, but in fact, and to sell, when the title pages without mention have been exhausted we sold in the disorder these pages of titles with mention or not, and very often copies were made bearing various mentions (the composition of our copy shows it well, without mention and eighth for the first 6), it is however true that the copies without mention were the first put in sale, and that editions with mention have title pages in red and black, to make them appear.

About this Item: Paris, Pagnerre, 1862. 10 vol. in-8, demi-chagrin violet , dos à nerfs ornés de filets et fleurons dorés, titre doré (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale ; exemplaire de première émission, sans aucune mention d'édition. Victor Hugo eut dès 1830 le projet d'écrire cette fresque monumentale ; le plan n'en était pas établis, ni les personnages définis mais il pensait déjà à un ouvrage qui prendrait la défense des malheureux. Dans son petit texte intitulé Claude Gueux, daté de 1834, il avait commencé cette croisade en faveur de ceux que le sort pousse au vol et dont la société, les mettant dans une « prison si mal faite », poussent au crime. « Celui qui écrit ce livre esaiera de dire bientôt peut-être de quelle façon il (?) comprend » ces questions « sévères » et « poignantes », écrit-il dans la préface. La rédaction des Misérables, d'abord titré Les Misères, fut entreprise en deux-temps entre lesquels Hugo eut à s'exiler : la période 1845-1848 où il achève les quatre premiers livres et la période 1860-1862 à Guernesey où il réside depuis 1855. Là il écrivit le cinquième livre et augmenta certaines parties des quatre autres ; il fit aussi nombre de modifications car le démocrate de 1860 qu'il était « résolument républicain et anticlérical, n'était plus, politiquement, le même homme que le pair de France de la Monarchie de Juillet. » Bel exemplaire en reliure du temps et, pour tous les volumes, du premier tirage, sans aucune mention d'édition, condition des plus rares.

About this Item: New York: Carleton, 1862. First Edition in English. The first edition in English of Hugo's magisterial work, published in five volumes. The biography by his wife Adele Hugo, was issued in 1863 as a companion volume, because -- as the publisher's note observes -- "the Great Romance is a part of the life of Victor Hugo and cannot be fully understood without it." All six volumes are translated by Charles Edwin Wilbour. Although uniform in design, the volumes are bound in different colors -- nineteenth-century publishers were generally haphazard about such matters. Volumes I and II are in terracotta cloth, volume III is in green, volumes IV and V are in dark brown. The life of Hugo is in light brown cloth. The condition of volumes I to IV is generally very good or better, with some wear especially to the corners. Volume V is in lesser condition, with surface wear to the cloth, and loss to the front gutter. The faults of Volume V are mitigated by its extraordinary provenance: the book bears an inscription on the front free endpaper from Union cavalry commander Colonel George Eliphaz Spencer (1836-1893) to his wife, Bella Z. Spencer (1840-1867), who appended her ownership signature to the first blank. Mrs. Spencer was the author of TRIED AND TRUE, OR, LOVE AND LOYALTY, A STORY OF THE GREAT REBELLION (1866), and other works based on her experiences as a soldier's wife. Her first book was inspired by meeting Southern refugees while accompanying her husband on campaigns in Tennessee and Alabama, at Paducah and the battle of Shiloh. As she wrote, "Sickness, want, even starvation came upon [the Refugees], when the hand of humanity was withheld. They were compelled to leave their homes, and wander friendless through the land." One imagines that Jean Valjean's struggles to maintain his humanity in a brutal and violent world must have held a special resonance for those who, like the Spencers, read Hugo amid the devastation of the Civil War. In all, a very appealing set of this literary and cultural landmark. Seller Inventory # 17673

About this Item: Carleton, Publisher, New York, 1862. First American edition and first edition in English of Victor Hugo's masterpiece. Complete in five large 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 condition with light rubbing. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell box. Uncommon in this condition. 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.
