About this Item: Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Ce, Bruxelles, 1862. Scarce first printing of this classic work of literature, published in Brussels on the 30th or 31st March 1862. Large octavos, contemporary calf, gilt decorated compartments to the spine, red and green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. The question of priority has been intensely debated in bibliographic circles for years. The findings of Michaux and Lacretelle definitively established primacy of this edition over the one distributed four or five days later in Paris by Pagnerre. The initial confusion stemmed from two sources: first was the prominent appearance of Pagnerre's name--and none other--in the French edition as a "Libraire-editeur," when in fact he was a distributing agent only; second was general acceptance of Vicaire's claim that Hugo corrected only from the proofs for the French edition. Michaux postulated that Hugo used the Belgian editions of his works as models for the Parisian printings. To ensure publication in France, Hugo was forced to amputate certain phrases from Les Miserables that would have offended the French censor. Lacretelle later confirmed Michaux's hypothesis. With the bookplates of Witley Court. Witley Court in Worcestershire, England is an Italianate mansion that was built for the Foleys in the seventeenth century on the site of a former manor house, it was enormously expanded in the early nineteenth century by the architect John Nash. Subsequently sold to the Earls of Dudley, a second massive reconstruction by the architect Samuel Daukes took place in the mid nineteenth century, creating one of the great pleasure palaces of Victorian and Edwardian England and contained a large library. Volume IV is the First Paris Edition. The "Septieme" Edition" on the title page was spurious and meant to help boost sales. Rare and desirable with noted provenance. 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 Miserables 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 Miserables, solidifying Hugo's epic in second place (behind only Uncle Tom's Cabin) in pre-Civil War American book sales.

About this Item: Carleton, 1862. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. This is the complete 5 volume set of the first edition of Les Miserables published in America. The set is in very nice condition and in the original bindings, though Fantine does show wear and sunning to the spine and a hint of foxing to a small portion of the textblock with slight separation at the front hinge. There is some light rubbing to the tops and bottoms of some of the spines, with Cosette having the worst of the rubbing and there being a slight separation of the cloth from the bottom of the spine. The bindings are solid and the hinges are attached on each volume. I find minimal foxing and clean textblocks in each. Printed by Carleton of New York in 1862, this is the first American edition of Les Miserables and the first English translation period. It was one of the great works in French and perhaps the greatest musical ever created. First American edition and first edition in English of Victor Hugo's masterpiece. Complete in five large octavo volumes bound in the original brown book cloth. Fantine (171 pages plus four-page publisher's advertisement) is in inferior condition compared to the other volumes, with a hint of sunning to the cloth, a hint of separation at the front hinge at the title page, Cosette (164 pages plus four-page publisher's advertisement) is in solid condition but does have a small sliver of the book cloth measuring a little over an inch which is present but hanging from the bottom of the spine as shown in the photos, 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. Due to the quality of the bindings these books are very rarely found in the original cloth or 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 Miserables 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 most famous book and his speed in doing so allowed the first American edition to be published within months of its French release, leading to massive sales after a well funded advertising campaign. As a result, Les Miserables, became the second best selling work (behind only Uncle Tom's Cabin) in pre-Civil War American book sales. Seller Inventory # 016544

About this Item: A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Cie, 1862. Couverture rigide. - A. Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Cie, Bruxelles 1862, Fort in-8 (14,5x23cm), 10 tomes en 5 volumes reliés. - Véritable édition originale parue quelques jours avant celle de Paris, sans mention d'édition, ce qui est rare. Elle diffère quelque peu de l'édition parisienne, notamment par ses pages de titres en noir, et ses tables établies en 5 parties, détaillant deux tomes, ce qui peut orienter le relieur comme ici à relier l'ensemble en 5 livres et non en dix. Reliures en demi maroquin chocolat d'époque. Dos à 4 nerfs ornés de roulettes en queue et tête, de double filet dorés sur les nerfs, et de filets à froid entre les nerfs. Légères traces de frottement. Une rayure au dernier caisson du tome 3-4. Plats frottés. Brunissures éparses, notamment au début de chaque tome, puis plus rares sur l'ensemble. Une bordure en partie dénudée sur le plat supérieur du dernier tome. Une signature sur quelques faux-titres. Bel exemplaire en demi maroquin d'époque. On affirmait autrefois que l'édition de Paris avait été censurée et qu'elle différait de l'édition belge ; on sait aujourd'hui qu'il n'en est rien, et que c'est Hugo qui a lui-même diffusé ces bruits ne pouvant croire qu'à Paris, certains passages ne seraient pas ôtés. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition published a few days before that of Paris, without edition statement. It differs somewhat from the Paris edition, including its pages in black titles, and tables established 5 parts, detailing two volumes, which can guide the bookbinder here as to link all 5 books and not ten. Binders half morocco chocolate contemporary. Back to 4 nerves decorated with wheels and tail head, double gold thread on the nerves, and blind fillets between nerves. Slight traces of friction. A scratch the last box of volume 3-4. rubbed flat. Brunissures scattered, especially at the beginning of each volume and more rare on the whole. Beautiful copy in half morocco contemporary.

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], A. Faucheur et C. Danelle, [post 1862]. 25 pl., reliure bradel pleine percaline verte, plat sup. titré, tranches dorées. Les 25 dessins originaux ici photographiés sont signés, datés et collés sur papier blanc fort avec mention du nom du personnage, nom des éditeurs et reproduction de la signature de l'artiste sur la droite. Jean Valjean, Fantine, Javert, les Thénardier, Valjean vieux avec Cosette, Gavroche, la mort de Valjean, etc. font partie du choix de cet album.Gustave Brion (1824-1877), peintre, photographe et admirateur de l'oeuvre de Hugo, fut un des plus célèbres illustrateurs. Il donna véritablement vie aux personnages des Misérables. Quelque peu méfiant au départ de ce qui demeure pour lui une interprétation, Victor Hugo sera finalementtrès heureux de pouvoir voir ses héros « (Hauteville House, 20 mai 1862) : vos dessins, Monsieur, sont excellents. Trois sont des chefs d'oeuvre, l'évèque, le conventionnel, Jean Valjean, le rêve de Fantine est charmant: peut être auriez vous pu tricher un peu pour le costume. La face de Javert est risible; mon obser vation se porte également sur le costume. Javert est au dessus (); il est inspecteur; son costume est () comme sa conscience est irréprochable. Je vous communique, Monsieur, mon impression tout entière et en terminant je la résume comme j'ai commencé; vos dessins sont excellents. Recevez, Monsieur, tous mes remerciements les plus sympathiques Victor Hugo». Quelques 25 dessins de Gustave Brion seront gravés, photographiés et publiés en album chez Lacroix, Verboechkoven & Cie.
