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 handicraft 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 studentand 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 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). Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 180. Vicaire IV, cols. 256-257. HBS 65480. $9,500. Bookseller Inventory # 65480

Hugo’s great novel, set in fifteenth century Paris, achieved immediate success on its first publication in 1831 and established him as the leading historical novelist of his time.

Item Description: Paris, Eugène Renduel, 1836. 1 vol. (220 x 136 mm) de 1 f., 2 ff., 1 front., 631 pp. et 1 f., demi-maroquin à long grain bleu nuit à coins, filet doré, dos lisse orné, titre en long, non rogné (Reliure signée de Victor Champs). La première édition illustrée de Notre-Dame de Paris, dite « édition keepsake ». Rare exemplaire imprimé sur vélin fin. Carteret n?en indique pas le nombre et signale un papier bleu, ?au moins un? et l?habituel exemplaire sur chine - paru sans figures - réservé à Renduel. Elle recèle 12 planches sur chine appliqué, dont le célèbre frontispice. Elle sont toutes ici du premier tirage, dessinées par Louis Boulanger, Alfred et Tony Johannot, Raffet, Rogier et Rouargue, et gravées sur acier par Lacour et les Frères Finden. La 7ème planche est ici bien présente, Carteret indiquant que ?celle-ci est fort rare?? ; elle figure en épreuve avant la lettre. Trois autres gravures, La Cruche cassée, Une nuit de noces et Le Retrait qui dit ses heures Monsieur Louis de France sont en double état (chine et avant la lettre) et Un maladroit ami en double état sur chine, dans une rare épreuve volante, jamais appliquée. Enfin, l?illustration est enrichie d?une figure pour le chapitre Paris à vol d?oiseau : elle représente une large vue de la cité parisienne, sur laquelle se détache la cathédrale Notre-Dame. Elle est l?oeuvre de François-Alexandre Pernot, qui donnera plusieurs albums de dessins dont un recueil intitulé Le Vieux Paris, reproduction de monuments historiques qui n?existent plus dans la capitale, lithographié par Nousveaux et Asselineau, en 1838. Ce dessin n?y figure pas et pourrait être un dessin non retenu pour cette édition Renduel. Le tirage du livre a été de 2000 exemplaires sur vergé, mis en vente comme livre d?étrennes le 5 décembre 1835, enregistré le 12 décembre dans la Bibliographie de la France ; Théophile Gautier en rédigea le prospectus à parution le 27 octobre précédent. Les exemplaires sur vélin fin doivent être au nombre de quelques unités ; Carteret n?en répertorie aucun, pas plus qu?Escoffier. Seul le bulletin Morgand (n° 1431) en propose un exemplaire, dans un cartonnage de Belz-Niédrée : c?est le seul que nous avons pu trouvé dans les bibliographies, celui-ci cité par Vicaire étant celui de Morgand. Clouzot indique lui ?quelques exemplaires sur vélin fin?, sans référence particulière. Notre exemplaire provient de la bibliothèque Jean Meyer, avec exlibris (vente I, 1996, n° 132). Il a été parfaitement relié par Champs et a gardé une grandeur de marges exceptionnelle - sans doute les exemplaires sur vélin étaient-ils d?ailleurs plus grands dès l?origine que les exemplaires sur vergé. Brivois mentionnant : La présente édition parut au commencement du mois de décembre 1835, tandis que "l?édition en 3 vol. n?a été terminée que dans les premiers mois de 1836??

Frans Masereel (1889-1972) is considered one of the most famous Flemish woodcut artists of his time, and can be counted as one of the fathers of the modern graphic novel.

He is perhaps best remembered today for his "wordless novels", particularly Mon Livre d'Heures (Passionate Journey).
