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

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. The 1920s saw a revival of the medieval woodcut tradition, with Masereel cited as "the undisputed king" of this revival. He is perhaps best remembered today for his "wordless novels", particularly Mon Livre d'Heures (Passionate Journey). Two volumes, softbound (in the French fashion). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in pink Ingres paper wrappers, set in monotype Bodoni, Arches paper, in a chemise and slipcase, both of grey and tan mottled paper. Limited edition of 1500 copies, this no. 1317, SIGNED BY ILLUSTRATOR; 10" tall; approximately 680 pages. ***CONDITION: The volumes are fine, with most signatures remaining unopened; they are in the original glassine wrappers, also fine. Both volumes are protected by a matching publisher's chemise and slipcase, the chemise with the original paper spine label, the slipcase having recently been professionally restored and is now strong and sturdy, with all original components. ***CITATION: LEC Quarto-Millenary no. 13. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Introduction by Andrew Lang and illustrated with woodcuts by Frans Masereel. George Macy noted that upon reception of their copies, many members felt "cheated because the two volumes were paperbound. We had to bind in hard cases, American fashion, most of the copies." That said, of the approximately two dozen copies we have handled over the years, all but two were in their original paper wrappers, as is this copy. Copy #509 of 1500 copies SIGNED by the artist on the colophon page. Monthly Letter laid in. Very mild soiling to spines; lacking the glassines and chemise. Fine in a close to Fine original slipcase.
