"Ever since its publication in 1862, Les Miserables has remained one of the most widely read novels in the world... Indeed, its appearance was a unique phenomenon in the history of publishing, by the scope of its success among the elite as well as the people, national as well as international, with general readers as well as critics. In addition, dozens of film version- from France, the United States, Italy, Egypt, India, Japan, and the Soviet Union- have perpetuated the legendary quality of the book... Perhaps more than any other work of literature, Victor Hugo's novel has flourished as part of our international consciousness" (Kathryn M. Grossman, Hugo's Romantic Sublime). Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie, 1862. Octavo, original purple cloth. Ten volumes. Some foxing to first and last few leaves of each volumes (as usual), otherwise text very clean; cloth spines faded to tan, a few stray scratches to boards.

        Le Jardin Fruitier du Muséum ou iconographie de toutes les espèces et variétés d'arbres fruitier cultivés dans cet établissement, avec leur description, leur histoire, leur synonymie.

      Paris, F. Didot, 1862-1875. 9 volumes. Folio (295 x 212mm). With 508 (almost all) colour-printed engraved- or chromolithographed plates finished by hand. Contemporary red half calf, gilt ornamented spines (ends of spine a bit chipped, one hinge splitting) . Nissen BBI, 456; not listed by Dunthorne and Pritzel. Extremely rare iconographie on fruit with superb large plates, of which the first 6 volumes depict pears, volume VII peaches, volume VIII peaches (remaining part), prunes and apricots, and the last volume strawberries and currants. The colour-printed engraved illustrations are signed: A. Riocreux del. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc., and the chromolithographed ones: A. Riocreux del., G. Severyns, chromolit. Brux. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc. "The most sensitive and skilful French botanical artist of the period was Alfred Riocreux (1820-1912), who may be considered the Paris counterpart of Walter Hood Fitch ... Trained by his father, the boy progressed so rapidly with drawing and painting that the sketches which he made at the age of thirteen were considered worth preserving at Sèvres. The botanist Adolphe Théodore Brongniart (1801-76), whose father had also been employed at Sèvres, directed the attention of the young Riocreux to botany and was probably also responsible for bringing him to the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. Here the young artist met Joseph Decaisne (1807-82), for whose superb 'Le Jardin Fruitier du Muséum' ... he made the drawings ..." (Blunt, pp. 229-230). G. Severyns, being responsible for the excellent chromolithographs in the above work, was the most gifted and most prominent lithographer of Belgium in the 19th century, who started his firm already in 1829 and remained the leading printing-establishment for nearly a whole century. Apart from light foxing to some of the plates a fine complete set.

The Emancipation Proclamation declared freedom for all slaves in any Confederate state that didnâ??t return to the Union by January 1, 1863. Although this executive order did not actually free a large number of slaves, it set the stage for the freedom of all slaves. Coverage of the Emancipation in this newspaper begins in the middle of the first page. This newspaper article represents important coverage of a very significant event in American History. archivesgov/exhibts/emancipation.
