Les Miserables
Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of one of the world's most influential novels, exquisitely bound and in fine condition. "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, late nineteenth-century three-quarter mottled polished calf, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Ten volumes (complete). Bound with all half-titles. A few minor scuffs to boards; text remarkably clean. A beautiful, fine set.
