London: Hurst and Blackett, successors to Henry Colburn,, 1862. First authorized edition in English 3 volumes, octavo.

Description:
Bruxelles: Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & Ce, 1862. Scarce first printing of this classic work of literature, published in Brussels on the 30th or 31st March 1862. Large octavos, 10 volumes, bound in contemporary three quarters calf, gilt titles to the spine, morocco spine labels. In near fine 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 grand masterpiece, and he did so very quickly, allowing… Read more
