Indigo blue marbled leather bound antique book. Victorian poetry book: The Literary Life and Poetical Works of Victor Hugo. English translation, NY Hurst & Co Publishers.

Henry Llewellyn Williams collected and edited this eminently translated collection of Victor Hugo's poetry from 1883. This is a hard cover book with the most wonderful, lightly padded, mottled blue leather cover. The edges of the pages are both red/pink ink dyed, and gilded - the gold is obvious when the book is closed and viewed straight on; the pink more-so when reading through it. 318 lovely matte fiber pages, in good condition with some light inner edge foxing and the odd knock or small mark. The leather cover and cover binding has a lot of wear, expecially along the spine, as can be seen clearly in the photographs. The pages themselves are sill tightly bound and sturdy.

This book measures a little over 7" x 5" and is about an inch and a quarter thick. It is unmarked with its publication date, but historically traceable and unusual with the leather cover. A classic to read, and gorgeous to display and run your hands over.
