HUGO, Victor

HUGO, Victor Ninety-Three

Sampson Low, Marston Low & Searle, 1874.

First English edition. Original red publisher's cloth titled in gilt to the spine with blind rules and vignettes to the covers. Ownership signature of Margaret Sewell, niece of Anna Sewell to each volume. A fine set, with a little foxing to the preliminaries and light wear at the base of the front hinge of volume three. A superb set.

The author's final novel. Considered to contain some of his best writing, it has been acknowledged by Ayn Rand as a source of inspiration for parts of We The Living.
Possibly a gift from Anna Sewell, author of Black Beauty, to her favourite niece, the inscription on the front endpaper of volume I reads (in Margaret Sewell's hand), "Margaret Sewell from Mrs Sewell Christmas 1874". Margaret (1852-1937) was known to be close to her Aunt after the death of her mother in 1866.
