HUGO, VICTOR. - GUSTAVE DORÉ-ASSOCIATION.

Marion de Lorme. Drame.

lyn31398

La Haye, G. Vervloet, 1831. Bound uncut w. the orig. front wrapper in a very nice private hcalf w. raised bands and gilt ornamentations on back (Petersen & Petersen). First blank leaf partly pasted on to inside of front wrapper. Apart from a bit of soiling to front wrapper, an excellent copy. ¶ The rare Haag-edition, printed the same year as the first edition (Paris, 1831), which is "importante et rare" (Carteret I:403). "Marion de Lorme" is one of Hugo's early works and the first play to be accepted for production under Hugo's own name. The work portrays the French monarchy - a controversial topic at the time - and due to this portrayel being far from flattering, the work was censored and banned.
Rare with the orig. wrapper and in uncut condition. On the verso of the first blank leaf is a contemporary handwritten inscription, stating that the previous owner (Ch. Deiters) met with Gustave Doré: "Ch. Deiters/ a. Utrecht en Hollande (pour 26 Stuver)/ ee XI Septbr 1833 (Hotel de Bellevue)/ vers les IX heures (au soir) - jaret/ a partir pour Bois et Duv (?); avec/ Gustave D." The book has a very impressive Danish provenance. It has been in the libraries of some of the most important Danish bookcollectors and bears the ex libri of K.F. Plesner, Einar Christiansen, Poul Linneballe and H.P. Rohde.
