0.00 CHF

Victor Hugo's 1856 Les Contemplations was an immense success, selling out its first edition within days. The present work is a facsimile edition of the copy offered by Hugo to his lost daughter’s brother-in-law, Auguste Vacquerie. Vacquerie accompanied Hugo during his exile on the Ile of Jersey, and enriched his copy of Contemplations with 32 photographs taken during their stay, fixing in time this period of Hugo’s life. The edition allows a unique look at Hugo’s work and its interpretation through the text itself and Vacquerie’s consciously placed pictures, as well as an informative postface.
