Notre-Dame de Paris [The Hunchback of Notre-Dame]. (Two-Volume set in glassine wraps and custom clamshell slipcase) by Victor Hugo illustrated and signed by Frans Masereel. DESCRIPTION : An early Limited Editions Club title (number 13, in the second series), bound in the French style without integral hardcovers and in a new custom clamshell slipcase created by G'Jim of Wyoming Mercantile. The lack of covers generated criticism for the publisher, who responded by rebinding many copies in hardcover. With woodcut illustrations by Frans Masereel, translated from the French by Jessie Haynes and an introduction by Andrew Lang. Number 1305 of a limited edition of 1500 copies and signed on the limitation page by artist Frans Masereel. This work is commonly known as'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame'. A two volume set, each wrapped in original glassine papers. Printed and bound in Paris by R. Coulouma and printed on rich Velin d'Arches papers. Slipcase in natural linen and light grey fabric with black titling on silver spine label. The glassine wrappers are yellowed and with some tearing (especially on volume two). Many pages are unopened (not severed by the knife from adjoining leaves). The volumes themselves are bright and firm and without markings or soilings.

Overall, a lovely addition to the collector's shelf. CONDITION : Book: Very Good+ Dust Jacket: none. CITY, PUBLISHER, YEAR : Paris: The Limited Editions Club, 1930 SIZE and PAGINATION : Small 4to 9 to 11 in. Tall xxix, 309, 377 pages. NOTE: PLEASE SEE PHOTO(S) AT UPPER LEFT OF THIS LISTING...

A NOTE ABOUT USED BOOKS AND CONDITION VALUES. I rate books and dust jackets on a scale from AS NEW to POOR, as follows: AS NEW - Used when the book or dust jacket is in the same immaculate condition as when it was published, with no defects. FINE - Approaches the condition of AS NEW, but lacking the crispness of a new book.

These books or dust jackets should have no defects. NEAR FINE - Approaching FINE but with slight flaws. VERY GOOD - Describes a book or dust jacket that does show some small signs of wear or slight damage. GOOD - Describes the average used worn book or jacket that has flaws and/or damages.

An old bookseller said it best,'In rare books, Good ain't Good'. FAIR - Worn book or jacket that is stained, has loose pages, tears, or otherwise has some sort of significant damage or other issue.

POOR - Describes a book that is worn, damaged, stained or otherwise beat-up, making it useful as a reading copy but possibly not a collector copy. A POOR dust jacket is likely heavily torn, chipped or otherwise damaged. A' +' or a' -' can indicate a shading of these values...
