Victor Hugo - Les Voix intérieures - 1837

First edition of the collection of poems "Les Voix intérieures" by Victor Hugo.
Published by Eugène Renduel in 1837 in octavo format (Clouzot 89).

Copy with good margins in a well made romantic binding, produced in blue glazed full calfskin, spine with 4 raised bands highlighted by gilded triple fillets and two thick blind stamped fillets, lovely gilded fleurons and friezes on the caps. On the covers is a gilded quadruple fillet lined with a blind stamped frieze and a plate with a blind stamped floral motif in the centre, fillets on the cover edges, dentelle inside, marbled edges.

In lovely condition, sound binding, rubbed leather on the caps, joints and cover edges, scratched on the covers. Fresh inside, as often, some scattered foxing.

" Three "voices" give their title to the poetic collection of 1837, "Les Voix intérieures", and weave "the song that responds within us to the song we hear outside us": the voice of history, of the events that make or destroy it; that of nature, in which the writer senses obscure messages; and finally, that of man speaking to the "heart" of man, of the father or brother who has disappeared, of the wife and children who are so close and so far away at the same time.
