Estimated collective edition of Victor Hugo's Odes (including the Odes, New Odes, Odes and Ballads), adorned with 3 pretty copper-engraved frontispieces after Devéria.
The "New odes" (1824) & "Odes and ballads" (1826) are in the original edition. Mention of "third edition" for the Odes (bearing the mention of first volume), dated 1825.
Well-established set, period binding executed in khaki half calfskin (back faded turning brown), ribbed spine decorated with gilt irons with fine nets, wheels and fleurons. Marbled slices.
Good copy, bindings of good appearance, caps a little rubbed. Fairly fresh interiors, light foxing and small waterstaining on the margins of the pages of volume 2 (not serious). Good condition.
