This new edition, the first to be illustrated, verified and corrected by Hugo himself, was to have only 12 volumes, but a second part to volume 9 was printed after volume 12, this is why volume 13 has no volume number.
Then the 3 volumes of Le Rhin published later in 1846 were added.
This set has the particularities of offering 2 editions of Ruy Blas, most copies offer Volume 9 without and in 449 pages, similarly, a printing error gives the frontispiece “Les Deux Archers” twice, while the frontispiece for Volume 1 should be a portrait of Hugo.

Headcaps, joints, boards in good condition, blunt corners. Good contemporary bindings.
Foxing and pale dampstains, sometimes more pronounced, sometimes without - see photos.
