Samuel de Sacy avec Notre-Dame de Paris : Une anthologie
Originally published in 1831, this early novel is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Written by Victor Hugo, this famous tale of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in classic literature. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
