The 1902 Edition of Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback) by Victor Hugo

Part of the Knitlark Lane Podcast is reading from the novel Notre Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo.

I am reading from a book with a copyright 1902. It is part of a series called The French Classical Romances. There are about 15 books that my mom bought at an auction years ago.

The books include The Nabob by Daudet, The Black Tulip by Dumas (pere), Memoirs of Young Brides by Balzac and Madame Bovary by Flaubert. Here is a picture of the title page of the book I am reading in the podcast.

You can click on the pictures and make them bigger.
Here is the link to the podcast if you would like to listen to the novel It is also available (free) on Itunes.

This is the spine of the book -- along with the feet of my cat, Sugar.

Across from the title page, there is a picture of the book's author, Victor Hugo.

Let me know if you are interested in more pictures. It is interesting, isn't it?
