Victor Hugo is the author of some of the most celebrated works in French literature, including Les Miserables (1862) and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1831).
Victor Hugo signed this 10.7 x 8 inch document while in exile in Jersey in 1852-1855. A staunch republican, he left France when Napoleon III seized power in 1851. The paper is connected with a society of French refugees on the island and is signed by several other names.
Hugo left Jersey for Guernsey in 1855, where he wrote Les Miserables.
Victor Hugo’s autograph is by far the largest and most prominent. He signs in deep blue ink – the “g” of his second name extending in a breathtaking loop. It’s a spectacular specimen and rare in this colour (Hugo tended to use black ink).
