    Description

    Adele Victor Hugo Autograph Note Signed. Two pages, 4" x 5.25", np, July 25. This note is written entirely in French. Adele Hugo was Victor's wife whom he loved passionately all his life, as is evident from many famous and popular love letters. One of which reads in part, "When two souls, which have sought each other for, however long in the throng, have finally found each other...a union fiery and pure as themselves are...begins on earth and continues forever in heaven...This is the love which you inspire in me...your soul is made to love with purity and passion of angels; but perhaps it can only love another angel, in which case I must tremble with apprehension." The letter is in fine condition; usual folds are present. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
