OF

LES MISERABLES.

Extract of Letter from VICTOR HUGO to MR. WRAXALL.

"From the moment when M. Esquiros is your friend, as he is mine, you can not fail to produce an excellent work, having for guide and counselor that great and noble mind.

(Signed)   VICTOR HUGO."

John Forster, the ablest critic in England—the Literary Editor of the London Examiner—in speaking of the AUTHORIZED TRANSLATION, by Wraxall and Esquiros, says: "On the publication of this celebrated Novel, in its original form, we entered very minutely into the story. It only now remains for so to say that we CAN CONSCIENTIOUSLY RECOMMEND IT TO THE PUBLIC AS A PERFECTLY FAITHFUL VERSION—retaining, as nearly as the characteristic difference between the languages admits of, all the spirit and point of the original. IN ITS PRESENT FORM, 'Les Miserables' stands a very fair chance of having as wide a sale as the French edition."

The Authorized Edition,

Complete in One Volume, with Portraits and Biographical Sketch, is published for ONE DOLLAR, in Paper; or, ONE DOLLAR AND A HALF, in Muslin. NOW READY, and all orders filled from this day without delay.

Two million bottles can easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth, and prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described. Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers throughout the world. D. S. BARNES & CO., New York.
