'So long as there shall exist, by virtue of law and custom, decrees of damnation pronounced by society, artificially creating hells amid the civilisation of earth, and adding the element of human fate to divine destiny; so long as the three great problems of the century - the degradation of man through pauperism, the corruption of women through hunger, the crippling of children through lack of light - are unsolved; so long as social asphyxia is possible in any part of the world...books of the nature of Les Misérables cannot fail to be of use.' - Hauteville House, 1862. 908 gilt edge pages with golden satin bookmarker.
