  •  with "Les Miserables", in all likelihood..... (7+ / 0-) read the Charles Wilbour translation, if it was the Modern Library printing, for example.  The Signet Classics version that I'm reading is a revised version of the Wilbour translation.  With the new movie, there are new hardback and fresh paperback printings now out.  But I lucked out and got a full version at the favorite used book emporium a while back.
