A Book Published by The Grand Colosseum Warehouse Company, Glasgow: “Select Poems and Tragedies”, by Victor Hugo

One of the books I inherited from my parents, is Select Poems and Tragedies, by Victor Hugo. This particular edition is undated,

but what really attracted my interest is the publisher: The Grand Colosseum Warehouse Co.


In December 2022, I started to undertake research into the history of the company’s move into publishing books, and various

entries on this site will provide more information.
