ARCHIVE OF 2 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED (ALSs)

1853 & 1868. Letter. Two one-page handwritten letters, both in French, dated 27 November 1853 and 29 February 1868, on 5-1/4" x 8-1/4" sheets of paper, each addressed simply to "Monsieur." Jules de Goncourt published books together with his brother Edmond. Letters by Edmond are plentiful, but due to Jules's death at the age of 39 of a stroke brought on by syphilis, his letters are rather scarce on the market. The Prix Goncourt, the most prestigious prize in French language literature, is named for them. Creases from folding. Near Fine. Item #020111

Price: $250.00
