Dated 1879, to "le directeur" of a publishing firm. Inquiring about the status of the proofs of his "Bourget", which he sent many weeks ago and fears, since he has heard nothing, may be lost. Also, giving him a heads up that "a new book is appearing, upon a new series of letters between Mme (George) Sand and (Alfred de) Musset....unknown to the public and confided by Musset's surviving sister to the editor of the book....and I think this new publication would afford an excellent occasion for portraiting (some of) the romantiques." Yetta Blaze de Bury (d. 1902) was a literary historian and man of letters. His "French Literature of Today", containing a chapter on Bourget, was published by Houghton, Mifflin, the probable destination of this letter, in 1898, and seems to have been the first edition. One sheet folded to make four pages, all are used, about 250 words, entirely in English. In Very Good condition.
