DORÉ (Gustave, 1832-1882, French Illustrator, Etcher and Painter)

Autograph Letter Signed with initials, in French with translation, to ‘My dear Leleux’
saying that he “did not sleep after reading your letter, on the contrary. And to reward you for the pleasure your words have given to me, I send you a copy of an epitaph found in a cemetery in the Vosges department, the beginning of which have just brightened up Lundi society: I respect the document, ‘here lies truly missing lady C.P. wife of Mr S.P.’ This lady born for the trade, at the age of 19 before her marriage alone holding the part of the draperies. Shortly after, she brought together other branches which stopped with her, her work occupying her night and day, her desires to acquire the esteem and confidence of everyone by her behaviour. His life was courageous in his travels, firm in his projects, bold in his expeditions, but too sensitive to aggravating circumstances. Her life was cut short and she ended her career on June 6, 1822 without having made any mistake in her life. That’s all! With much respect and friendship around you...”, 2 sides 8vo.,

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to Dennis WHEATLEY (1897-1977, Novelist) thanking him for his letter “Hutchinson’s sent the MS back less than a week ago, without even a covering letter, having scribbled all over it in pencil (though I suspect that covering letter was merely omitted in error, for there was a functionless clip on the cover. If you think another publisher would ‘bite’ at the MS as it is, it would be angelic of you to try it on them. I am too bored with it now to tinker with it any more & should simply like to get of out & off my chest. The Express are now of their own accord toying with the idea of bringing out a book of reprinted Hickey. This might of course include the New York section, but in some ways I would rather an ordinary publisher did it; they might pay me a £ or two and would probably print it better...”, 2 sides 4to., Renishaw Hall, Derbyshire headed paper with a fine vignette at the head, Sunday, no date together with a carbon copy of Wheatley’s reply apologising for his late reply as “the Voroshilov book ran out to 120,000 words - nearly double the length that I originally intended,... If you will send me your M.S. I will try it on other publishers with pleasure. Collins, Arthur Barker, Harrap, Robert Hale, Michael Joseph, Chatto, Iver Nicholson are the ones I know best. Who would you prefer me to try it on Arthur Barker is a good man and likes things that are a bit out of the ordinary...”, 1 side A4, no place, 19th August
