Description

FIRST EDITION of the poet's most famous collection.

One of the first anti-bonapartist works whose style "amazing verse like no one else will ever do again." Victor Hugo asked.

TRUFFED EXAMPLE of two autograph letters signed by Auguste Barbier:

- A signed autograph letter addressed to HetzelIn 1846, Jules Hetzel published an in-8 leaflet on the correction of the Satire in verse entitled L'indifférence, published by Jules Hetzel in 1846 in the second volume of Le Diable à Paris:

"My Dear Sir
I'm sorry if I bore you with a second letter. I forgot to make a correction on the copy I gave you of this line:
no, if we no longer have the desire for the sublime.
I'd like to put:
no, if we no longer have an appetite for the sublime.
It seems more energetic to me. Besides, I'm reporting to you. You can wear or leave whatever you like.
Your most devoted servant.
Auguste Barbier."

- A signed autograph letter addressed to the painter Jules-Claude Ziegler (1804-1956), concerning a dinner given at the home of Auguste Barbier's mother.

Newspaper clippings are mounted as a result, including Literary curiosities, Judgement of Auguste Barbier on the poet of his time.
