7. Louis Ferdinand Destouches, dit Céline (Courbevole, 1894 - Meudon, 1961)
Autograph letter signed, dated “Le 4 Août [Klarksovgaard, 1948]” by the French writer. Céline does not
appreciate either the content or the form of the laborious pamphlets and letters of his correspondent
Charles Deshayes, which he is very circumspect with, undoubtedly out of interest : “…Je trouve votre
opuscule joliment bien troussé et justicier à souhait…” . He is also wary of his often untimely initiatives and
explains why it is preferable not to provoke this”…charogne…” of Charbonnière [Guy de Girard de
Charbonnières (1907-1990)] ambassador who is one of his pet peeves : “…– Mais attention – biaisez en ce
qui concerne Charbonnière, sale petit charogne antillaise qui cité nommément, trop heureux de l’occasion, sauterait aux
Aff. Etrangères danoises se déclarer insulté et provoqué es qualité diplomatique et me ferait transférer illico à Fresnes –
surtout que ce document de sa main réquisitoire effronté et criminel, je n’aurais jamais dû le connaître – Je ne l’ai eu en
main que par indiscrétion – En principe, c’est la police danoise qui m’a donné la liste de mes prétendus crimes – Vous
saisissez – et cette liste est supposée provenir du Parquet de Paris. Charbonnière… a corsé le dossier, qui de son propre
aveu ne contenait rien – dans la furie de Zèle épurateur… mais si je le cite, il s’estime insulté en tant qu’ambassadeur!
C’est un affaire d’homme à homme à traiter entre lui et moi, plus tard s’il y a un plus tard, mais point sur le plan où
nous sommes… Prisonnier sur parole – Pensez! qui crée des difficultés au ministère desAffaires étrangères du Pays qui
l’héberge…”. Journalist in Lyon, Charles Deshayes, was fond of Céline. With much abnegation and
clumsiness, he had tried to help the exiled writer by providing him with documentation and with
multiple services. In addition, he was eager to help Céline with his pen by sending his opponents
belligerent and provocative libels of very mediocre quality, which sometimes exasperated Céline, who,
depending on his mood, forgot that Deshayes' texts were often the result of his contradictory
instructions. 2 pp. Envelope with autograph address included. In fine condition.
€ 3500

8. François-René de Chateaubriand (Saint-Malo, 1768 - Paris, 1848)
Desirable autograph letter signed “Chateaubriand”, dated “Paris 11 Août 1834” by the French writer,
considered the introducer of the Romanticism in French literature. Addressing to a count,
Chateaubriand expresses his disillusionment with life and politics after the Revolution of 1830 : “…Moi
je suis entre les mains de la Providence, elle dispose de moi. J’ai quitté ma retraite rue d’enfer pour me rapprocher de
quelques vieux et … amis qui me restent. Que deviendra le monde! Dieu le sait : il n’ y a que je suis bien aise de m’en
aller le passé me rend peu curieux de l’avenir…”. An interesting record of Chateaubriand character. 2 pp. and
¼. In fine condition.

20. Claude Monet (Paris, 1840 - Giverny, 1926)
Autograph letter signed “Claude” , dated “Mardi soir [1892 ca.]” by the illustrious French impressionist
painter. By this letter, presumably written to his family as it is simply signed "Claude" and displays a
hurried and impatient handwriting, the painter announces that he has received the message from his
relatives and advises them “… en arrivant [de] prendre une voiture pour arriver plus vite…” because he will be
busy “…s’il fait soleil p.r déjeuner sans me soucier de vous à onze heures devant être au travail à midi jusqu’à deux
heures…”. If the weather is overcast, as he fears, he will wait for them. Then comes what is probably a
reference to the difficulties he was encountering in his work as an artist “…Moins bonne journée
aujourd’hui…”. Monet finally seems to regret being so busy : “…j’aurais été content de vous voir arriver et
pensais à chaque instant vous voir. En hâte, baisers à tous…”. Charming letter written at the time when Monet

(inedito) Febbraio 1903…”. While in Egypt to rehearse his Proserpine who was staged in Alexandria and in
Cairo in 1903, Saint-Saëns inscribes an unpublished alternative version which slightly differs from

humain, sujet a la tentation de varier et chanceler lhors quil donne loysir a l’ennemi de l’attaquer ; et d’autre part, sil
arrivoit que la tentation l’emportast, j’espere qu’elle ne l’emporteroit jamais du tout…”. Then the Bishop adds : “…

qu’elle ne cedera pas enfin…”. Beautiful letter of great spiritual content. 1 p. In fine condition.

27. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (Lyon, 1900 - South of Marseille, 1944)
Precious autograph manuscript (75 lines of almost indecipherable handwriting), undated [1938] by the
French writer and poet. Numerated in front I and II by the writer himself, these two pages are covered
with lines of a small, tightly written and difficult to read, as Saint-Exupery wrote for himself this first
draft manuscript, which he used in chapter VII of his famous collection of autobiographical essays
‘Terre des Hommes’, evoking a series of events in his life, mainly from the time he worked for the
Aéropostale (Air postal service), the central element of this story being his accident with his navigator
André Prévot (1907-1947, mechanic of Saint-Exupery) in the Libyan Sahara in 1935, where the two
men almost died of thirst. As this manuscript is a preparatory draft, it contains many variants
compared to the definitive text, here is an excerpt : “Tel est le désert. Un Coran, qui n’est q’une règle de jeu, en
change de sable en Empire. Au fon d’un Sahara qui serait vide, se joue une pièce secrète, qui remue les passions des
hommes. La vraie vie du désert n’est pas faite exodes de tribus à la recherche d’une herbe à paître, mais du jeu qui s’y joue
encore. Quelle différence de matière entre le sable soumis et l’autre! Et n’en est-il pas ainsi pour tous les hommes? En face
de ce désert transfiguré que me souviens des jeux de mon enfance…”. 2 full pages on thin yellow paper. In fine
condition.
€ 4800

28. Jean-Paul Sartre (Paris, 1905 - ib., 1980)
Important lot of one autograph letter signed and one autograph document dated 17 November 1953
by the French philosopher and writer. After the death of the journalist and former communist minister
Yves Farge (1899-1953), his widow asked the philosopher for a word of sympathy in memory of her
husband. Sartre sends here his original text (probably a first draft, as it contains some deletions and
corrections) where he refers to the former president of the movement as a “…Combattants de la paix et
de la liberté…” as well as the “Congrès de Vienne” where, having seen the action of the “French pacifist”,
he had had the opportunity to know him better : “…du premier coup, il m’a séduit par sa puissance silencieuse,
par la patience du corps et de l’esprit avec laquelle il écoutait les contradicteurs, par l’autorité de ses brèves réponses, qui
révélait la profondeur de ses convictions, et … par la chaude amitié qu’il portait à tous les hommes, par cette confiance …
qu’il témoignait à chacun … il allait de group en groupe … il interrogeait inlassablement les délégués – tous les délégués.
mettant tout le soin dont il était capable à dégager les courants qui brassaient cette grande foule ; il était le lien vivant de
tous avec chacun, il voulait tenir compte de tous nos désirs et s’en faisait l’interprète auprès des autres organisateurs…
nous savions… qu’il était un des principaux artisans de ce Congrès … ce que j’ai admiré le plus en lui : le goût
passionné des contacts et cet amour si vivant, si concret de la Démocratie en acte”. In the letter accompanying the
manuscript, Sartre informed Mrs. Farge that he would unfortunately not be able to go to Austria,
because the adaptation of his play Kean”… passe ce soir en générale et il faut que je sois auprès des acteurs toute le
semaine qui suit…”. He hoped to be freer and wished to have the opportunity to tell her in person of all
his respectful friendship. 2 pp. In fine condition.
€ 3900

find”…notre petite maison de granit…et où il y a toujours un homard de femelle et une paire de soles pour les amis –
avis à ces Dabit…”. He has read L'Ile and is happy that his correspondent has added “…quelques nouvelles
figures de marines à mon répertoire. Vos pêcheurs de L’Ile sont vivants, humains, très particuliers. Ils n’ont rien du moco,
ni du breton…encore moins de ‘marins’ de nos littérateurs faibles chiens de terriers. Je les classe à côte de ceux de

vous les trouverez, rapidement, résumées, dans un article que je prépare pour le Figaro – Il reste donc un peu d’Art pour
