Scope and content

17. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Damase Jouaust (1834-1893), Médan, 1 January 1883, 2 p.
Zola tells Jouaust that he can come to Médan any day he likes, but requests that he come in the afternoon, since Zola needs his mornings to finish the novel he is currently working on (Au bonheur des dames). Jouaust was negotiating with Zola for the publication of a deluxe edition of one of Zola’s earlier novels, Une page d’amour, which appeared in December 1884 in a two-volume set with ten drawings by Edouard Dantan, engraved by A. Duvivier, and was preceded by a foreword by Zola.
Published in Correspondance, vol. IV, p. 365 (letter 289).
