Scope and content

  1. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Ernest Hamm (1852-?), Médan, 15 December 1878, 1 p.
    Zola writes to Ernest Hamm, a journalist with the Progrès de la Charente-Inférieure, to thank him for his article on Zola’s Théâtre, a collection of the texts of Zola’s plays Bouton de rose, Thérèse Raquin and Les Héritiers Rabourdin, which had appeared in September 1878. Zola apologizes to Hamm for not being able to send him copies of his novels, since he is not in Paris, but suggests that Hamm contact Zola’s editor (Georges Charpentier), who is in charge of distributing Zola’s novels to members of the press.
    Published in Correspondance, vol. X, p. 465 (letter S43).
