Scope and content

  1. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to René d’Hubert (1855-1927), Paris, 30 January 1891, 1p.
    Zola is going to spend a few days in Médan, so he asks d’Hubert to stop sending him the proofs of L’Argent (the 18th novel in the 20-volume Rougon-Macquart series), which was appearing in serialized form in the Gil Blas, of which d’Hubert was, at the time, the director. Zola adds that he is sending along a note (not included), in which he indicates the point in the text where he wishes each installment to end, an interesting indication of the interest and care which Zola took in the newspaper publications of his novels.
    René d’Hubert began as the director of the Gil Blas, a major Paris daily, in 1886, and remained there until 1891. Zola’s novel appeared in the Gil Blas from 29 November 1890 to 3 March 1891.
    Published in Correspondance, vol. VII, page 118 (letter 56).
