- A.l.s. with envelope from Émile Zola to Hector Giacomelli (1822-1904), Médan, 7 October 1890, 1 p.
Zola regrets that he cannot meet with Giacomelli, since he must go to Paris on an errand which cannot be postponed. He suggests that they get together in Paris. A letter which shows well the affectionate relationship between the two men.
Hector Giacomelli was a painter and engraver who illustrated a great number of important French and English works of the time, including works by Michelet, Musset and Gustave Doré’s famous illustrated Bible. Giacomelli and Zola had known each other since 1865, when they were both working for the Hachette publishing firm.
The envelope is stamped and franked, and reads : “Monsieur Giacomellli, chez monsieur Delorme, à Juziers par Gargenville (Seine-et-Oise)”.
