Scope and content

These files consist of typed and handwritten transcriptions of letters, photocopies of handwritten letters, cartes
de visites and photocopies of some published items (from catalogs like Lettres & Manuscrits Autographes and
Hôtel Drouot) sent to Émile Zola, with dates spanning the 1860s through to 1902. The files within are
organized alphabetically, with recurring correspondents possessing their own files. The original box label
stated that these letters were obtained from “Other Collections,” which refers to smaller collections like
Collection Mitterand and Collection Labodens, as well as from catalogs.
