Autograph letters- J. K. Huysmans

  • Autograph letter (seemingly) by J.K. Huysmans to «Mons. Arnoud», dated «Vendredi 21 Xbre» Huysmans offers a copy of his novel À Vau l’eau to Arnoud.
  • Autograph letter from J.K. Huysmans to J.H. Rosny – with envelope, stamped from Toulon, July 21, 1891 (according to the Paris stamp at the back of the envelope) – the envelope bears the address of Alphonse Lemerre, Rosny’s publisher. Huysmans talks about Le Termite, a gallery of literary portraits published by Rosny in 1890. He enjoyed the book but deplores that the portraits of Villiers de l’Isle Adam and Barbey d’Aurevilly may leave something to be desired.
