Scope and content

  • Autograph letter from Georges Ancey to [?], dated «Paris, 7 février 1897» Is answering to a question about the Théâtre Libre [TL]. The TL launched a generation of new playwrights. Antoine influenced comedians as well [letter is barely legible].
  • Typed transcription of the letter from Georges Ancey to [?], dated «Paris, 7 février 1897», 2 copies.
  • Autograph letter from Georges Ancey to [?], dated «Kerbon, 7 août 1897» Is in Britanny – goes cycling in the morning, reads and works in the afternoons. Is currently writing three plays. Does not really believe in «mise en scène» -- too often, directors are preoccupied with the decors, not the play. [The rest of the letter is barely legible.]
  • Autograph letter from L. Level [Ancey’s daughter] to J. Sanders, dated «8 décembre 1949», with envelope stamped «Paris 9-12 1949». Answers J. Sanders’ questions regarding her father, his plays, his career, etc. Is sending various documents to Sanders, asking that they remain unpublished – her father would not have liked them made public as they are unfinished. With handwritten transcription by J. Sanders.
  • Transcription of a second letter from L. Level (no original in the file) to Sanders, dated «27 juillet 1949», in which she gives information about Ancey’s ancestors.
  • Handwritten biographical document about Ancey written by his daughter, dated «30 avril 1949» (with transcription by J. Sanders)
  • Autograph postcard [Nantouillet Presles, S.O], from L. Level to J. Sanders, n.d. Would like Sanders to autograph the copy of his thesis – she enjoyed reading it.
