VERLAINE PAUL (1844-1896)
Cellulairement, autograph manuscript of 32 poems, with an unpublished autograph letter from Verlaine to Sivry illustrated with an ORIGINAL DRAWING
Brussels, Mons, 1873-1875. 32 autograph handwritten poems by Paul Verlaine on 69 small in-4 pages numbered by him from 1 to 75 on blue-striped school paper (each page is striped with 22 lines). Sometimes Verlaine cut out a part of the page by reworking his text (one half of page 18, to which is added a part of another page; and of page 31; page 36, where two parts are cut out to remove two stanzas). Pages 19, 20, 32-34 are missing; we go directly from page 42 to page 45 with Verlaine's hand (''suite à 42 PV''). All mounted on tabs. Full morocco taupe, back with nerves titled gold, lining decorated with bottle green morocco, moiré guards, slipcase (Marius Michel).
