ONE OF THE 25 FIRST COPIES ON JAPAN, containing 3 states of the engravings, including the pure etching. A superb copy, in an elegant contemporary binding by Cuzin père, to which we have added : 1) A beautiful l.a.s. to a colleague (Paris, April 15, 1878, one page in-8). Sending this colleague his new novel "Une Page d'Amour" (A Page of Love), Zola, who defends himself against being "an Impassible", adds this comment: "Emotion must come out of itself in a literary work. There's no need for an author to cry to make people cry. The oh! and the ah! add nothing to the tenderizing force of a book... in the end, I'm honored to be an enthusiast". 2) A magnificent signed autograph (one page in-8 on japon), excerpt from one of his novels. From the A. Vautier library (bookplate).
