Manon, to a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille after Antoine-François Prévost's novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut (1731), was first performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) on January 19, 1884.The passage from which Massenet has quoted is printed on p. 94 (measures 4 and 5) of the present score. ". In Manon herself Massenet created a portrait of the eternal feminine to rank with Mélisande and Lulu, and it is on this that the opera's appeal rests. In the final analysis Manon is by way of being a ?highlights' opera, lacking the cohesion and economy of more mature Massenet works, but those highlights were seldom surpassed in the composer's oeuvre."

        La Damnation de Pierrot. Opéra fantastique en trois actes.

      Dédicace datée du 30 décembre 1884 à Fécamp. Préceux manuscrit autographe complet de 18 feuillets in-4, écrits au verso seul, à l'encre rouge et noire, dans un encadrement de filet rouge, le reste est vierge (environ 90 ff.). Reliure de l'époque en cuir de Russie brun-rouge, triple filet à froid, petite dentelle intérieure (qqs lég. rouss.). Premier acte et seul paru d'une comédie en vers, se déroulant dans un parc à la tombée de la nuit, sur fond de mouvement d'une foule révolutionnaire. Ce texte fut publié dans le mensuel la Revue moderniste, du 12 décembre 1885, et dans le recueil de poésies Griseries, paru chez Tresse et Stock en 1887. Le manuscrit est soigneusement calligraphié en rouge et en noir sur le recto des feuillets réglés en rouge. Il présente des VARIANTES avec le texte définitif. Dans le décor d'un jardin Louis XVI, au clair de lune, Jean Lorrain met en scène le charmant Pierrot, et l'inquiétant Homme en noir ; on entend des chants lointains du Peuple, et on a une vision sanglante d'une Cydalise livide et d'un Léandre trépassé : « Horreur ! leur cou branlant sur les épaules bouge. A ses joyaux mêlé quel est ce collier rouge Qui coule sur sa gorge » L'Homme noir invite alors Pierrot, effondré, à quitter « quatre vingt treize » pour se rendre « au Présent, à Paris ! » Madame Camille Block, à qui Jean Lorrain a offert son début d'opéra, est l'épouse de l'éditeur parisien qui travailla avec Jules Meynial pour le théâtre. *

Printed on 44 different kinds of paper & in many colors.

Marchand, 1884]. First edition, and a magnificently bound copy of this tour-de-force of book- and papermaking, limited to 250 numbered copies, signed by the author and the publisher. Originally issued in separate fascicles, this is a remarkable, complex, and beautiful book, printed on 44 different kinds of paper and employing complex combinations of color and printing techniques. The book was issued to demonstrate the newest techniques of printing and styles of book design. The first three sections contain essays on the history of paper, ink, and the use of color in printing. This third part is particularly dazzling as each typographical border of every page has been printed using different color combinations to demonstrate the contrasts and harmonies of combining colors. The second part - "Applications" - is printed on various kinds of tinted paper (mostly coming from various named French mills but including a few Dutch and English mills), all printed and decorated employing flamboyant combinations of types and ink colors. Eleven original samples of rare papers, from ancient papyrus to modern Japanese, are tipped-in at end. Rochas d'Aiglun (1837-1914), was a leading French parapsychologist, historian, translator, writer, military engineer, and administrator. He wrote important works on military engineering history, ancient technology, hydraulic organs, water clocks, ancient surveying instruments, temple machinery, Greek artillery, and ancient railways. This copy contains a presentation inscription from Rochas to Gaston Tissandier (1843-99), the French chemist, meteorologist, aviator, and editor, on the added portrait of Rochas. This portrait has been especially inserted and is not present in most copies. Very fine copy preserved in the original chemise and slipcase.

The book essentially is a detailed description of the weapon which, with minor improvements, became the standard field piece for many armies. Hotchkiss et Cie. was founded by American engineer Benjamin B. Hotchkiss in 1867, with a factory in Rodez, France and later in Saint-Denis, outisde Paris. The company prospered during the Franco-Prussian War and from later sales to the US government (Hotchkiss artillery was employed at Wounded Knee). By the turn of the century, Hotchkiss et Cie expanded into an automobile business. This volume, written by the company's chairman, was intended for market purposes. (OCLC locates only 3 copies in the United States: at the NYPL, the US Navy and Princeton).

      München, 19. Mai - 14. August 1884. Druck auf verschiedenfarbigen Papieren; einige Plakate mit Holzschnitt-Illustration. Jeweils gefaltet. HLwd. d. Zt. 42 x 23 cm.

        Lettre autographe signée. Avignon, 5. XI. 1884.

      1884. 4p in-8 (75 lignes), en-tête J Roumanille libraire éditeur. Longue et belle lettre annonçant tout d'abord l'envoi d'un livre qu'à commandé Charles Vincens. Roumanille parle ensuite du VI° volume d'un livre de Justin Cauvière, chronique à la Gazette du Midi comme Vincens, qui ne se vend pas à Avignon. Il doit s'agir du VI° volume du Caducée, publié entre 1878 et 1886. Roumanille profite de cette lettre pour charger Vincens de dire à Cauvière ce que les clients disent: "5F, c'est cher et ce n'est pas relié!", "il y a trop de patois et j'aime pas le patois" etc. Il parle ensuite de l'Académie de Marseille en ces termes: "Et maintenant, cher académicien d'une académie qui m'académisionnera [?] quand je me serai rendu tout à fait digne, C. à dire aux approches des calendes grecques, laissez-moi vous dire combien le vieux père du félibrige, puisqu'il faut m'appeler par son nom, à été touché de votre bienveillance pour lui [...]". Roumanille n'a pas lieu d'être satisfait de ses enfants [dans le Félibrige] qui ne respectent pas "le divin commandement". Il termine le paragraphe tel une prière par "Ainsi soit-il". Il faut noter que Roumanille n'entrera pas à l'académie de Marseille.

        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U. München, 8. VI. 1884 bis 5. VII. 1899.

      1884. Zusammen 10 SS. auf Doppelblättern. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Der Eindrucksvolle [!] Essay, welchen Sie jüngst in der 'Allgemeinen Zeitung' veröffentlicht haben, führt mir die hoffnungsreichen Worte in Erinnerung, mit welchen Sie den Empfang meiner Ihrer Einsicht unterbreiteten 'Gedichte' bestätigt haben. Da es nun immerhin auch möglich wäre, daß mir eine so gewichtige Recension entgangen ist u. ich in diesem Fall Ihnen als undankbar erscheinen müßte, so drängt es mich, natürlich ohne jede Pression damit beabsichtigen zu wollen, Ihnen meine völlige Unkenntniß über die Sachlage mit der Versicherung auszudrücken, daß es nur Besorgniß vor einer möglichen Mißdeutung meines so lange beobachteten Stillschweigens ist, welche mich dazu veranlaßte [...]" (Br. v. 8. VI. 1884). - Greif diente in der bayerischen Armee und lebte anschließend als freier Schriftsteller in München und zeitweise auch in Wien. "Seine Dramen verarbeiteten häufig historische Themen. Für sein patriotisches Schauspiel 'Ludwig der Bayer oder Der Streit von Mühldorf' (1891) errichteten ihm die Bürger von Kraiburg/Inn ein eigenes Festspielhaus. Aus Greifs lyrischem Werk, das seit 1870 zunehmend patriotische Züge trug, ragt die Naturlyrik hervor, die in einfacher Strophen-, Reim- und Versform sowie in volksliedhaftem Ton geschrieben ist" (DBE).
