- For the author: NBG XXIV, cols. 542-543. Collection of 6 letters by the French sinologist and oneirologist Marie-Jean-Léon Lecoq, Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys. The author studied Chinese under the great scholar Stanislas Julien and succeeded him in the chair of Chinese at the Collège de France. He translated parts of Ma Duanlin's massive encyclopaedia Wenxian Tongkao and published several anthologies of Chinese literature. The present letters are apparently written to colleagues and friends and mainly concern sinological matters. In one of the letters the author discusses a book by Abel des Michels, most likely his Annales imperiales de l'Annam, which Hervey de Saint-Denys recommends for the "Prix Stanislas Julien"; this prize was indeed awarded to Des Michels the following year. One letter with tear. Letters in very good condition.
