BANVILLE, Theodore de. Set of 5 L.A.S. to "my dear friend" [probably Edouard Pailleron (1834-1899)]. Villa Banville (Nièvre) and Paris, 1878-1887. 6 pp. 1/2 in-8 and in-12. Friendly correspondence of 5 letters from Théodore de Banville to Edouard Pailleron. "I was yesterday in Rambouillet: what a sublime park and how beautiful it would be if there was a river! []. For Petite Pluie, read me, it is with joy that I will celebrate this revival; I am all bought in advance (like a tiger!) and extremely charmed by what you tell me about my book. I am willing to give up everything, but not to please those whose spirits I love [...]". Edouard Pailleron is the author of Petite Pluie, a one-act comedy; he is therefore most likely the recipient of this correspondence.
