ANDRÉ CITROËN
The French industrialist signs a letter to Italian journalist Joseph-Marie Lo Duca, thanking him for a copy of his novel.
Black-bordered TLS: "Andre Citroën", 1p, 5¼x7. 31 rue Octave Feuillet, 1934 October 10. To Mr. J.M. LoDuca, Paris. In French, translated. In full: "I have indeed received your book 'La Sfera di Platino' [The Platinum Sphere] which you kindly sent me. I am very touched by your delicate attention and I sincerely thank you for it. Please accept, dear sir, my most distinguished respects." André Citroën made munitions for France during WWI. He then turned his plant into one producing low-priced automobiles by introducing American mass-production methods. In the year he wrote this letter, Citroën declared bankruptcy and lost his firm. He died the following year. The letter is addressed to Joseph-Marie Lo Duca (1905-2010), an Italian journalist, writer, and co-founder of the influential French "Cahiers du Cinéma" magazine. The book mentioned here ("The Platinum Sphere") was Lo Duca's first publication. Fine condition.
