CHARLES GOUNOD
The composer writes this letter on one of his monogrammed cards in 1884, asking for the exclusive German rights to Combat d'Amour for one thousand francs
Autograph Letter signed: "Ch. Gounod". 1 page, 4x3¼ card engraved with Gounod's monogram. 1884 September 13. In French, translated in full: "Dear Sir, Will you offer one thousand francs for the exclusive rights in Germany to 'Combat d'Amour?' If you are so disposed, will you please mail the check for one thousand francs together with the contract which I shall sign and return to you. Yours truly,". French composer Charles Gounod (1818-1893) is best known for his religious works and operas, including Faust (1959), Mireille (1864) and Romeo and Juliet (1867). Later in his life, Gounod, who had lived in England from 1870-1875, wrote his famous musical setting of Ave Maria. He also wrote oratorios, symphonies and chamber music. Lightly toned, foxed, stained and soiled. Light impressions, which touch handwriting, but not signature. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
