Claude Debussy addresses an envelope to Monsieur Bertault.
Unsigned Envelope addressed by Debussy, 5x3½. French stamp affixed, postmarked at the Victor-Hugo postal station, Paris, July 7, 1910. Addressed by Debussy to: "Monsieur Bertault/4 rue du Boucher/V". "V" stood for "Ville" or "City". He's added in upper right: "Pneumatique". There was a MR. BERTAULT with whom DEBUSSY had financial correspondence. The Poste Pneumatique system was set up in 1866 allowing Parisian post offices to exchange mail through a network of cylinders which move by compressed air at about 18 miles per hour. This service was discontinued in 1984. Claude Debussy (1862-1918) composed piano music, opera, cantatas, ballets, and orchestral and chamber works. His most notable pieces are Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) (1894) and Nocturnes (1899). He was often inspired by pictorial subjects (Monet's water impressions became Reflections in the Water for piano) and by nature (Footsteps in the Snow, Still Leaves). Lightly soiled, worn and creased. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 24¼ x21½.
