A letter from the author regarding the translation of his next novel into German, dated 1882
Autograph letter signed: "Emile Zola" in French, 1p, 5¼x8½. Midan, 1882 October 8. Not translated. Zola wishes to know the proposal that has been made on the subject of translating his next novel into German. Emile Zola (1840-1902) is recognized as the founder of Naturalism in literature. He is also known for defending French Army Officer Alfred Dreyfus, who had been convicted of treason (1894) and imprisoned on Devil's Island (1895). Zola had written a scathing letter beginning "J'accuse" that was published in the newspaper "L'Aurore" on January 13, 1898. Anti-Semitism had played a large part in the Dreyfus case, and after Zola's letter appeared, the author was forced to flee France. He went to England, where he lived from 1898-1899 before returning to France. Striations from being placed in a photo album. Vertical fold just touches the "E". Lightly soiled at the "la" of Zola. Otherwise, fine condition.
