EMILE ZOLA A note from Zola to a colleague written on the front of his engraved calling card Autograph Note on Calling Card signed: "Emile Zola", in black ink, 4x2½. Calling card engraved with Zola's name and address. In French, translated in full: “My dear colleague, I believe that it would be better to have a five minute chat together, and I'll wait for the day that it's convenient for you to come, except for Tuesday at 6./ Cordially.”. Novelist Emile Zola (1840-1902), the founder of Naturalism, defended 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. Lightly shaded at blank left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
