JULES MASSENETSigned autograph letter in French (1893), praising the recipient and arranging a meeting Autograph Letter signed: "J Massenet", in black ink, 2p, 4½x7, integral leaf. Paris, 1893 May 7. To "Dear great friend". In French, translated in full:"It is so good and so consoling to see such an artist as yourself! (I'm talking about you!) [2 words indecipherable] after having bought [3 words indecipherable]. I will be at the Champs de Mars tomorrow- where I hope to see you and thank you again for the honor you have done me.-/ Yours,/ With great admiration -/[signature]/ I just received an invitation for Tuesday. Thank you.". French composer Jules Massenet (1842-1912) made his name with the comic opera Don César de Bazan (1872). Other operas followed, including Manon (1884), considered by many to be his masterpiece, Le Cid (1885) and Werther (1892). In addition to his ambitious operas and orchestral works, Massenet wrote over 200 popular songs, many of them based on published poems. Horizontal fold crease. Lightly toned and soiled at edges. Adhesive residue (previous mounting) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
