In French, to an unidentified recipient: "Our mutual friend, Mr. Mennique, informs me that it is you who are legally entitled to the copyright of a small brochure which has just been published in a Paris newspaper and which was favourably received [...]" (transl.). In the postscript, Nadar writes: "Perhaps there may be a possibility of inserting a few simple drawings which I could take care of by resuming my former metier of caricaturist of the 'wild and raucous' [...]".

Very good overall, with some mounting remnants on the back of one of the quarter panels. From the Collection of John Herzog.
