Description                           Estimate: $200+          

Collection of four items signed by French marshals, including three signed by Henri Jacques Guillaume Clarke (two LSs signed “Clarke” and a DS signed “Cte de Hunebourg”), and one signed by Aimable Pelissier (ALS signed “Msl. Pelissier Duke of Malakoff”). Pelissier’s letter, in part (translated): "My dear poet, but a poet become unfruitful…In Gran where your flutist makes the forest resound with beautiful music…his lazy colonel is savoring the sweetness of the shady woods…instead of doing like those old Normans, my ancestors, who hastened to conquer the Angles stella monstrante cometa [the comet showing the way]…I often think of that beautiful Queen of Niniveh…who gets me to come down from the throne like that illustrious loser of Novara who was in fact, the first King of Italy.” In overall fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
