French writer (1871–1922) known for the sixteen-volume In Search of Lost Time, regarded as one of the greatest achievements in world literature. Unsigned hand-addressed mailing envelope, 5.75 x 3.75, addressed by Proust to “Monsieur Le Comte Georges de Lauris, 22 rue Lalo, Paris.” Postmarked at Paris, March 16, 1915. A tear and area of paper loss to the top edge from opening, and a bit of soiling and stray postmark ink, otherwise fine condition. Proust was introduced to Georges de Lauris through his friend Antoine Bibesco in 1902, and they soon became friends and frequently wrote to each other; the correspondence between Proust and de Lauris was published by Amiot-Dumont in 1948. Any autographic material from the great writer is highly sought-after. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
