Description


French composer (1842–1912) best known for such operas as ‘Manon,’ ‘Werther,’ and ‘Thais.’ ALS in French, signed “Massenet,” one page, 4.5 x 6, May 9, 1912. Letter to a friend, in part (translated): “With the greatest joy, and being very honored by your letter, I say to you: See you next Sunday, 12 May, at 5:30 (sharp, alas!), 48 rue de Vaugirard.” Double-matted and framed with a head-and-shoulders photograph of the composer to an overall size of 15 x 12. In fine condition, with a red pencil notation within the body of the text. Having suffered abdominal cancer for months, Massenet’s condition worsened sharply following a visit to his doctor in Paris. He died days later at the age of 70, only a few months after writing this letter. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
