French author (1628-1703) known for his development of the fairy tale genre. Scarce ANS in French, signed "Perrault," one page, 6.5 x 1.75, no date. In full (translated): "We have continued to make observations concerning the Remarks of Mr. de Vaugelas." In very good condition, with soiling to lower portion and a trimmed top edge. Perrault must be referring to the 1647 work Remarks on the French Language by Claude Favre de Vaugelas, an influential attempt to standardize the French language and prescribe correct usage. A rare piece with excellent content as it relates to the craft of writing.
