French politician and philosopher (1809-1865) who was the first to describe himself as an anarchist. ALS in French, signed “P. J. Proudhon,” one page, 4.25 x 5.5, August 4. Handwritten letter, in full (translated): “I respectfully salute Mr. Lebegue. Should Mr. Paul need a few pages to complete the fourth sheet he has to lay out, he can have someone take them here tomorrow morning, fixing the number himself. As for the surplus, I would like to read it only tomorrow afternoon. Has Mr. Boussard received the 8th? If not, Mr. Lebegue would very much oblige me by sending it. Mr. Boussard has been back at his home since Sunday. Finally, I am asking whether one should soon have copies printed on special paper.” In fine condition.
