Camus ponders a "thesis on French writers of the Resistance against the Germans"

ALS in French, one page both sides, 5.25 x 8.25, NRF letterhead, August 1, 1953. Letter to a gentleman, in part (translated): "I thank you for letting me have your thesis on French writers of the Resistance against the Germans. I took the time to read it and I am sending it on to Paris to the attention of that friend of yours who is supposed to pick it up in September. I keep on finding your work useful and true. In addition I was able to appreciate the seriousness of your documentation and the clarity of your argument. The true difficulty, for its publication in French, comes from the fact that the French are generally very familiar with those texts. It is the determining objection that was raised at Gallimard where I requested that your thesis be reviewed. But it seems to me that the work's interest would remain intact for the United States or Germany." In fine condition.
