Signed and inscribed in ink by Gounod at the top of the title page: "à mon ami, Léon Leroy : Souvenir affecteux. Ch. Gounod."

Sold with an ALS of presentation from Gounod to Léon Leroy dated "Samedi 5 février /70". The text is: " Mon cher ami, Il y a huit jours que j'ai votre médecin … Et le mien aussi – car je viens d'être malade, et je sors de mon lit. C'est pourquoi je n'ai pu mettre la main sur votre addresse dont la copie était dans mes papiers. Voulez-vous avoir la bonté de faire prendre mon souvenir chez mon concierge ? Il y est déposé par bande à votre nom --- à vous Ch. Gounod. " ["My dear friend, It has been eight days since I had your doctor --- and my own as well – since I came to be sick, and I left my bed. It's why I have not been able to put my hand on your address which was in my papers. Would you have the goodness to come and get my souvenir from my concierge? It is deposited in a wrapper in your name. Yours, Ch. Gounod."] Léon Leroy was a distinguished clarinetist and a member, first in Paris, then later in New York, of the Société Moderne pour InstrumentsàVent and a soloist with the Garde Republicaine Band in Paris. Le Médecin Malgré Lui was Gounod's third opera, dating from 1858.
