Pierre-Jean de Béranger: Chansons Original Handwritten Working Manuscript

by Béranger, Pierre-Jean de

Condition: Very Good

1827 This is a one of a kind original handwritten working manuscript by the famous French chansonnier, Pierre-Jean de Béranger. These chansons are dated 1827 and were subsequently published in his fourth collection of chansons, the one which precipitated his punishment of nine months imprisonment in La Force Prison. In addition, there is one page which seems to be a crossed out chanson that may not have been published. The manuscript is about 32 pages long (with additional blank pages). The chansons are written in Béranger's hand and contain alterations and edits. It is a real, working manuscript. This is really a museum quality piece that would also be the jewel of any private collection. Text in French. Rebound in flexible red leather boards with gold gilt titles. Leather boards have edge wear, minor scratches, minor scuffs, rubbed/frayed corners/spine. . Full-Leather. Very Good.
