Paris - Bibliotheque-Charpentier, 1897 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leather bound copy with paper covered boards and gilt titles to spine. Alfred de Musset's Oeuvres Posthumes. Text is in the original French. Musset was born on December 11, 1810 in Paris and died there. His family was upper-class, and his father worked in various key government positions, being a man-of-letters (e. g. , under his direction, in 1821, a complete edition of Rousseau's work was published).

Years later, older brother Paul de Musset would preserve these, and many other details, for posterity, in a b ... Read more
