14 January 1884. In French. 3 pp. 7 x 4½ inches, light toning. Antoine Gustave Droz (1832 – 1895), author, French man of letters. He was educated as an artist, and began to exhibit in Paris at the Salon of 1857. A series of sketches dealing gaily and lightly with the intimacies of family life, published in the La Vie Parisienne and issued in book form as Monsieur, Madame et Bébé (1866), won for the author an immediate and great success. Entre Nous (1867) was built on a similar plan, and was followed by some psychological novels: Le Cahier Bleu de Mlle Cibot (1868); Autour d'une Source (1869); Un Paquet de Lettres (1870); Babolain (1872); Les Étangs (1875); Une Femme Gênante (1875); and L'Enfant (1885). His Tristesses et Sourires (1884) is a delicate analysis of the niceties of family intercourse and its difficulties. Droz's first book was translated into English under the title of Papa, Mamma and Baby (1887).
