Signed letter to amaury duval. Letter signed, bets, 23 May 1820, 2 pages, to the historian amaury duval. Beautiful letter about the publication of his next book, French archaeology, or vocabulary of old words fallen into obsolescence. The book will be well published in two volumes (1821 and 1825) but by theodore desoër rather than huntership and gap, which were the author's first choice. At the age of 24, charles de pougens (which, according to the Marquise de Crequy, would be the natural son of the prince of Conti) had an important literary activity as an author, translator, lexicographer, publisher and printer.
He was a member of 38 French and foreign academies. Paris rue des saintes pères n°17 6.My dear and excellent colleague. The fear of choosing my moments wrongly prevents me from having the honor to go to your house in person.
On my side, I'm sure you're busy. In short, allow me to repeat our conversation last Friday in one line. I want to publish my French archaeology.I'll send you the manuscript. I believe the book is useful and I have done it with care. You know I can't read. Some ill-intentioned people might find me perhaps a little heavy; but they're bad guys, don't listen to them. This simultaneity of publications of such a different genre, my treasure of the origins of the French language, my four ages, the portrait of a young girl by a butterfly, my cartreux, my abel, this archaeology in question, flatter my own love and amuse me a lot: I am no better than that.
At least I'm saying it, and it's something. My very keen desire would be that it was Mr. Hailman who took charge of this small-scale enterprise. What I'm coming to is the press release. Please do what is necessary.Amaury duval of the Institut de france acad. Rue du vieux dovecoier n°26.
