Beautiful letter about the preparation of the new editions of Madame bovary and of salammbô at the publisher georges carpentier. Flaubert had wished to incorporate into annexes, for Madame Bovary, the documents of the trial which had acquitted him and for Salammbô, the articles of Saint Beuve and the Orientalist Froehner who had called into question the rigor of his historical research.
For salammbô alone, his answers to the criticisms will be integrated: "I have just read the two articles of froehner and I do not think that they should be analysed. It is more loyal & crane to print them in-extenso.
The 3 articles of drinking stet, my letter to iceluy, the article of froehner, my reply, its second article and my reply must not hold more place in the volume of salammbô than the requisitory of pinard & the argument of senard hold in bovary! - Note that salammbô is shorter than the bovary! I await the end of the trials of the so-called salammbô.
Georges [charpentier] has just received from me a letter to consider. " During the trial of Madame Bovary initiated by the prosecutor ernest pinard, which took place on February 7, 1857 in the correctional chamber of betting, three men appeared: leon laurent-pichat, director of the betting magazine, august-alexis pillet, printer of the periodical, and gustave flaubert. Laurent-pichat was charged with having, in 1856, "published in the issues of December 1 and 15 of the betting magazine fragments of a novel entitled Madame bovary and, in particular, various fragments contained in pages 73, 77, 78, 272, 273, committed offences of contempt for public and religious morality and good morals (.) pillet printing for them to be published, flaubert writing and handing over to laurent-pichat to be published, the fragments of the novel (.) and thus became accomplices to these offences provided for in articles 1 and 8 of the Act of 17 May 1819, and 59 and 60 of the Penal Code.
" Originally, the maxim of the camp, a childhood friend of Flaubert, had handed the manuscript of Madame Bovary to laurent-pichat for publication. The latter first asked to subtract certain passages.From the camp shared this view. A specialist was in charge of the work, amputating the novel from a chapter and shortening passages to the great dam de flaubert. When laurent-pichat attacked the famous passage of the feacon, flaubert, furibard, wrote to him: "We do not whiten the negroes and we do not change the blood of a book; we can impoverish it, that is all (.) " Following the acquittal of flaubert, in exchange for a few cuts in the original version, he wrote on his personal copy the following lines: "This copy represents my manuscript as it came out of the hands of the laurent sieur pichat, poet and editor owner of the betting magazine.
