Precious autograph letter signed by Henri Petiet, famous bibliophile and print lover, addressed to marius michel, dated 2 June 1923. Three and a half pages. I receive the badge that you have sent me so kindly, and that reminds me of the great pleasure I had in sitting next to you on February 17, 1923. I am touched to see the modesty with which you want to report on your colleagues the very weak testimony of admiration that was given to you and I can only once again associate myself with the few words that Mr. Beraldi spoke that day and that he had written some thirty years before: you are the greatest binder that we have had since the renaissance.Let me tell you once again, my dear master, all my respect and all my admiration, and ask you to believe in my very devoted feelings. Even if the name of marius michel is not directly mentioned by Mr.
Petiet, this letter is well destined for him. Recall that marius michel will make several great bindings for this demanding and distinguished amateur, some of the most beautiful reproduced in the sales catalogues of the petiet library. This item is in the category "books, bd, magazines\old books, collection". The seller is "choubialex" and is located in this country: fr.
