He thus evokes his journey to the east with gustave flaubert. Sir and very honored master; I have in my possession two heads of which I do nothing and which may have an interest in you. One is a mummified Egyptian woman's head that I took from the samoun caves. The other is a head of Zeeland to which enamel eyes have been foolishly placed in the wax; the tattoo is very readable and it is very well preserved.
Do you want to allow me to offer them to you, you will be able to take advantage of them for your beautiful studies; the objects are taboo for me but for you they have a precise meaning and therefore, something useful. Please excuse this request that must be attributed to the admiration that your work inspires me...The item "Autograph letter signed maxim of the Camp à Quatrefages 1864 voyage en Orient" has been on sale since Saturday, May 2, 2020.
