Autograph letter signed "your worm" to the abbot louis le cardonnel bets, 9 fév[rier] 86, 2 p. 1/4 in-8° on mourning paper traces of folds, small spots. Verlaine is looking for the manuscript of illuminations."My dear man, they see you no more; what then become ye? How much I'd like to see you! Try to get the illuminations as soon as possible and bring them to me in a hurry. [in] sight of [a] probable edition of complete rimbaud [e]. Alas, 15 years old, all that this intelligent woman [mathilde maute] does not possess or [two words caviarized] destroys. My situation goes down or gets high, if you like.
I really don't know where I'm going, that's what we call not living anymore. An animal concern that I don't know what zutism is perhaps hope in this place. Do I work hard, though? Here are almost the memoirs of a widower on the "marble", and I finish two other volumes in prose including the second series of cursed poets.
] So finally bring the worms and see you soon, right? All the poems forming the illuminations were given by rimbaud to verlaine during their last interview, in February 1875, in stuttgart. A few months later, verlaine transmitted a dossier of "poems in prose" (which he did not yet call illuminations) to new place, according to a letter from verlaine to ernest delahaye. The manuscript was then returned to verlaine, who handed it over to his brother-in-law, charles de sivry.The latter keeps it for many years before giving it to louis the cardonnel, who entrusts it to one of his proud friends. Verlaine finally managed to send him to Gustave khan, director of the magazine La Vogue, who published it there in May and June 1886. Verlaine takes the traits of a " pitiful brother" in the poem "Vagabonds", from the collection in question.
The same year appeared at his publisher, léon vanier. The other work to which verlaine refers is perhaps praised leclercq, also published in 1886. The second edition of the cursed poets appeared in 1888. There are also three portraits in addition to those of corbière, rimbaud and mallarmé: desbordes-valmore, villi of l'isle-adam and verlaine himself, under the anagram of poor lélan. Finally, it is interesting to note that verlain here openly accuses his wife of holding or having "destroyed" manuscripts of rimbaud.
