2 pages, 8vo (together 6 pages, 8vo)." /> PROUST, Marcel. Two autograph letters signed to Lucien Daudet, <I>both n.p. [Paris]</I>, the first <I>n.d. [3 April 1917]</I>, explaining that the previous evening he tried in vain to have him telephoned, having decided to invite [Paul] Morand, Princess Murat and Princess Soutzo to dine with him at the Ritz; there was no reply and Céleste could not persist as she had to prepare his jacket. All this is so that Daudet may know he would not have arranged the dinner without him had he known he was in Paris, <I>4 pages, 8vo</I>; the second <I>n.d. [2 or 3 August 1917]</I>, saying how happy he would have been to see him but he is too tired to get up, and inviting him to call instead, 'Si cela ne t'ennuie pas de "passer les ponts quand il faisait du vent" tu me trouveras ce soir chez moi'; otherwise he asks him to say where he may send him word the next day, <I>2 pages, 8vo (together 6 pages, 8vo)</I>. | Christie's
