VIGNY (Alfred de).
La Maréchale d'Ancre. Paris, Charles Gosselin, Barba, 1831. In-8, burgundy half-maroquin with corners, smooth spine decorated, gilt head, untrimmed, cover (Semet & Plumelle).
First edition, with a lithographed frontispiece by Tony Johannot.
This romantic drama is inspired by the life of Léonora Dori, known as Galigaï, marshal of Anchor, who was executed and burned during the reign of Louis XIII for witchcraft. Alfred de Vigny had written it for Marie Dorval, who could not play it. The play was performed on June 25, 1831 at the Odéon, with Mademoiselle George in the main role.
Signed letter from Vigny to Adolphe Dittmer (1795-1846), his friend and former student at the Hix institution; the latter was a journalist at the Globe and published in 1827 with Hygin-Auguste Cavé, under the pseudonym of Fongeray, a witty collection of plays with political tendencies entitled Les Soirées de Neuilly.
From the library of Dr. Robert Fleury (I, 1997, no. 332), with his ex-libris engraved by Albert Decaris
