Description
*Leon Bloy. L.A.S., July 12, 1897, [to Pierre-Victor Stock ] ; 3 pages and a half in-8.

He learned from Octave Mirbeau that his correspondent was willing to publish a book by him, and "to launch it vigorously," but Bloy had already dealt with a Belgian publisher for The Ungrateful Beggar: "it is better that this work of extreme violence be published abroad. You would have been forced to ask me for changes or deletions that would have unfailingly discouraged me. But I have another book ready, Belluaires Porchers, a volume of social literary criticism, most of whose works, once published in little-read periodicals, can pass for unpublished material. Would you like some? "... It encloses the table of contents with the titles of the 32 chapters [26 will appear in the first edition (P.-V. Stock, 1905); articles directed against Zola, Huysmans and Fr. Didon will be removed...].
Two original photographs of Bloy, and of the Bloy couple with one of their daughters, are attached [au Pouliguen, 1901].
