Grimod de La Reynière, A.B.L. - L.A.S. to Maradan, the publisher of his Almanach des Gourmands. Castle of Villers-sur-Orge, 27 May 1817. 3 pp. in-4, address on the back. Literary curiosities of a gastronome: he returns to Maradan the volume 9 of Saint-Simon's Mémoires which was sent to him by mistake, while he was waiting for the volume 8. He thanks him for not holding a delay in payment against him and is happy to learn that this delay "which has distressed me so much, has not caused you any anxiety for the present, nor any distrust for the future [...] I am going, according to your kind and obliging offers, to take care these days of drawing up a list of the books I need. Do you know the name of the author of a very nice novel entitled "The Contradictions" that you printed in the past [...] Do you also know the name of the author of 15 days and 6 weeks in London? We poor country folk don't know anything anymore. Do you also know the names of the editors of the Journal de Paris? Let us point out that Pauline de Meulan is the author of the Contradictions and Defauconpret of the stays in London.
