An exhibition catalogue of the Adam papers, a series of letters and manuscript articles associated with the French nineteenth-century writer and salon hostess, Juliette Adam. They cover the period from 1880 to the mid-1920s, a time of political and social turmoil in France, as it was in most of Europe. In addition to some 47 letters to various correspondents, there are letters to a Hungarian journalist, Arany; to Adam’s friend Mme d’Arnaldi; to the publishers, Gervais and Georges Charpentier; to the drama critic, Léopold Lacour; and to another newspaper man, Charles de Maurel. Thirty letters record her friendship with Ernest Daudet, brother of the writer Alphonse, best known for his Lettres de mon Moulin (Letters from my Windmill) and Tartarin de Tarascon. Also included are several of Adam’s articles, revealing some of her eclectic interests in such matters as the political situation in Egypt, concerning which she claimed to know all about a plot by the eminent diplomat, Lord Dufferin.
