Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Bainville mss., 1927-1934, are the letters of Jacques Bainville, 1879-1936, historian and journalist who was born at Vincennes near Paris. In due time he joined the Royalist Party and became one of the editors of Action Francaise. Later he was concerned with the political philosophy of the World War. In 1920 he joined the management of La Revue Universelle, and during the twenties wrote Jaco et Lori and La Tasse de Saxe. These letters are about the two books, probably to his publisher Monsieur Brun or Monsieur Peyrounet of Librairie Bernard Grasset. Three of the letters are written on the stationery of la Revue universelle, 157, Bould St. Germain, 157, Paris Vie.
