Lot 250: Controversial leader of the early stages of the French Revolution (1749–1791). Boldly penned ALS in French, signed "de Mirabeau," one page both sides, 6.25 x 7.75, September 15, 1783. Letter to the director of the Typographic Society of Neuchatel, where he had sent a manuscript. Mirabeau writes regarding local booksellers who are reluctant to commit to a deal for a large quantity of a book they do not know. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. It is likely that Mirabeau is referring to his obscene book Errotika Biblion, which was first published in Neuchatel in 1783.
