Lot 677: French symbolist writer (1873–1907) best known for his 1896 play Ubu Roi and for coining the term and philosophical concept of 'pataphysics.' Rare ALS in French, one page, 4 x 5.25, personal letterhead, March 25, 1905. Letter to a friend, in full (translated): "A thousand apologies for such a delay in answering you. I was traveling continuously and am writing to you from the depth of Brittany but I am coming back and will see you probably Tuesday or Wednesday. I hope my information reached you in time—if you want more complete ones, I will be at your service in Paris." Jarry adds an "A" to the embossed letterhead. In fine condition, with trivial soiling.
