Free Images, French letter from 1845



I was thinking of reproducing my other French antique book from 1925 and inside I came across a reproduction of a letter in French written by Charles-Jean Avisseau, a ceramist from Tourangeau saying he refused to sell his reproductions by De Bernard Palissy to merchants of bric a brac , it was written in 1845. It was sent to Monsieur Alexandre, Valtimare 48 Rue, De Clichy, Paris. I thought someone might enjoy this. One set is in one twelfth scale and the other has a higher resolution.
