This 2 page letter was beautifully handwritten in 1827 to the Marquis de Biencourt.
The Biencourt family were military men under King Louis XVI, and in 1827 the Marquis was Armand-François-Marie, who lived in one of the most enchanting châteaux of the Loire Valley, the Château d’Azay le Rideau.
The letter is an exquisite specimen of early 19th century penmanship, and is even more special with its faded ink and yellowed paper. I have not made any modifications to the scan of the original letter.
Paper ephemera for scrapbooking, junk journals and craft projects, or to add some elegant French flair to your home or office space.
