This new session includes 6 sales.

The second sale includes works by the greatest authors of French 19th century literature such as Lamartine, Flaubert, Stendhal, Dumas, Maupassant, Chateaubriand or Baudelaire. Victor Hugo will be particularly featured through his novels, poetry and his works for theater. Auctions n°24 and 25 consist of a single collection about the French Academy, gathered by six generations of the marquis de Flers family starting in 1830. It will be offered in its entirety, first by Drouot Estimations and then by Ader and will take visitors and bidders through candidacies, elections, receptions or even the creation of French dictionary across a fine selection of letters, manuscripts and documents. The last sale of the week will focus on History of France through its Kings, Emperors and Presidents fom the 14th to the 20th century. On 4 December, the 27th auction of the series will be dedicated to Jean Cocteau and organised by Drouot Estimations.
