APOLLINAIRE Guillaume (1880-1918).
MANUSCRIT with autograph additions, Adieux, [ca. 1900]; 3 pages in-4, with vignette and letterhead of Café Terminus, Gare St. Lazare, Paris. The manuscript, in the hand of "Baron" Mollet (Jean Mollet was Apollinaire's occasional secretary), bears Apollinaire's inscribed title "Adieux," and a correction to the first line, with the word "nouveaux" autograph. This long poem, of 15 quatrains, closes the cycle of "Dicts d'amour à Linda", composed around 1900, and collected in 1925, in the posthumous collection Il y a, established by Jean Royère, director of La Phalange. This manuscript corresponds to a version slightly different from that of the collection, published in the Mercure de France of May 15, 1925, with seven variants; it has 13 stanzas (as opposed to 15 in the edition); it includes an epigraph borrowed from Carmina Burana, which has been crossed out. On the back of the last page, autograph note signed by André ROUVEYRE, dated January 1950 : " Apollinaire loved the stations, the places where one meets... where one leaves... the breweries... Many of his poems he wrote there... This one reminds me in commercial paper with its vignette, so many of his manuscripts of Nimes in 1915 a few years later...". At the top of the first page, a note in pencil: "in the direction of the 12 poems to place the last of the love poems to Linda".
