Two pages joined in bifolium, in French, with his address printed at the top of the first page, sold untranslated. Debussy writes "Excuse me for not having answered immediately on the subject of your charming communication from your subscriber. This man is sinister, and why does he call me M. Claude? As if we have to watch for Monsieur Croche, the two of us? Otherwise all this is of no importance, Monsieur Croche has seen plenty of others and has never despaired of human stupidity...". As a music critic for the magazine Le Revue, Debussy had created an imaginary visitor called "M. Croche" (croche is the French word for a quaver note). This character is argumentative and his ideas about music are full of ambiguity. Letter is likely to his close friend Louis Laloy, an eminent musicologist and critic, co-founder of Le Mercure Musical, which had just announced it would be printing "Interview with Monsieur Croche". Bifolium with 4 pages, total size is 10.6 x 7.1 inches, each page is 5.3 x 7.1 inches, small tear with loss of paper on the upper left corner, otherwise in very good condition. Bold, clear and full signature "Claude Debussy".

Debussy writes "Excuse me for not having answered immediately on the subject of your charming communication from your subscriber. This man is sinister, and why does he call me M. Claude? As if we have to watch for Monsieur Croche, the two of us? Otherwise all this is of no importance, Monsieur Croche has seen plenty of others and has never despaired of human stupidity...". As a music critic for the magazine Le Revue, Debussy had created an imaginary visitor called "M. Croche" (croche is the French word for a quaver note). This character is argumentative and his ideas about music are full of ambiguity. Letter is likely to his close friend Louis Laloy, an eminent musicologist and critic, co-founder of Le Mercure Musical, which had just announced it would be printing "Interview with Monsieur Croche". Bifolium with 4 pages, total size is 10.6 x 7.1 inches, each page is 5.3 x 7.1 inches, small tear with loss of paper on the upper left corner, otherwise in very good condition. Bold, clear and full signature "Claude Debussy".
