1.2: Paris Office Correspondence , 1914-1930

This small subseries contains letters mostly written by Jacques Selignmann from the Paris office to U.S. clients, collectors, and business associates. Although the earliest date reflected is 1914 and the latest is 1930, the bulk of the letters date from 1921 through 1924 and document the firm's business when the Paris office was its primary headquarters. Many of the same names that appear in the New York Office Correspondence (Series 1.1) and General Correspondence (Series 1.3) are found here as well. Most of the letters are to or from clients, collectors, and dealers concerning possible and realized sales and purchases.
The correspondence is arranged alphabetically. Researchers should note that not all names are listed in the folder inventory. This series has been scanned in entirety.
