About this Item

Cloquet, Jules (1790-1883). Autograph letter signed to [Jean-Pierre] Dantan jeune (1800-1869). 1 page plus integral address leaf. Paris, 20 March 1857. 208 x 134 mm. One corner of address leaf torn away (not affecting text), minimal foxing, but very good. [With:] Genty, Maurice. Jules-Germain Cloquet (1790-1883). Les biographies médicales 7, no. 9 (September 1933). 261-276pp. 2 plate leaves. Paris: J.-B. Baillière. 257 x 170 mm. Original printed wrappers. Very good. From physician and anatomist Jules Cloquet, author of Anatomie de l'homme (Garrison-Morton 409), the first anatomical atlas illustrated by lithography. His correspondent was French sculptor Jean-Pierre Dantan, called "le jeune" (to distinguish him from his older brother Antoine-Laurent, also a sculptor), best known for his portrait sculptures and his sculptural caricatures. Dantan's marble bust of Cloquet, done in 1866, is illustrated in Genty's biographical notice of Cloquet, a copy of which accompanies this letter. Cloquet was initially trained as an artist; he entered medical school after working as a wax modeler for the Paris Faculty of Medicine. The letter can be translated in part as follows: "My dear friend, I own a certain number of busts, figurines, medallions in plaster, which time, smoke and most of all handling by servants have blackened . . . I would like to have them bronzed by a man who is skilled and honest. You must be well informed on this subject and I beg you to send me his name and address via a word sent through the post . . .".
