1 page (298 x 200mm). Written in brown ink on watermarked paper in a neat humanist script. Accompanied by contemporary portrait engraving of Guizot (82 x 73mm) excised from publication and pasted on modern paper. Francois Guizot, French historian, orator, and statesman, was a dominant figure in French politics prior to the Revolution of 1848. He was appointed Minister of Education from 1832 to 1837 and wrote this letter his first year in office announcing a scholarship for Mr. Masson. Guizot's influence was critical in expanding public education, which under his ministry saw the creation of primary schools in every French commune. He later became an ambassador to London, Foreign Minister from 1840-1847, and Prime Minister of France from 19 September 1847 to 23 February 1848. Bookseller Inventory # 6497
