Dinard, 1953. Single printed leaf (26.8 x 21.0 cm). Hand-written, signed and dated.

Hand-written letter (dated 22 August 1953), on Muséum d'Histoire naturelle, Laboratoire Maritime Aquarium et Musée de la Mer stationery, by the French malacologist and oyster culture specialist André Franc (1911-1990's - exact year of death unknown), to the French marine biologist, ichthyologist, parasitologist, and director of the Service des Pêches Coloniales, Robert Philippe F. Dollfus (1887-1976). Dollfus was a son of the malacologist Gustave Frédérique Dollfus (co-author of the famous Les mollusques marins du Rousillon), and was interested in Mollusca himself. Paul Henri Fischer wrote his necrologie in the Journal de Conchyliologie 114(3-4), p. 131. In this letter, Franc, who was a deputy director of the Dinard marine museum, refers to parasites in trochids, and asks for a few papers written by Dollfus. The latter notes, in ink, that he replied on the 3rd of September, 1953. Horizontal and vertical fold in the middle, otherwise very good.
