He contributed to the early development of the opera comique. He was also regarded as the best chess player of his age; his book Analyse du jeu des Echecs was considered a standard chess manual for at least a century, and a well-known chess opening and a checkmate method are both named after him. ALS, dated [?], 4pp, 6-1/2 x 8-1/4 in. VG. RARE indeed !
