Letter from Rene to Maryse

Paris: L'Agence d'Informations Cinematographiques, 1962. Original promotional brochure from French journalist and press agent Rene Quinson to fellow press agent Maryse Martres, inscribed by Quinson in 1962. The brochure presents Quinson as an amateur psychic, predicting the recipient's future, leaning toward money, luck, and success. Quinson's inscription in holograph ink is rather illegible, but there are references to friendship and the previous year, 1961.

Both Quinson and Martres (Martin) were involved in press relations in Paris during the 1950s and 1960s. Little is documented on Quinson, but he wasin a single TV episode of the French series "Les rendez-vous du dimanche" (1980). Martres (Martin) was a prolific French actress since 1948, notably "Girl on the Third Floor" (1955) and "The Happy Road" (1957), and she was later involved in press relations at Cinedis, a notable film agency in operation since the Silent Film era.

3.5 x 8.5 inches, folded once, black-and-white and red. Very Good plus, with light foxing.
