Lot #642 - THE DREYFUS AFFAIR

NORDAU MAX - 1908 final draft for his speech at a Paris conference introducing the next speaker Mr Victor Basch who was one of the first and a famous Dreyfusard. Nordau tells that he himself was in Rennes at the period of the 2nd Dreyfus Process 1899 and describes in detail V. Basch's brave conduct against the rising Anti-Semitic crowds... written 1½  pages in French on "Docteur M. Nordau" Paris stationery; folded, fine & historic as Nordau docs relating to the Anti-Semitism of the period are seldom offered. He, like Herzl, was deeply influenced by the Dreyfus Trials,
