Details

Handwritten manuscript signed, twelve pages (lined paper), 8,75 x 13,5 inch, probably at the end of May 1921, in French, handwritten draft entitled "Chronique de la quinzaine" is a Memorandum with detailed comments on international politics, probably written under the impression of the referendum in Upper Silesia, and is a remarkable testimony of the French point of view on world affairs in the years after the First World War: with the general tenor, that England (and especially Prime Minister David Lloyd George) isn`t vigorously enough towards defeated Germany and shows little understanding for French concerns - particularly as France has had to bear the main burden of the war on the Allied side, followed by a detailed critical analysis of international relations with the demand for rapprochement of France and England to avoid a geopolitical disaster, written (with numerous corrections) and signed by Raymond Poincare in dark ink "Raymond Poincare", a few pages with mild stains, small tears to the lower edges, and a horizontal cut (pages 5-12) repaired on the reverse - otherwise in fine to good condition. Accompanied by a summary of the memorandum (in German).
