A later signed copy of the author's first book, published in 1869. Judith Gautier (1845-1917) was a French poet, translator and historical novelist, the daughter of Théophile Gautier and Ernesta Grisi, sister of the noted singer and ballet dancer Carlotta Grisi. She was an Oriental scholar and her works dealt mainly with Chinese and Japanese themes. Her translations were among the earliest to bring Chinese and Japanese poetry to the attention of modern European poets. She was a member of the Académie Goncourt (1910–17). A handwritten dedication from the author: 'Pour Iskender Dorado, accueilly nos penses comme les hotes et traity nos desirs comme des enfants' (welcome our thoughts as guests and treat our desires as children.)
