Notes
See p. 63, Letter 323, To Katharine de Mattos, [? October 1874]. Note 1 to p.63 reads: ?RLS?s copy (Vol. 4 of the Oeuvres Compl?tes, 1869) is at Yale [= Yale University Library, (Beinecke Library)]. Pages 133-8 have been cut out. Katharine gave the book to Bob [Stevenson, her brother, RLS?s cousin], who refers to it in an undated letter of this period.? The 1869 edition (Paris: Michel Levy was the first posthumous collection of Baudelaire?s works. Volume IV contained, two years after their author?s death, the first collected version of the 50 ""Petits Po?mes en Prose"". Later, editors of the prose poems reverted to the more expressive working title sometimes used by Baudelaire when they were being published in periodicals: ""Le Spleen de Paris"". RLS recommends here some of the most famous pieces among the collection.
