Mademoiselle Edith Piaf recounts her success with audiences in Scandinavia and mentors her assistant in France.

Letter signed by Edith Piaf and her secretary, who wrote down what Piaf dictated to her in the room of the most prestigious hotel in Oslo. The recipient is Faou, a personal assistant who has stayed in Paris to take care of his business. In French. One page, front and back. 14.9 cm x 20.6 cm. At the Bristol hotel in Oslo, April 13, year not known. Excellent condition. Single piece.


We received the first envelope containing the correspondence and impatiently await the next. Especially here, everything that comes from Paris pleases us. The triumph continues and grows. The audience is extraordinary (...).

We are very concerned about the major works undertaken in the apartment. Above all, do not commit yourself to any expense in our absence (...).

I'm counting on you for Radio 47 and a film journal or two.

Miss EP

Edith Piaf (1915 - 1963) is a monument of French culture, a legendary singer. After the war, it became famous internationally in Europe, South America and the United States.

In 1948, she met the great love of her life, boxer Marcel Cerdan, who became world boxing champion and, shortly afterwards, died in a plane crash. This great love story, which was targeted by the media, had great importance in its history.

Among Piaf's greatest hits are "La vie en rose" (1946), "Milord" (1959) or "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960). She sang "Hymne à l'amour" (1949) and "Mon Dieu" (1960, composed by Charles Dumont) in Marcel's memory.

At the time Edith Piaf wrote this letter, she was touring Scandinavia, where she found great success. Although this letter was not written in Piaf's own hand, but dictated and signed by her, the content is very interesting to understand the singer's personality and day-to-day life at the height of her career. She missed Paris and pointed out how much Northern European audiences loved her concerts. She also asked for news from some people in Paris, worried about her apartment, which was under renovation at the time, and requested some film magazines.
