Coppée (1842-1908) French poet and dramatist. He won fame with the one-act
comedy Le Passant (1869, tr. 1881), in which Sarah Bernhardt made her first successful
appearance. His early verse, as in Le Reliquaire (1866), linked him with the Parnassians
; his later work, as in Les Humbles (1872), is sentimental and tells of the sorrows
of the poor. La Bonne Souffrance (1898), a religious novel, was written after
his return to Catholicism." (www.encyclopedia.com)
Contemporains Celebres, was published by Lefrevre-Utile (famed Biscuit producer)
containing portraits...some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary
celebrities" (Rennert, PAI-XXXVI, 584)
"Published by Lefevre-Utile and Octave Beauchamp, Paris, and distributed
by G. de Malherbe, containing portraits, biographies, signed testimonials and
some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities. You might
be asking yourself just what do Sarah Bernhardt, Anatole France, Rejane, Granier,
Massenet, Bartholdi and the Queen of Madagascar have in common? The answer is
quite simple: They all love Lefevre-Utile biscuits, of course" (Rennert,
