Alfred Capus (1858-1922) was a French author, who was born at Aix-en-Provence.
In 1878 he published a volume of short stories, and in the next year the two produced
a one-act piece, "Le Mari malgre lui", at the Théâtre Cluny. He had been educated
as an engineer, but became a journalist, and joined the staff of the Figaro newspaper
in 1894. His novels, "Qui perd gagne" (1890), "Faux Depart" (1891), "Année des
d'aventures" (1895) describe the struggles of three young men at the beginning
of their career. From the first of these he took his first comedy, "Brignol et
sa fille". (www.logosquotes.org)
"Les Contemporains Celebres, was
published by Lefrevre-Utile (famed Biscuit producer) containing portraits...some
of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities" (Rennert,
"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,
