Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature / abbreviation used in footnotes
French term or phrase: L.a.s.
This abbreviation appears in the footnotes of a piece about Gustave Doré:

"L.a.s. de G. Doré aux proprietaires..."

"L.a.s. de G. Doré à A. Kratz..."

etc.

I assume the "L" stands for "Lettre" ??

thanks
