I've posted a translation of a biographical account of Anselme Bellegarrigue, written in 1862 by Joseph Noulens, an old friend and collaborator of Bellegarrigue. It's absolutely jam-packed with entertaining stories and useful details of Bellegarrigue's life and career. But it's really just the tip of the iceberg. It's already led me to Bellegarrigue's contributions to La Mosaïque du Midi and Le Palais de Cristal, which were not political, but are certainly interesting, and it's given me enough clues to have substantially widened my search for texts and biographical material. Give it a read, and stay tuned for more information.
