        Manuscript - Russian Noble & Refugee's Witness Account of Russian Revolution and Bolshevik Regime

      Russia, 1916. Koreiz, Odessa, Biarritz, 1916-1919. Manuscript day journal from the personal archive of a Russian noble and refugee Elisabetta Ruffo-Sasso (1886-1940), Grand Duchess of Russia, featuring a disturbing and graphic peasant's firsthand account of Bolshevik regime terror inflicted upon common folk in Ukraine, recounted to the writer who was herself fleeing from Russia to live in exile. Entries showing a connection to Scandinavia, as well as the specific period described for the peasant's account which correlates directly with her escape route from Saint Petersburg, and the timing of the journey to France, reveal that the volume is in fact that of Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (1890-1958), her husband's second cousin. Containing poems, contemplations, recipes, inscriptions made by others, text is mostly in Russian, with some in French and English. 8vo. Approximately 31 pages written in English pertain to the 1918 peasant's account of Bolshevik torture and murder in Odessa, and 9 pages written in Russian pertain to the 1919 journey to Biarritz. Black leather boards, a scant few leaves loose at hinge, otherwise in very good condition, a most interesting volume warranting further investigation. Provenance: From the estate archives of Elisabetta Fabrizievna Ruffo (1886-1940), Grand Duchess of Russia, and wife of Prince Andrei Alexandrovich of Russia (1897-1981) who is second cousin to Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (1890-1958), both being great-grandchildren of Emperor Nicholas I (1796-1855). The archive was held by the family of Elisabetta's daughter from her first marriage (Elisabeth Alexandrovna Friderici) and surfaced in 2015. The collection, which surfaced in October 2015, contained numerous family letters, photographs, journals, writings or articles by herself and/or the Prince, her mother's watercolour art, and a few items from other family members. This manuscript volume, which has been safe-guarded for 100 years, represents the displacement of the distinguished Russian Imperial family during the Revolution, and reveals specific Bolshevist terrorist acts inflicted upon innocent civilians in the Ukraine - No person being exempt to the extremists unrelenting appetite for totalitarianism, not royalty, nor commoner! This journal belonged to Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (1890-1958) who was fleeing Russia in 1918 with her husband, who stayed in Odessa on her journey, and who fourteen years later would write a book on her life as an expat survivor. Certain events of her life correspond to entries within. During the war, Maria served as a nurse in Russia, until her exodus. In France in the 1920s she had an embroidery studio, and in 1928 she moved to New York, from where she published a book describing her life in exile. Maria is the daughter of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia (1860-1919), the grand-daughter of Tsar Alexander II of Russia [Alexander Nikolaevich Romanov], and the great-grand-daughter of Nicholas I [Nicholas Pavlovich Romanov]. A few entries in 1916 are penned at Helsinki, possibly while Maria was travelling to visit her young son. [In 1908 Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna had married Prince Wilhelm of Sweden, Duke of Södermanland, the second son of King Gustav V of Sweden, thus creating her connection to Scandinavia. They had one child, born in 1909, Prince Lennart, Duke of SmÃ¥land. The marriage ended in divorce in 1914. Maria left her son behind in Sweden under his father's custody.] From April 1916 to later in the year, several are initialed F.P. and appear to have been made, in part, at Kurgan [KYPRHA], in Kurgan Oblast. A double-leaf poetic work, placed within the volume may have been penned in Moscow [Moskva]. At the outbreak of the war, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna trained as a nurse. With Princess Helen of Serbia, the grand duchess was sent to the northern front, at Instenburg in East Prussia, under command of general Rennenkampf. For bravery under airplane fire, she was awarded the St George medal. In 1915, after the Russian withdrawal from East Prussia, she took over a hospital at Pskov, where she worked as a nurse. One entry signed by another party, May 1916, was penned at Koreïs in Crimea [Koreiz, in the Yalta community, where Elisabetta was born, and which is famous for the palace as Dulber, belonging to her second husband's cousin, Grand Duke Peter Nicolaievich of Russia, where her husband Prince Andrei Alexandrovich was held hostage.] Most importantly however, is the eyewitness record of Bolshevik terror in Odessa, by a young lady whose family was grotesquely victimized. To escape Bolshevik wrath which had recently claimed the lives of many of the 'Romanov' line of family members, Duchess Maria, left Tsarkoie Selo near Saint Petersburg in July 1918, with her second husband Prince Sergei Mikhailovich Putyatin. They travelled by way of Orsha, Kiev, Odessa, and Kishinev, finally arriving in Bucharest in January 1919. While staying at the prestigious Hotel London [now the Bristol Hotel] built in 1899, in Odessa in November 1918, shortly after the German army had evacuated to Bolsheviks from the city, Maria spoke with a hotel servant girl named Niouscha who described violence and killing by the revolutionaries, and the loss of her family at their merciless hands. The account is 31 pages in length, with segments crossed out and edited, as if considered for publication. Finally, a nine page account written in Russian, 23 May 1919, describes a journey to a villa in Biarritz, France. This entry fits with her move from London to Paris, where she settled in 1920. The highlight of these pages is the unusually elaborate, candid account of the gratuitous and violent atrocities effected by the Bolshevik radicals during the Russian Revolution. Excerpts from the text pertaining to Bolshevik rule over Ukraine: "I had this story from a maid servant of the best hotel in Odessa. I asked her once what she thought of the Bolsheviks when I was staying in Odessa when this town had just been delivered from the hands of the bloodsucking Lords called the Bolsheviks, delivered, strange to the say the word, by our enemies of yesterday..." "It was of course very hard to feel that the Germans who had killed so many thousands of Russians... were to say ruling us, but the reign of terror had been so dreadful and the horror seen and heard if, so unimaginably cruel that it was unmistakably a relief to be able to breathe without feeling that behind the door may be a Bolshevik..." "... even our enemy bring some order into our poor ulcerated country... " "... she was a peasant girl, her father was a well to do peasant of the Odessa district... she burst out crying and started telling me her story:" "Oh Madam, she [Odessa hotel servant] said - don't mention those bloodthirsty murderers - they have reduced my father to poverty, they have killed my brother for not enlisting in the Red Army and they have taken the man I loved away from me by making him a brute such as they themselves are..." "My father owned a mill and some cattle and was living happily and quietly far from politics... selling his flower [flour] to the Government... my brother had been at the war and sent home after hospital... not fit to go back to the front... " "... came the sudden news of the revolution, of our czar having been dethroned... bloodshed going on in the capital." "there arrived to our village an unknown man... started talking to us... told us we ought all be happy of what had happened for we had got our freedom now... promised us we will all be happy... going to rule ourselves... we did not quite understand... especially some of the sonorous speeches of the revolutionary propagandists..." "Some months passed... everybody was speaking of general elections nobody seemed to understand well what was going on..." "meanwhile the flour was not selling and we were getting short of money... had to sell the few cattle we had..." "... I got a letter from my father saying that my brother had been killed and the mill burned down with all the flour in it... called my father names saying that he was part of the old regime and will have to pay for it..." "That evening the Stepan and a batch of old village crooks who had been let out of prisons at the beginning of the revolution came over to my father, all very drunk and calling him a contra-bolshevik and his son a deserter, pulled them out of the house and tied my mother and father together and they burned my brother... After that they set fire to the house and mill and left my father and mother together helpless seeing their son and all their fortune burned. It was my father's sister and her husband who saved the two old people and carried them to their house..." "I came back to town... thought I still have my good fate. Mitrophan he will soon marry... and help me sustain my father and mother, But... he was very changed, he had left his work saying that now nobody need work for everybody will be rich... I found out he simply drank and helped the Tovarish catching robbing and killing bourgeoisie." "One day ... invited to dinner on the Almas, a cruiser standing in Odessa that served for the Bolsheviks as an execution place... I did not want to go... he said there would be no harm... a cinema after dinner... what I saw I shall never forget in all my life." "When the dinner was finished one of their leaders a savage looking ex convict stood up and said well now we shall go to the moving pictures... down to the officers cabins and all at once heard a most heart rending scream..." "... the Trophan pushed me on... so half fainting I went on, the leader shouting in a drunken voice... unlocked the door... And to my horror stricken eyes there appeared... tied to the walls of the cabin I saw 8 live skeletons with very haggard eyes half standing half lying against the walls swaying to and fro, dying, left only to mechanically make the sign of the cross with their wrists without stopping... one of them I recognized to be a young officer of the navy not quite 19 years of age, his tongue hanging out of his mouth smacking it with thirst and hunger..." "This sight was so ghastly and I could not stand it that I fainted away and when I came to myself I was lying on the deck... now I understood... I got here and was taken ill with brain fever where I lay half dying for weeks - and the next thing I remember the Germans had taken over and Mitrophan was shot... jolly glad I was..." "With those words she burst out crying again... this is the truthful story I heard that made me shudder with horror... only one of the many thousands of awful facts going on in our poor country... a country infected by such savage barbaric anarchy as is going on in our Russia..." "... Writing an article against Bolshevism was not in... I did not try to work out a romantic story... the true facts... happening under the reign of blood are a strong argument against the danger of Bolshevism... they show us more plainly what ghastly picture all Europe risks to live through as long as Bolshevism is not crushed..." End Excerpts. The Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (1890-1958) - the most likely owner and author of this volume, and Prince Andrei Alexandrovich of Russia (1897-1981) - whose wife Elisabetta ammassed a substantial collection of important family papers, are second cousins, their great grandfather being Emperor Nichola I. All three parties, and their families who had not yet been killed by the Bolsheviks, fled Russia to live in exile. Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (1890-1958), is the daughter of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia (1860-1919), the grand-daughter of Tsar Alexander II of Russia [Alexander Nikolaevich Romanov], and the great-grand-daughter of Nicholas I [Nicholas Pavlovich Romanov]. She led a most exciting life and travelled extensively throughout Western Europe, Russia, and lived for a few years in the America. At the time of the February Bourgeois Democratic Revolution (1917) Maria Pavlovna was in Pskov working as a nurse, and her soon-to-be husband Prince Sergei Mikhailovich Putyatin in Moscow. Maria left for Petrograd to find safety with her father at the village of Tsarskoye Selo, which then primarily comprised the residence of the Russian imperial family. [Its name means "Tsar's Village" and is now part of the town of Pushkin, conserved as a World Heritage Site]. Maria Pavlovana married Prince Sergei Mikhailovich Putyatin on 19 September [O.S. 6 September] 1917, in Catherine the Great's Pavlovsk Palace, Saint Petersburg. Following the Bolshevik's successful coup of Moscow's Winter Palace in November 1917, the couple made a risky journey to remove some of Maria's jewels from the state bank. They returned to Petrograd with their lives, but without the jewels. In the spring 1918, the couple moved to a cottage in Tsarkoe Selo to be closer to her father who was under house arrest. On July 8, 1918, she gave birth to a son, Prince Roman Sergeievich Putyatin. [He would survive only one year, to 29 July 1919] On 18 July 1918 Maria's half-brother, Prince Vladimir Paley, and her aunt, Princess Elizabeth, were murdered by the Bolsheviks. With the situation quickly deteriorating for the Romanovs remaining in Russia under the Bolshevik regime, Maria Pavlovna decided to flee, leaving her infant born only nine days earlier, under the care of her in-laws. With her husband and his brother, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna left Tsarkoie Selo in late July 1918. Without travel documents and fearing to be arrested at any stop, they travelled by train for two nights and one day. On August 4, they reached Orsha, in today's Belarus, where they joined numerous other refugees. From the train station, they went straight to the frontier of German occupied Ukraine. Maria had concealed, inside a bar of soap, a Swedish document identifying her as a former royal of that country, which granted her entrance into the Ukraine. From there, they continued south until reaching Kiev were new adventures followed. In November 1918, the fugitives made their way to Odessa. After reaching Kishinev, Moldavia, they received an invitation from Queen Marie of Romania, Maria's first cousin, who had used Joseph Whiteside Boyle to track them down and bring them to safety. In December 1918, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna and her second husband arrived in Bucharest staying at a local hotel until in January 1919, they were given private apartments at the Cotroceni Palace as guest of the Romanian Queen. Stricken with influenza, the grand duchess arrived in Romania beginning her life in exile. Maria Pavlovna's parents-in-law arrived in Bucharest with her infant son Roman, and once she obtained a travel visa, Maria Pavlovna left with Putyatin for Paris finding a house in Passy. Her first years of exile were financed by the sale of the jewels she had had smuggled to Sweden before escaping Russia. In exile, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna lived briefly in Bucharest, and then in London, before she settled in Paris in 1920. In the 1920s, she opened Kitmir, an embroidering fashion atelier. In 1923, she divorced her second husband and in 1928 she emigrated to New York City, where she published two books of memoirs: The Education of a Princess (1930), and A Princess in Exile (1932). Elisabetta Ruffo-Sasso, Grand Duchess of Russia (1886-1940) [Donna Elisaveta Fabrizievna Ruffo, Duchesa di Sasso-Ruffo; Elisabetta Ruffo Di Saint Antimo], from whose archive this volume appeared, was born on 26 December 1886 in Snamenskoje, near Kharkov, Republic of Crimea, Ukraine, the daughter of Don Fabrizio Ruffo, Duke of Sasso-Ruffo and Princess Natalia Alexandrovna Mescherskaya (a descendant of the famous Stroganov family). Little is known about her, although she published many papers for periodicals, covering a wide variety of topics. She married Major General Alexander Alexandrovitch Friederici (1878-1916) on 17 January 1907 at Tsarskoie Selo, Russia. She and Aleksandr Friederici had one daughter and were divorced before 1916. A few years later, on 12 June 1918 at Yalta, Crimea, "Elsa" as her fiancé called her, married Prince Andrei Alexandrovich of Russia (1897-1981), son of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich of Russia (1866-1933) "known as Sandro," grandson of Grand Duke Michael Nikolaevich of Russia (1832-1909), and the great-grandson of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia. He was also the eldest nephew of Nicholas II of Russia, the last Tsar. His mother was Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia. The couple had met in St Petersburg in 1916, and began their relationship in 1917, after Prince Andrei's family moved to his father's estate palace "Kichkine" on Cape Ai-Todor, in Gaspra village in Crimea, which was only 11 kilometers from Yalta, and the home of Elisabetta. In doing so, they escaped the fate of many relatives killed by the Bolsheviks, however safety in the Crimea would not last long. Prince Andrei's family initially objected to the union, however when Elisabetta became pregnant, they were permitted to marry, on 12 June 1918 in the family chapel at Ai-Todor, in the presence of his family, including his grandmother the Dowager Empress. It was not possible for them to receive the blessing of Prince Andrei's uncle, Nicholas II of Russia, as he was being held in captivity in Yekaterinburg. One month later, still in captivity, the last reigning Emperor, Nicholas II of Russia, was killed by the Bolsheviks, along with his wife and children. For a brief time in November-December 1918, Prince Andrei was imprisoned, along with his parents, grandmother the Dowager Empress, and a large number of other Romanovs relatives, being held at Dulber, at a palace in Crimea belonging to Grand Duke Peter Nikolaevich of Russia. In December 1918, German troops invaded the peninsula and liberated the Romanovs. Immediately, Elisabetta being pregnant with their first child, the couple left Russia with Prince Andrei's father Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich, boarding the British destroyer HMS Forsythe. His father planned to attend the Paris Peace Conference, representing the Romanovs and seeking support for the White Army from western Europe. Most of the surviving family members would escape in April 1919, on Royal Navy ship HMS Marlborough. They lived for a couple of years in France where their two eldest children were born. Elisabetta and Andrei would have three children together, and later move to England to live with the prince's mother, Grand Duchess Xenia, at a "grace and favour" residence provided by the British royal family, first at Frogmore and later at Hampton Court. Elisabetta died on 29 October 1940 at age 53 at Wilderness House, Hampton Court, London, some sources claiming cancer, others claiming sustained injuries from an air raid, as the cause of her death. In early 1917, the Romanov dynasty whose indirect line could be traced back to the old Romanov boyars of 1613, had 65 members. During the bloody revolution 18 of them were killed. The rest fled to safety, most of which on the Royal Navy ship HMS Marlborough. On 5 April 1919, HMS Marlborough arrived in Sevastopol before proceeding to Yalta the following day. Embarking the ship were Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna and other members of the Russian Imperial Family including Grand Duke Nicholas and Prince Felix Yusupov aboard in Yalta on the evening of the 7th. The Empress refused to leave unless the British also evacuated wounded and sick soldiers, along with any civilians that also wanted to escape the advancing Bolsheviks. The Russian entourage aboard Marlborough numbered approximately 80 people, including 44 members of the Royal Family and nobility, with a number of governesses, nurses, maids and manservants, plus several hundred cases of luggage. A very detailed list of Russian Imperial passengers on HMS Marlborough can be found on the internet. The Bolsheviks were a faction of the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP) which split apart from the Menshevik faction at the Second Party Congress in 1903. The Bolsheviks were the majority faction in a crucial vote, hence their name. Founded by Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov, by 1905 they formed a mass organization primarily of workers under a democratic internal hierarchy governed by the principle of democratic centralism, who considered themselves the leaders of the revolutionary working class of Russia. Their beliefs and practices were often referred to as Bolshevism. The group ultimately became the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and came to power in Russia during the October Revolution phase of the Russian Revolution of 1917, then founding the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. In 1922 the latter become the chief constituent of the Soviet Union. . Very Good.

        Autograph letter signed "D.M." to the American pianist, educator, composer, and arranger Livingston Gearhart

      - 1 page. Folio (ca. 279 x 215 mm.). N.d. In black ink. In English. Milhaud very enthusiastically thanks Livingston for his "kind collaboration," and will send a 2-piano version of some of his Songs as soon as it is photostated. He includes greetings for Livingston's wife, Virginia Morley, for whom his Song arrangements are presumably also intended. He will come in December, and hopes to see Livingston often."10000000 thanks. You acted very wonderfully and I jumped on my desk and made a 2 pianos version of three numbers of my Songs which I intended to do for months. I think you will like those little pieces. The Russian-River-Pianist asked me only the rights of the 1st performance and no exclusivity. You will be able to play 'his' piece after January if you wish. I am too glad to send you new old pieces because you [and Virginia] are both artists that I love and admire."Slightly worn; minor edge tears; creased at folds and corners; tape repairs to central fold of blank verso with minor remnants of former mount to upper margin. "A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, [Milhaud's] music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online."Gearhart (1916-1996) is probably best known for his hit arrangement of the classic 'Dry Bones' and his 'Session Series' of skills-building books. Gearhart attended the Curtis Institute of Music. Subsequent studies in France included composition with Nadia Boulanger, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud and piano with Robert Cadadesus and Isodor Philipp. During 1941 to 1954, the two-piano team of [Virginia] Morley and Gearhart performed over 2000 concerts throughout the US and Canada in addition to recording for Columbia Masterworks and Decca Records. Gearhart also made numerous TV and radio appearances on the Fred Waring Show, for which he wrote as staff arranger. In 1955 Gearhart joined the University of Buffalo Music Faculty, retiring to Professor Emeritus status in 1985." Composer Biographies on Hal Leonard Corporation online.

      John Murray, London 1916 - Doorly, Gerald. THE VOYAGES OF THE ¿MORNING¿. London, 1916, John Murray, First U.K. Edition. XX, 224 pp, folding map, frontispiece, 6 pp of music scores, and 21 other illustrations. This is by far the rarest of all the primary accounts from the ¿heroic period¿ of Antarctic exploration. Doorly was Third Officer on Scott¿s relief ship the Morning in 1902-3 and 1903-4, serving under Capt. William Colbeck, who had sailed with Borchgrevink, and under Second Officer Edward Evans. Colbeck was going to write an account of the voyages but when this didn¿t happen Doorly undertook the effort around 10 years later. He produced not only a very interesting, pleasant and readable firsthand account but also one of the scarcest books of Antarctic exploration. The book records the discovery of Scott Island and the first landing on Beaufort Island, and personal impressions of the Southern party upon their return. Not in Spence. A very scarce title indeed, and a difficult item to obtain in any condition. Original blue cloth, vignette (penguin and chick) on upper cover. Boards marked and spotted, somewhat scuffed and edges waterstained, a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities, with the spine sunned. Recased with new endpapers. Provenance with prize label pasted to free endpaper, first prize in naval history exam in 1923 awarded by Otago branch of The Navy League. Navy league emblem in gilt on rear board. Condition VG minus. NZ$1,200 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald.

      8vo., pp. 20 in unbound gatherings, loose in cloth backed marbled paper covered boards. First leaf with wood engraved ornamental border printed in green illuminated in gold. Title page and pp.2 - 5 a little browned, otherwise a very good copy. First Leonard Jay edition, limited to 100 numbered copies initialled by Jay. The production of thie edition was disrupted by WW1. "Owing to the War the artist was unable to complete the full number of copies, with the first word in burnished gold. Some copies were done in other colours, but the full issue was not completed" (Potter 150). This copy is one of those with the fine wood engraved border printed in green and with the word "Wake" illuminated in burnished gold. The sheets come loose in a cloth backed marbled paper covered boards, possibly the original binding although without the gatherings having been sewn in. Potter in his bibliography describes the binding as ""decorative paper boards, label on side". These boards do not have the label but do also match the dimensions given in Potter. Leonard Jay taught at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and was later the head of the Birmingham School of Printing.

        History of the First Regiment Minnesota Volunteer Infantry 1861-1864. With maps and illustrations

      "Stillwater, Minn": "Easton & Masterman, printers". 1916. "First edition, 8vo, pp. [1], 508; frontispiece portrait of Gov. Alexander Ramsey, 5 other portraits, 1 plate showing 3 portraits (including Christopher B. Heffelfinger - see below), 4 plates of monuments, 2 folding maps, and 1 map in the text; original blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine; cracking in the cloth in the top half of the upper joint; hinges cracked; all else very good and sound. This copy with an important inscription: ""James Ford Bell, Jr. from Grandmother Heffelfinger, August 14, 1916."" James Ford Bell, Jr. was the eldest son of the founder of General Mills, and what is now the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota. James, Jr. was known locally as the CEO of Red Owl Food Store chain, and was also a noted conservationist. His ""Grandmother Heffelfinger"" was the wife of Christopher B. Heffelfinger, one of the authors of this book, who from 1861 through 1864 served in Company D of the famous First Minnesota Infantry Regiment, rising in rank from sergeant to captain shortly after the Battle of Gettysburg. After serving the full term of his three-year enlistment, Heffelfinger was mustered out at Fort Snelling in May 1864. After a brief appointment as a relief agent in the United States Sanitary Commission in 1864, he re-enlisted in April 1865 and was appointed a major in the First Minnesota Regiment of Heavy Artillery. Heffelfinger died in 1915 while this book was about to go to press, although he did read through the manuscript and made suggestions ""which have been adopted in the text as it now appears."" Searles, Taylor, Heffelfinger, and two others (also deceased) were the members of the ""Coville Commission"" who had charge of the preparation of this history."

        Scarce Autograph Letter Signed, in German, on small 8vo stationery card, "Sköien near Kristiania," n.d. but most likely late 1916

      - Important for its art association, in our letter Munch requests a subscription to the new art magazine "Das Kunstblatt" which published an article about him in its first issue. At the end of our art association letter, he signs in full, "Edvard Munch." Translated in full, "Dear Sir, I would like to subscribe to Kunstblatt [Art Journal] for one year and would like to start my subscription with the first issue. Respectfully, Evard Munch Sköien near Kristiania." "Das Kunstblatt" is a German art magazine, published in Weimar by Paul Westheim from 1917 until 1933. It was an important and influential periodical on contemporary art. The first issue came out in January of 1917 and in it was an article on Munch written by Gustav Schiefler, with whom Munch had a correspondence over a long period of time, from 1902 to 1935. Schiefler wrote the authoritative catalogue of Munch's graphic work, "Verzeichnis des Graphischen Werks Edvard Munchs bis 1906) (published in Berlin in 1907). Munch's request to "start my subscription with the first issue" suggests that he was writing just before the publication of the first issues which was in January of 1917, hence the date of this letter being late 1916 or possibly very early 1917. That, in addition to his having purchased and moved into his home at Ekely at Skoien near Kristiania in 1916. Munch bought the Ekely property at Skoien (or Skoyen) on the outskirts of Oslo which was, at the time, called Kristiana. It was called Kristiana and spelled with the "K"from 1877 until 1925 when it became known as Oslo. He lived at Ekely for the rest of his life. It was also in 1916 that the decorations for the University Aula were completed, at which point Munch began to have large outdoor studios built on his property for his large paintings. According to Wikipedia, Munch built onto Ekely to the point of it being a nearly self-sufficient estate. Munch letters are scarce. Sehr geehrter Herr Ich möchte gern auf Kunstblatt für ein Jahr abonnieren und möchte auch gern der Abonnement schon erste Monat anfangen. Mit vorzüglicher Hochachtung Edvard Munch Sköien n Kristiania ------ Dear Sir, I would like to subscribe to Kunstblatt [Art Journal] for one year and would like to start my subscription with the first issue. Respectfully, Evard Munch Sköien near Kristiania. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
