        21 autograph letters (17), lettercards (1) and postcards (3), mostly signed.

      Various places, 1921 and 1922. - 4to and 8vo. Altogether 37 pp. Very comprehensive collection of private letters written to his last love, Rose Ader (1890-1955). "Between 1921 and 1923, Puccini enjoyed what was likely his last romantic fling when he fell passionately in love with a young German soprano, Rose Ader, for whom he created the part of Liù in his final work, ‚Turandot'" (The New Grove Dictionary). "My good and sweet Rosa", Puccini wrote on April 17, 1921, on one of his earliest letters to Rose, "I am deeply moved as I write you. I would wish to be able to tell you what I have in my heart - if only you could understand! Besides the distance which separates us there is the matter of the language which prevents us from saying all that we have in our hearts - what good fortune that I should have met you and what misfortune not to be able to speak together! I would have such riches in expression with which to express my great love! A love which will be with me all my life - you cannot imagine what an impression you made on me! Your languid eyes which when they looked at me strike my heart as though to seek an echo of an immense affection. I shall never be able to forge you - my Rosa what will happen to me. How can I bear being so far away. Yet it is necessary to suffer and to wait. Life is all one waiting and one suffering! Study, study, I beg you on my knees. Study with ardor and feverishly a little of my language. I believe that guided by the love that you have for me you will soon succeed in understanding me. That day will be one of the most beautiful ones of our life. Write to me even in German. I shall have your letter translated. If with the help of Mrs. S. you wish to write in French I shall not let the eyes of a stranger see your letter. I shall write you every week and even more often than that. How clearly I write! Never have I written in this manner - for you, my joy, I do everything [.]" (transl. from the Italian original). - Accompanied by 3 telegrams.

        LETTER FROM NEILL TO REILLY & LEE WITH RESPONSE

      Neill, John R.. NEILL,JOHN R. LETTER FROM NEILL TO REILLY & LEE WITH RESPONSE. This is a wonderful handwritten letter to Mr. Reilly of Reilly and Lee with Reilly's response typed on the side. Neill's letter is dated Jan. 12, 1922 and reads: "Dear F.K. Reilly - Am sending today the last lot of drawings, completing the illustrations for Kabumpo in Oz. Incidentally I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the mss. and making the pictures. After illustrating about seventeen Oz books I think it worthwhile to let you know this with my congratulations on having secured an author of such superior qualifications to continue the work of supplying the Oz books. Every feature of the child appeal is handled with the greatest skill. The whimsical humor the interest and the zip of the book makes me think it one of the very best Oz books so far. Sincerely Jno R. Neill." Reilly writes a typed response dated March 4th 1922: " Dear John, Packages of drawings for Children's Poems received O.K. They are satisfactory although I think they are uneven in merit; some are much better than others. Send in your bill and we we'll take care of you. With best regards, Very cordially, F.K. Reilly.

An den deutschen Schriftsteller und Autographensammler Eugen Wolbe über den Erwerb eines Manuskripts des großen italienischen Dichters Giacomo Leopardi: "Verehrter Herr Studienrat, vielen Dank für Ihre Freundlichkeit die mir diesmal besonders wertvoll ist. Denn ich möchte den Leopardi um jeden Preis haben. In der Auction wird er wahrscheinlich (da ihn Fränkel nicht beschrieben hat) hoffentlich nur auf etwa 1500-2000 Mark gehen. Ich möchte Sie aber bitten, mir ihn auf jeden Fall zu erwerben, im Notfall bis 12.000 (Zwölftausend) Mark zu gehen [...] Mir liegt an diesem Leopardi, weil ich L. sehr liebe und gerade Verse selten sind; vor dem Krieg habe ich einmal einen, der 100 Lire kosten sollte (einen herrlichen!) um einen Tag versäumt. Sie wissen nun wohl aus eige ner Erfahrung, dass man wenn einem einmal ein Stück entgangen, mit besonderer Leidenschaft dann ein ähnliches erwerben will. Ich hoffe mich dann bei Ihnen für Ihre Mühe revancieren zu können, auch ein Rolland ist Ihnen gewiss: nur aus meiner eigenen Correspondenz will ich nichts nehmen , weil ich da ein kostbares Ganzes nicht zerstören mag: nur ihn bitten kann ich jetzt nicht, weil er mir eben schreibt, er sei vom Schreiben sosehr übermüdet. Aber es kommt schon eine Gelegenheit [...] Hoffentlich glückt es, das Stück billig zu erwerben (denn das Höchstlimit ist ja nur für den undenkbaren Fall, dass gerade aus Italien ein Leopardinarr so viel bieten würde, ich hoffe mit 1500 Mark davonzukommen und das Geld für die Henrici Auction zu sparen, deren Katalog ich noch nicht habe, die ich aber vielleicht persönlich besuche, wenn besondere Stücke für mich dabei sind) [...]". - Bei dem am 29. Mai 1922 bei der Auktion 22 des Antiquariats S. Martin Fraenkel, Berlin, durch Wolbe für Zweig erworbenen eigenhändigen Manuskript Leopardis handelt es sich um das heute in The British Library, London (Sig. Zweig MS. 167) verwahrte Gedicht "XXXVIII. Del greco di Simonide". - Vgl. Matuschek, Zauber der Schrift, S. 268, Nr. 453.

        LETTERA AUTOGRAFA FIRMATA. 2 pp., (mm. 134x215), datata (dal timbro postale) Gunsbach 4.5.1922, diretta a "Monsieur M.G.W. Sharo" ad Huddersfield, di 17 righe; in busta con indirizzo.

      Bella lettera. Ha ricevuto dal corrispondente una missiva piena di humour e ne è lieto. "Votre bonne hemeur m'a fait du bien dans ma fatigue..". Ed anche Schweitzer vuol far sfoggio del suo spirito "En vous écrivant j'emploierai toujours autant que possible des verbes irréguliers, pourque vous me compreniez plus facilement. Moi aussi j'aime beaucoup l'humour, car en Afrique que deviendrais - je sans cela.. Mais quand je serai obligé, seul en Afrique, d'etre en meme temps médecin et constructeur de mon Hopital, que les termites ont mangé, alors peut etre quelque fois mon humour faiblera. Je compte alors sur vous..". Ben conservata.

        THE FORSYTE SAGA

      1922 - [with autograph letter signed] London: William Heinemann, 1922. Original medium-green cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition (so combined and titled). The 1100-page Saga consists of Galsworthy's three novels THE MAN OF PROPERTY (1906), IN CHANCERY (1920) and TO LET (1921), connected by the two interludes "Indian Summer of a Forsyte" (1918) and "Awakening" (1920) -- and accompanied by Galsworthy's new Preface for this edition. This was a big hit as it came out, and became a hit again when it appeared as a TV mini-series in 1967; it has more recently (2002-03) been a mini-series again.~This copy is of the first impression, with the genealogical table pulling out to the right. It is in fine condition, and includes the rather scarce dust jacket (also in fine condition). We do not often encounter THE FORSYTE SAGA in this condition. Marrot pp. 35-36. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~Loosely inserted is a brief-but-curious autograph letter signed, "en voyage August 16, 1928" on stationery of Birnam Hotel (Dunkeld), curtly addressed to "Madam": I am sending you herewith the very last assistance I can give your husband or yourself. I am very sorry for your plight, but I cannot go on." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
