        Autograph letter signed "Lehár Fr" to the celebrated soprano Maria Jeritza

      "Liebe, du Himmel auf Erden" is an aria from Lehár's operetta Paganini (1926), made into a film in 1934. Maria Jeritza performed the song as part of a shortwave broadcast for an American audience in 1935. Lehár's operetta Schön ist die Welt was first performed in 1930 (a revision of his earlier work Endlich allein, 1914). Like other successful composers of the era, Léhar was close to Maria Jeritza (1887-1982), the most celebrated soprano from the final years of the Habsburg empire. She appeared regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York from 1921 on.. In blue ink on the verso of a postal card with unidentified motif; printed credits to "Phot. Ing. F Mayer." Dated September 29, 1935. In German (with translation). Lehár thanks his correspondent (who is not named but may be identified by circumstantial evidence as the soprano Maria Jeritza) for her interpretation of the song "Liebe du Himmel auf Erden" (Love, you heaven on earth) from his operetta Paganini. He is looking forward to seeing her as Tosca soon. He announces that he will travel to Paris imminently to attend a performance of his operetta Schön ist die Welt: "Still under the spell of the song 'Liebe du Himmel auf Erden' so wonderfully rendered by you I am writing you this letter, and I thank you cordially for the artistic enjoyment... Early next week I will travel to Paris. Schön ist die Welt is going to be performed at the Theâtre Paisé Lyrique." From the collection of Maria Jeritza. Slightly worn, creased and smudged; faint red ink stains.

Issued simultaneously with a signed limited edition of twenty-eight copies. A fine copy of a striking book, reflecting the artistic revival of English wood engraving between the wars. Quarto, original full black cloth lettered in green, pastedown wood engraving of a circus ring on upper board, yellow pictorial endpapers. Wood-engraved vignettes on half title, frontispiece, and title page; twenty full-page wood engravings of animals throughout text. Very light wear to cloth.

Sarebbe errato voler vedere nella rivista diretta da Alberto Carocci, una organicità che non aveva. Bonsanti, Chiaromonte, Comisso, Gianfranco Contini, Giacomo Debenedetti, Ferrata, Leo Ferrero, C.E. Gadda, Montale, Noventa, Solmi, Stuparich, Ungaretti, Vittorini, sono soltanto alcuni dei nomi che si trovano scorrendo gli indici di Solaria. Al “proustismo” di Bonsanti ed altri si contrappone la nascente vocazione narrativa di un Vittorini; a Montale e Ungaretti - interpreti dell'uomo in crisi - Giacomo Noventa, poeta dei grandi motivi della tradizione classica, e così si potrebbe continuare per molto. Ma al di là di questi nomi e di queste indicazioni c'è qualcosa che si possa definire lo “spirito” di Solaria? Forse l'esigenza, comune a tutti, di una letteratura europea, la nostalgia dell'Europa, che proprio allora stava precipitando irrimediabilmente verso il disastro. Così “Antologia critica di Solaria” (Lerici Edit., 1958).

Slightly worn; tear to verso of blank outer edge of title repaired; corners of some leaves slightly creased; minor repair to blank outer edge of final leaf. First Edition.The spellings "orkester" (passim) and "kor" (p. 291) suggest that the performance for which this copy was used either took place in Scandinavia or was led by a Scandinavian conductor.Georg Büchner's (1813-1837) fragmentary drama Woyzeck [not "Wozzeck"] was written in 1836, but it remained unpublished until 1879 and did not see the stage before Max Reinhardt produced it in Munich in 1913. Its Viennese premiere, in 1914, prompted Berg to compose his opera?the first atonal opera in history and arguably the most successful one to this day."Wozzeck was an epoch-making work that broke new ground musically, emotionally and dramatically. If Büchner's play was discovered and first performed at a time when its techniques and concerns seemed strikingly contemporary, it also appeared at a moment when its extreme states were peculiarly suited to Berg's musical language - an atonal language that, constantly hovering on the edge of tonal confirmation, becomes a perfect musical metaphor for the emotional and mental state of the opera's chief protagonist. The world that the opera presents is a projection of the tortured mind of Wozzeck himself: a world without normality or humanity and peopled by grotesques, a haunted world of strange, hallucinatory voices and visions and of natural phenomena indifferent to the human tragedy being played out." Douglas Jarman in Grove online [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "Lehár Fr" to the celebrated soprano Maria Jeritza

      1926. "Liebe, du Himmel auf Erden" is an aria from Lehár's operetta Paganini (1926), made into a film in 1934. Maria Jeritza performed the song as part of a shortwave broadcast for an American audience in 1935. Lehár's operetta Schön ist die Welt was first performed in 1930 (a revision of his earlier work Endlich allein, 1914). Like other successful composers of the era, Léhar was close to Maria Jeritza (1887-1982), the most celebrated soprano from the final years of the Habsburg empire. She appeared regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York from 1921 on.. In blue ink on the verso of a postal card with unidentified motif; printed credits to "Phot. Ing. F Mayer." Dated September 29, 1935. In German (with translation).Lehár thanks his correspondent (who is not named but may be identified by circumstantial evidence as the soprano Maria Jeritza) for her interpretation of the song "Liebe du Himmel auf Erden" (Love, you heaven on earth) from his operetta Paganini. He is looking forward to seeing her as Tosca soon. He announces that he will travel to Paris imminently to attend a performance of his operetta Schön ist die Welt:"Still under the spell of the song 'Liebe du Himmel auf Erden' so wonderfully rendered by you I am writing you this letter, and I thank you cordially for the artistic enjoyment... Early next week I will travel to Paris. Schön ist die Welt is going to be performed at the Theâtre Paisé Lyrique."From the collection of Maria Jeritza.Slightly worn, creased and smudged; faint red ink stains.

The story that follows will be of surpassing interest to those who are interested in the glory and grandeur of the 'Old South' and in the romantic and tragic history of Brazoria County, which for a time, was early Texas, and which the author has woven into a historical narrative that contains much which should be preserved for posterity."
