        Maschinenschriftlicher Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Pacific Palisades, 24. 1. 1946. - Mit gedrucktem Briefkopf. 1 Bl. 27 x 18,5 cm. An Mrs. Edda Hankamer am Seton Hill College in Pennsylvania (1895-1982, gest. in Las Vegas; 1925-33 Privatdozentin für Germanistik in Köln, seit 1945 Professur Seton Hall College, 1953 University of Tennessee), Gattin des Germanisten und Publizisten Paul Hankamer, der nach Kriegsende eine Schussverletzung erlitt, der er wenig später erlag (München, 29. Juni 1945). Thomas Mann antwortet auf den Brief mit der Todesnachricht und beklagt, "dass er glaubte, unserem Lande eine Treue halten zu muessen, die es in diesem Zustand, in dem es geraten ist, keineswegs verdiente. Er hat für diese Treue mit seinem wertvollen Leben bezahlen muessen". - Desweiteren berichtet er von Überlegungen, in die Schweiz zu reisen - meint aber, "die Verhältnisse dort waehrend dieser Zeit noch schlimmer und anarchischer werden als sie schon sind". - Edda Hankamer, die bereits am 1. Oktober 1938 über Rotterdam in die USA emigrierte, ersuchte Mann, ihr bei der Abwicklung des Nachlasses ihres Gatten behilflich zu sein. Thomas Mann weicht höflich aus und ergänzt: "Immerhin koennte sich die Moeglichkeit bieten einen Dritten damit zu betrauen, und wenn ich hoere, dass einer meiner Soehne, die sich noch in amerikanischen Diensten in Europa aufhalten, wieder nach Muenchen kommt, so will ich ihn gern veranlassen, sich der Sache nach Moeglichkeit anzunehmen". - Zu dem Literaturwissenschaftler Paul Hankamer vgl. NDB 7, 617. - Gefaltet, unterschiedlich gebräunt, kleine Randläsuren.

        The Complete Poems and Stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

      New York, NY: Alfred A Knopf, 1946., 1946. FIRST BORZOI EDITION. Two volumes. Octavo, pp.x, 542; x, 1087. Illustrated with suitably arresting colour plates by McKnight Kauffer. Bound in recent half blue morocco, the original cloth boards laid down, iwth raised bands, gilt compartments, two red labels with gilt titles to spine. In a slipcase, bound in blue cloth. Internally clean and fresh, with no signs of wear, plates clean, bright, and vivid. Binding is tight and presentable. A handsome set of the works of the extraordinary Gothic savant. When considering his traumatic and brief life story, it is easy to see how his sensibility for the darker side of human nature arose - but this still fails to explain the sheer fecundity of his imagination, or the brilliance of his writing.

        Portrait photograph of soprano Camilla Williams

      New York, 1946. Bust portrait in profile. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 25.2 x 18.7 cm. (approximately 9-7/8 x 7-3/8 inches). Fine. Atelier stamp on verso, and docketed in pen, giving the name of the sitter, date, and print reference ("III - cc - 15"). Bust portrait in profile. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 25.2 x 18.7 cm. (approximately 9-7/8 x 7-3/8 inches). She Broke the Color Barrier in American Opera. In 1946, the year Van Vechten shot this fine profile portrait of the young soprano, Camilla Williams (b. 1922) became the first Afro-American to sign a contract with a major American opera company (the New York City Opera). Her debut with the company was as the title role in Madame Butterfly; she was also the first to appear in a role not specifically created for black performer. Over the next six years Williams was to perform Nedda in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, Mimì in Puccini's La Bohème, and Verdi's Aida. In 1954, she appeared as Madame Butterfly with London's Sadler's Wells Opera and later the Vienna State Opera. Miss Williams was also a distinguished concert artist, and performed on tour throughout the United States, in fourteen African countries, in South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, New Zealand, and Australia. From 1977 to 1997, she was professor of voice at Indiana University's School of Music. William died January 29, 2012 The Library of Congress possesses two other images of Williams from this same session; both are half-length views, and neither conveys the intimate detail of this warm bust portrait, which is inscribed to Saul Mauriber, Van Vechten's assistant. From the Estate of Saul Mauriber, Van Vechten's assistant, and the editor/compiler of PORTRAITS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF CARL VAN VECHTEN (1978); EXTRAVAGANT CROWD: Carl Van Vechten's Portraits of Women (Beinecke Library, Exhibition Catalogue, 2003)
