Description

    Johannes Brahms Autograph Letter Signed on a postcard, 5.5" x 3.5", Vienna, Austria, January 4, 1895. Penned in German, in full: "Dear Fr. Would you obtain another copy of Klinger's Fantasie for me? I already have the 300 Marks for it; so they are available should my credit have been shattered by the great bankruptcy. The corrected viola part is being returned today. Warm regards from your J.B." Brahms is likely ordering a copy of German artist Max Klinger's "Series upon the Theme of Christ and Fantasies upon the Finding of a Glove", which tells the parable of a young man's obsessive involvement with a woman's elbow-length glove. Addressed in his hand with a light vertical fold at center of card, ink has been smeared affecting a single word in the text of the letter as well as most of the address. Bold ink and in very good to near fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
