    Description

    Richard Wagner Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 5" x 7" (sight), ink on paper, November 4, 1871, to Ernst Wilhelm Fritzsch a Leipzig publisher with whom Wagner worked. Wagner informs the publisher: "Today for the third day I have received no proofsheets. This worries me. It is vital to me that I also have a complete (good) copy of the second volume at my disposal by the 25th of this month, because then it can help me to a most important goal." The work in question is likely the second volume of Wagner's collected writings. Matted together with a sepia image of the composer and a descriptive plaque to an overall size of 21" x 21". Letter has a single flattened central fold and is in otherwise excellent condition.


    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
