My Life (Inscribed By Pianist Moriz Rosenthal)
(Rosenthal, Moriz) Duncan, Isadora

NY: Boni & Liveright, 1927. Blue cloth satmped in darker blue and gilt. INSCRIBED ON THE FRONT PASTEDOWN, "TO ________/ IN DEVOTED SYMPATHIES, VERY CORDIALLY/ MORIZ ROSENTHAL/ NEW YORK, MAY 3rd, 1928". Later printing. It is unclear as to why the famed concert pianist and pupil of Franz Liszt inscribed this copy of Duncan's autobiography with such sentiment but nonetheless, the inscription is in bold black ink on the front pastedown. A newspaper obituary of Rosenthal from 1946 is affixed to the front free endpaper opposite the inscription, causing some minor offsetting. Very good. No jacket. Hardcover (Item ID: E1143)
