Scarce letter by the Romantic master, hoping the ‘devil won’t foil his plans’

ALS in Italian, signed “G. Verdi,” one page, 4.25 x 6.75, May 5, 1891. Letter to Italian novelist Edmondo de Amicis. Verdi writes that, as long as the ‘devil doesn’t foil his plans,’ he will arrive in Genoa on Saturday at 6 o’clock in the evening. He also makes a list for de Amicis: “No 1. Peppina, 2. Comm: De Amicis, 3. Contadino de St. Agata.” Matted with an unsigned postcard of Verdi to an overall size of 11.5 x 8.25. In fine condition, with a few pencil notations at the top. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Verdi’s hand. Verdi’s estate was at St. Agata, where he lived for over fifty years and owned a considerable amount of property. A coveted letter by the important composer. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
