Garbo’s 1980 date book

Garbo’s personally-owned and -used 1980 date book made in England by Leathersmith, 2.5 x 4, featuring black leather covers gilt-stamped with the year, copiously filled out in pencil by Garbo, writing entries for a total of 70 dates. Among these entries are: January 7, “Cumman Yes, Cutting Pipes Closet”; February 18, "Tony's Birthday"; February 22, "LAX 3 oclock"; June 23, “Last Acony Doors, Dr Defeo 3 oclock, Skin Doctor"; July 29, “See Maloja Oberencadin"; October 17, “Hirshfeld 1, Bertalat Cummantill NY”; and December 10, “Carpets Back.” On a page headed 'Dates to Remember,' Garbo had written in German, "ich weiss nicht worum—ich weiss nicht wohin mich wonderst dass ich noch lustig bin," which roughly translates to 'I don't know what—I don't know where that I am still surprised me.' In fine condition. From the estate of Greta Garbo. The famed caricaturist Al Hirschfeld produced an elegant etching of Garbo in 1982, showing the great actress in profile with her chin gently resting atop her hand. A fine intimately personal item from the reclusive legend. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
