Description


Extraordinary triple AMQS on a light blue 6.25 x 9.75 sheet of his personal letterhead, inscribed at the top in fountain pen to "Jandor Klein," and signed at the conclusion, "Giacomo Puccini, 2.1.08." Puccini pens brief musical quotations from his three most beloved operas, writing the titles above: "Boheme," "Butterfly," and "Tosca." Addressed on the reverse in Puccini's hand. While other single AMQS from Puccini have sold in the past, this is the only document we know of where he inscribes scores for all three famous operas, making it a truly amazing and incredibly rare piece of history. Archivally double-matted and beautifully framed using museum quality glass with a photo of Puccini to an overall size of 13 x 23.25. In very good to fine condition, with mailing folds, some light creasing, and faint staining along the left edge. Immensely desirable and undoubtedly one-of-a-kind, this unprecedented triplet of musical quotations represents the sum of Puccini's most renowned, revered, and towering masterpieces. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
