Wonderful manuscript from the German Romantic

German composer, conductor, pianist, guitarist, and critic, one of the first significant composers of the Romantic school (1786–1826). Autograph musical manuscript, signed at the top, “C. M. v. Weber,” one page both sides, 13.25 x 7.5, no date. Weber pens thirty-six bars of “Tafellied,” writing the text of the first verse of A. F. E. Langbein's ‘Der Zauberbaum [The Magic Tree]’ under the staves. The second, third, and fourth verses are penned in the margins. In very good condition, with a few vertical folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), several chips and tears to edges (affecting some of the writing), and some scattered soiling. Accompanied by a letter from the head of the music department of the Berlin State Library confirming authenticity. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
