Description

Incredibly rare quartet of quotations in Puccini's hand: "La Boheme," "La Manon," "La Tosca," and "Mme. Butterfly"

Amazing quadruple AMQS on an off-white 9.25 x 12.25 musically lined sheet, signed and inscribed at the conclusion, "Giacomo Puccini, a Madame Farcounet, Nice 23.3.06." Above, Puccini pens two-to-four bars from four of his most beloved operas, writing the titles above: "La Boheme," "La Manon," "La Tosca," and "Mme. Butterfly." While other single AMQS from Puccini have sold in the past—and we have encountered a singular triple-quote example—this is the lone four-quote autograph from Puccini we have ever witnessed. Large in size and boasting bold, beautiful writing from the opera master, it is an unprecedented and truly exquisite piece. In fine condition, with intersecting folds. A stunning quartet of musical quotations that represents the sum of Puccini's most renowned, revered, and towering masterpieces.
