A quote from 'Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks'

Crisply penned AMQS on an off-white 5.5 x 3.75 postcard, neatly signed above in ink, "Dr. Richard Strauss." Strauss pens two bars from the tone poem 'Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche [Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks].' In fine condition, with a small tack hole and postal impression to the upper left corner. Strauss premiered his witty 'Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche' in 1895, described in the New Grove Dictionary as 'a masterpiece on every level, as a programmatic description of the rogue's pranks in detail, as a generalized portrait of a scamp, or as an example of musical humour.'
