Description:
Anniston, AL, 19 August 1887.. One page, in ink, on recto only of quarto sheet of onion skin paper. Punched in left margin, with small pin/tack losses at extreme fore- corners, small clipped biographical note affixed in upper margin, shallow tanning at margins, folds for mailing, otherwise good. Randall (1839 - 1908) is most widely remembered as the author of the poem "Maryland, My Maryland," which is also the reason for his being labelled the "Poet Laureate of the Lost Cause". It became a war hymn of the Confederacy after the poem's words were set to music during the Civil War by Jennie Cary. It later became the state song of Maryland, annually placed before the larger public outside the state's borders when played at the Preakness Stakes. The poem was first published on 26 April 1861, in the New Orleans newspaper, THE SUNDAY SENTINEL. Randall here responds to an autograph collector: "Dear Sir: I herewith send you two verses of [']My Maryland[']. I suppose you have seen the August [issue of the]… Read More

Description:
Bozen [Bolzano], Italy, [2 April 1897].. One and one half pages (22 lines), in ink on recto and verso of top panel of folded octavo sheet of engraved letterhead of the "Hotel Victoria Bozen." Horizontal fold for mailing, short separation from outer margin at fold, otherwise very good, accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Rilke's hand. Rilke writes to his Munich friend, the German- American writer and future chemist/inventor, Nathan Sulzberger, then staying at the Britannia Hotel in Vienna. Sulzberger, raised in comfortable circumstances, had invited Rilke for a three week tour of Italy, but Rilke thought the offer too generous and they settled on a shorter stay in Venice. Rilke stayed with him for three days, then traveled to Bozen where he wrote Sulzberger this letter of thanks. George Schoolfield, in YOUNG RILKE AND HIS TIME (pp.281-2), discusses the context of this letter and its implications, as does Freedman, LIFE OF A POET: RAINER MARIA RILKE, (pp. 57, 58 and 73).
