Place Published: New York
Date Published: 1891

Description: Exceptional and rare calling card, 2.5 x 4 inches, bearing his title "Kammervirtuose" and Royal Pianist with three bars from his classical composition "Spanish Serenade" of which Grunfeld jokingly titles it "Little Serenade," due to a lack of room to write out a more detailed title. Signed in full and dated "New York, Sunday 11/25/1891." Fine.

Comments: Grunfeld was an Austrian composer and prodigy pianist. In 1888 he was appointed Court Pianist to Emperor Wilhelm I of Germany. He was a major influence on German-Austrian classical composers for his entire life.

I couldn't believe how fast you sent me this wonderful item! I didn't expect it to have anything on children's cookery (my focus), but because Juliet Corson is SO important, I bought it. What a surprise to find a "Boys' and Girls' Kitchen" column, and a tiny personal fact about J's childhood. I hit the lottery, so to speak. I'm ordering tons of diamonds to fall from the sky on you some lovely warm day. Don't I wish I could do that... - Barbara Abbott
