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.

Dear Argosy, I just finished watching TV. Now I know there is the old books store called Argosy in Manhattan, New York. I've been looking for first edition of Little Women written by Louisa May Alcott. Do you have it? If you do please let me know. - Itoko Kadooka
