He has signed with the desirable "C. Th. Zahle." Light pencil notations and one horizontal fold; still very good condition.

Comments: Prime Minister of Denmark during World War I who was thrown out of office in 1920 and deposed by King Christian X for having handed over to the Germans the Danish cities of Schleswig and Flensburg. Zahle felt that both cities had high populations of German refugees and settlers and that Denmark could do without their problem. During World War II Hitler remembered this gesture and allowed Zahle to conduct his affairs in occupied Denmark without Nazi interference bringing further speculation of treasonous behavior. Zahle died three months after the second world war ended and was never made accountable for his actions.

I must confess that one of the best parts of any trip I make to NYC is to visit your bookstore and be received with such kindness. Today I had two big pleasures: Argosy and Renne Flemming's performance... If I have time on this trip I will again pass by your store again, otherwise I will contact you from Brazil. Best regards, - Eduardo
