"Luigi Arditi". Wales, Sept. 18, 1893. 6" h x 9.5" w. One page of album leaf. Excellent condition (very light sunning around edges).
A four-bar quotation from the Italian composer and conductor's Preghiera, which he has inscribed in Italian to the gentle Madamoiselle Clara Eissler with esteem and friendship. Arditi signs and dates the quotation at Craig-y-Nos Castle, Adelina Patti's private estate in Wales.
