Lot 567: LS, one page both sides, 4.5 x 7, June 23, 1907. Letter to Schlesinger's Music Publishers in Berlin. In part: "I have received the musical pieces you sent and give you my many thanks. If you haven't exhausted your friendliness, I request that you send me the musical pieces on the enclosed list." At this time Bartok's career was just getting started. He had just begun collecting folk songs in 1904, and his String Quartet No. 1 and short piano pieces from 1908 are the first to display his unique compositional voice. In fine condition, with some mild toning. RR Auction's Fine Autographs And Artifacts Auction 471 Wednesday, 9th March 2016 Estimate: $200-400
