Notes and References

  1. Known only from an extract found in a document in the archive of Louisa von Westernhagen at the former Tschaikowsky-Studio in Hamburg which is now held at Universitätsbibliothek Tübingen (Sign. Mk 94). Frau von Westernhagen is believed to have drawn up this typed document in the 1960s. It is 2 pages long, contains excerpts copied from various letters and bears the title: "Über die seit 1945 zur Auktion gekommenen Tschaikowsky-Autographen bei J. A. Stargardt, Marburg, Bahnhofstr. 26" [Regarding the Tchaikovsky autographs which have been auctioned since 1945 by J. A. Stargardt in Marburg]. See Der Briefwechsel des Hamburger Verlegers Daniel Rahter mit P. I. Čajkovskij 1887-1891 (2001), p. 88, which corrects Westernhagen's transcribed date of "Klin, 30.VI.1878".
