SCHOENBERG, Arnold (1874-1951). Autograph letter signed ('Arnold Schönberg') to Herr Karnrath, Mödling bei Wien, 21 July 1904, responding to a request for advice about a contract with the publisher Max Marschalk: being in the country, Schoenberg does not have his own contract to hand, and even if he did, Karnrath could not expect him to copy it out ('ich schreibe ungern einen Brief, aber wie gar einen abschreiben! das können Sie mir nicht zumüten'); but Karnrath may have entire confidence in Marschalk to draw him up a similar or identical contract to that with Schoenberg ('Marschalk ist ein feiner man ...
