About this Item

This Italian opera conductor supposedly conducted more grand opera performances than any other conductor in American history, often conducting eight performances a week (often without a score, working from memory) throughout North America for decades. IPS, 8" X 10", n.p., 1917 January 8. Near fine. Dramatic Apeda (New York) right-facing head and shoulders profile portrait of a young Peroni in suit and tie. Boldly signed and inscribed across the lower half (partly in dark area, making for fair contrast only) in black ink, in Italian: "A Miss Frances Boardman / offre per ricordo un suo / devoto ammiratore / nell'arta giornalistica / Carlo Peroni." Not translated. Quite handsome. Bookseller Inventory # 40557
