About this Item

This famed Italian contralto opera singer is considered one of the greatest of the 19th century, and was enormously popular in performances throughout Europe from the 1840s through the 1870s. Bold full signature ("Mari'a Pepoli nata Alboni") dated "Londra 12 Juglio 1872" (London, 12 june 1872) on a 4 3/4" X 1 3/4" slip. Very good. This has been neatly tipped to the blank lower margin of a handsome 6" X 9" steel engraved portrait of her -- a half-length likeness of a very young Alboni clutching a cape about her, a sheaf of rolled-up music in left hand. Interesting and attractive. Bookseller Inventory # 36990
