About this Item: New Leaf Press, 1977. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hardback Book with Dust Jacket is Signed By the Author Maria Von Trapp. Stated Fourth Printing from January 1977. Book is in Very Good condition with a tight binding and mostly clean crisp pages. There is some soiling or foxing to the outside page ends, but this does not effect the actual inside pages. I have noticed this also on other copies of this book so it appears to be more of a shelf wear foxing issue. Book is nicely signed on the first blank end page. (Maria Von Trapp died in 1987- hard to believe it has been 32 years!) Dust Jacket is price clipped and shows some minor soiling and minor edge chipping. Dust Jacket is now covered by a new clear mylar cover. Book also comes with two Von Trapp Postcards. One is a picture of Baroness Maria Von Trapp at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. This postcard was written at the Trapp Family Lodge and was mailed to a couple in Minnesota. The second postcard is of Miss Maria F. Trapp in New Guinea and is unused (This is Maria's daughter, who was a missionary in New Guinea). Some nice collectibles for yourself or as a gift!. Signed. Seller Inventory # 191213C

About this Item: self-published, Stowe, VT, 1972. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: fair. Presumed first edition/first printing. 203, [5] pages. 23 cm. Illustrations. Signed by author on fep. DJ is worn, torn, soiled and chipped. Signed on fep. From Wikipedia: "Maria Augusta von Trapp (nee Kutschera; 26 January 1905 28 March 1987), also known as Baroness von Trapp, was the stepmother and matriarch of the Trapp Family Singers. Her story served as the inspiration for a 1956 German film that in turn inspired the Broadway musical The Sound of Music (1959) and the 1965 film of the same name. In 1926, while still a schoolteacher at the abbey, Maria was asked to teach one of the seven children of widowed naval commander Georg von Trapp. Soprano Lotte Lehmann heard the family sing, and she suggested they perform at concerts. When the Austrian Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg heard them, he invited them to perform in Vienna. After performing at a festival in 1935, they became a popular touring act. In the 1940s, the family moved to Stowe, Vermont, where they ran a music camp when they were not touring. In 1957, the Trapp Family Singers disbanded and went their separate ways. Singer Maria Trapp was born on January 26, 1905, aboard a train, as her mother hurried from their village in the Tyrol to the hospital in Vienna, Austria. Her mother, Augusta (nee Rainer), died shortly after Maria was born, and her father, Karl Kutschera, died when she was 6 years old. As a guardian to Maria, the court appointed a man whom she has described as a passionate socialist and a violent anti-Catholic. Although she had been baptized, she grew up outside the Church until she was 18. She was, at that time, in her final year at the State Teachers College for Progressive Education in Vienna. To atone for her earlier life, Maria Kutschera decided to enter a convent. She was accepted as a candidate for the novitiate at the Nonnberg Benedictine Convent at Salzburg, where she considered herself a black sheep because of her tomboyish ways, her willful and independent nature, and her lack of religious training. She was teaching fifth graders at the convent when she was sent by the Mother Abbess as a governess to the children of Baron Georg von Trapp. The Baron, a much-decorated World War I submarine commander, had retired with his 7 children to a villa in Aigen, near Salzburg, after the death of his wife.
