Item #27069 Autograph Manuscript of "The Tragic Comedian" Bettina Von Hutten, Baroness von Hutten.

Autograph Manuscript of "The Tragic Comedian"

[ca. 1906]. An original 15,5 page holograph manuscript from the prolific author Bettina Von Hutten (1874-1957), probably best remembered for the "Pam" series. She was born in the United States as Bettina Riddle. She married the English Shakespearean actor Henry Ainley, and later married Baron von Hutten, Chamberlain to the King of Bavaria, in 1897. They divorced twelve years later. This is a melodramatic story about the unhappily married wife of a drama critic who accidentally meets an actor on a bridge as he is about the commit suicide. He of course does not. The short story appeared in Volume 41 of Cosmopolitan Magazine in 1906. Written on the letterhead of the Hotel Tyrol in Innsbruck. Worn, frayed, and darkened but still good. AUTO/092013. Good +.
