A Manual for the Study of the Human Voice; Exercises and Practices for the Speaking and Singing Voice  [fourth edition. COMPLETE in 30 lessons. WITH personalized letters from the author], Feuchtinger, Eugene
7 Feuchtinger, Eugene A Manual for the Study of the Human Voice; Exercises and Practices for the Speaking and Singing Voice [fourth edition. COMPLETE in 30 lessons. WITH personalized letters from the author]
Chicago, IL Perfect Voice Institute 1922 Softcover Very Good 8vo. 
The complete manual in 30 Lessons numbered I through XXX, plus the 16 page Reference Outline and Table of Lesson Contents of the Manual. Fourth edition, 1922. Each booklet is saddle stapled and has three perforations for binder insertion. There is no binder; there is a box with remnants of Perfect Voice Institute label of which the seams of the lid are split at corners and the box too thin to hold all 30 lessons. AS WELL, included are the letters the student received from Eugene Feuchtinger between 7 November 1924 and 8 May 1925. This lot consists of five "lesson letters" and two others. 14 leaves, with the first leaf of each letter on Perfect Voice Institute letterhead. Of the seven letters, six are addressed using the student's name, the other one simply headed "My Dear Student". Each of the letters has Feuchtinger's signature in green ink. It is my impression that six of the signatures are from a rubber stamp but that one is authentic. The small sheet with the student's file number is fastened to the first letter; the Rules of the institute, on green paper, are anchored with a brass tab to the letters - this tab is removable. A similar tab is holding Lessons XV through XXV together by the topmost perforation - this too is of course removable. An uncommon archive. Please inquire for any further clarification, and for overses shipping options.
