An extraordinary and very interesting collection of 10 original signed hand tracing outlines from some of the most important orchestral conductors of the twentieth century. Each hand outline is traced in pencil and signed, each on a separate sheet titled Forget-Me-Not, some dated. The conductors represented are: Herbert von Karajan (n.d.), Heinz Tiessen (January 3, 1957), Clemens Krauss (March 4, 1949), Eugen Jochum (December 15, 1938), Hidemaro Konoye (signed in pen with an inscription giving best wishes on the collector's 50th birthday and dated November 22, 1938), Victor de Sabata (n.d.), Carl Schuricht (January 12, 1939), Ernest Ansermet (March 1957), Paul Paray (January 11, 1939), and Hans von Benda (January 25, 1948). A very unique collection, not least as it sheds light on the relative hand size of each of these greats (Ansermet is the only left-hander among them.) Some light overall toning and left edges rough; overall in fine condition. Each 7.5 x 10 inches (19 x 25.7 cm).
