Fontane, Theodor, German novelist and poet (1819-1898). "Bauernkrieg. Grumbachsche Händel etc.". Autograph manuscript.

N. p. o. d.

Folio. ¾ pp. on bifolium. In pencil.


Notes about the location of memorabilia from the age of Grumbach and Münzer. Written on a bifolium of slightly yellowed draft paper. Fontane's diaries and letters provide no other hint that Fontane took an interest in Wilhelm von Grumbach and his arguments with the Bishop of Würzburg, Emperor Ferdinand I, and the Elector of Saxony. Grumbach's legal battles, a history-based subject in the vein of Michael Kohlhaas, was likely to atttract a writer such as Fontane.
