Carmen Sylva

Queen of Romania, 1843-1916

"Elisabeth of Wied first met Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen in Berlin in 1861. In 1869, Karl, who was now Prince Carol of Romania, traveled to Germany in search of a suitable consort. He was reunited with Elisabeth, and the two were married in 1869. Early distinguished by her excellence as a musician, and painter; but a lively poetic imagination led her to the path of literature, and more especially to poetry, folk-lore and ballads. She took on the literary name ""Carmen Sylva"" publishing her earliest poems""Sappho"" and ""Hammerstein"" which appeared at Leipzig in 1880. Several of the her works were written in collaboration with Mite Kremnitz, one of her maids of honor."

Elisabeth I of Romania, chiefly known under her pen name "Carmen Sylva", probably composed these devotional texts during a protracted stay in Italy and with her mother in Segenhaus (Neuwied, Rhineland-Palatinate) during the years 1882/83. The 21 devotions were first published in 1888 in Romanian (as "Cuvinte Sufletesti", "Words of the Soul"); a German edition appeared in Bonn in 1900 as "Seelengespräche". The Queen drew up this present fair copy specially for her mother and dedicated it to her, bound in a luxury binding, for her 59th birthday: "Meiner Mutter, meinem Religionslehrer und Vorbild auf dem Erdengange" ("To my mother, my religious instructor and role model throughout my life", f.

2). - Velvet binding shows signs of age in places, but is only very slightly rubbed. Silver edges are oxydized; wants a headband. The paper is unstained and immaculately white..
