 MY HUSBAND GABRILOWITSCH, The Intimate Story of the Celebrated Pianist-Conductor-Composer,  copyright 1938 by Clara Clemens Gabrilowitsch (Mark Twain's daughter).  Hard cover, no dust jacket, 351 pages including index and appendices.  Illustrated with 14 black & white photographic plates.  Stated first edition. 

Daughter of one genius, wife of another and celebrated in her own right (as a soprano who performed in public with her husband), the author of 'My Father Mark Twain' tells a story of the romantic marriage of two young music students; their years together; Gabrilowitsch's brilliant career as a pianist; the founding of a great orchestra (Detroit Symphony); reminiscences of their literary and musical friends. 

A story of genius, beginning with Mark Twain and his young daughter Clara in Vienna.  Clara was to study piano with the great Leschetizky.  A handsome young Russian was also a pupil.  Their romance began, but interludes of humorous misunderstandings protracted the engagement for several years.  At the outbreak of the World War Gabrilowitsch was imprisoned; they eventually escaped to Switzerland and America.   The story of how the great Detroit Symphony Orchestra was established and its fine Hall built is told in full. 

Condition:  Very Good - slightly yellowed pages, but no tears, marks or missing pages.
