Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $100.00
Sold Price: $686.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Difficult to find original program from the April 29, 1912, “Benefit Performance for the Families of the Victims of the ‘Titanic’ Disaster,” 7 x 10.25. Program bears several images of artists’ renditions of the disaster, as well as several memorials, along with the program listing. Front cover carries a Charles Dana Gibson image of a needy waif. In very good condition, with a few loose pages, scattered tears and areas of paper loss to covers, mounting remnants to back covers. Accompanied by an exceptionally rare postcard (unused) announcing the event, with artist's rendering of a nymph-like figure Spirit Triumphant. Opera stars Enrico Caruso and Mary Garden helped raise $12,000 in benefits for victims of the disaster by giving special concerts in which versions of ‘Autumn’ and ‘Nearer My God To Thee’ were part of the program. Caruso perfromed Arthur Sullivan’s ‘The Lost Chord.’ RRAuction COA.
