LESCHETIZKY AS I KNEW HIM.
Edition: First printing.
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1921.

In 1903, she made her debut with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and she worked for Leschetizky as his assistant from 1904 to 1908. This is not a formal biography, but, as she states in the foreword, rather a picture of the musician as a teacher and mentor. vii, 295 pp plus 2 pp publisher's ads.
