ALS and related ephemera

Item #8567

Brand was the leader of the gay rights emancipation movement in early twentieth century Germany, widely known as the founder of the long-running journal Der Eigene. Included are two ALS from Brand to Edward Dent, both dated in 1904 regarding the magazine. Of particular interest is Brand reference to Dent's friend and fellow Uranian Charles Sayle, who was a close friend of Dent's when they were at Cambridge. Dent went on to become a leading British critic and writer on music and was a Professor of Music at Cambridge for many years. The character Philip Herriton in E.M . Forster's Where Angels Fear to Tread was based on Dent. See Ingleheart, Masculine Plural: Queer Classics, Sex, and Education.
Along with a printed receipt in Brand's hand to Dent for a copy of Der Eigene, three printed postcards with various advertisements for Der Eigene and a folded stiff card advertising the magazine.
