T.L.S., 1p. 8vo., Heidelberg, July 12, 1971, addressed to the son of Paul Kahn, a German architect who once worked with the Kaiser, who was later thrown out of Germany by the Gestapo, then befriended Speer. In part: '...It was a great pleasure to be able to entertain your father...thank you very much for the invitation to visit you in America. However, we do not initially intend to go to your country; for all the well-being of many American citizens, we can still expect resentment from this...' Signed at the conclusion in blue ink. Fine condition. This lot was taken from a large grouping of correspondence from Speer to Kahn consigned to us, and comes with a photocopy of a letter from our consigner, providing some further details into Speer and Kahn's relationship.

Shipments are sent via FedEx and DHL (for most overseas shipments) or FedEx Ground at the auctioneer's option. Due to complications from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will ship with USPS Priority Mail only if the buyer submits their request to us in writing and accepts responsibility for delayed shipments. Signature is always required, unless other arrangements are made. Handling and shipping charges will be added to the invoice in one entry. Buyers should be aware that large, framed, fragile or odd shaped items can incur substantial shipping and packing charges.
