An antique dealer in Vienna is selling a letter from Anton Bruckner to his friend Rudolf Weinwurm - dated 26.Dec.1864 and signed "ABruckner" - for EUR 25.000,-!

He reports on the premiere of his Mass No.1 in the Alten Dom in Linz and expresses his hope to see the work performed in Vienna.

Other Bruckner autographs can be seen here.

My thanks to Johannes Stich for providing this information.
