Paganini, [Nicolo]. Framed Playbill.

Birmingham: Barlow, 1832. Framed broadside.

A rare broadside for one of the iconic violinists probably numerous "last" performances. Among paganini's notorious showmanship gimmicks was to break all but one string and play a piece, thus handicapped, with surprising dexterity. Such a performance is promised in the program here.
