She writes about the publication of an essay and begins by thanking her correspondent for the proofs, "...from the Das Parlament paper and the review from the Suddeutsche Zeitung. I have noted with some amazement that you were able to sell the interview to such advantage. If you want to do that for England...they should wait for ...translation. Regarding the publication: If the Piper publishing house really intends to include the entire text as an add-on to a new edition in the Spring...it will probably be done quite simply in France, and it is also possible that the American publisher...will print the English text with a new edition of On Violence. I am not familiar with the essay about me in the magazine Soziale Welt...." She signs, "Hannah Arendt, " and continues in two post scripts. "The New York Review of Books, which originally printed the essay is also interested in the interview...Harcourt Brace told me that you only have the rights for the magazines and newspapers and that the book-rights are mine...." Arendt again signs the postscript "H.A." Arendt taught in America from 1959 including at The New School for Social Research from1967 till her death in 1975.This substantive letter on publishing contains three lines, heavily crossed out by hand, ending in a double asterisk which leads the reader to the second post script. Fine references to her later essays. Very Good (Item ID: 49)
