Please contact us for complete list: 8 notes / cards / publications signed and inscribed by Hesse, and several long letters and notes from Ninon Hesse, written from Sils Maria.

Richard Hoffman (1893-1968) was a prominent Vienna dermatologist and intellectual, forced to flee to America in 1938 with the help of Felix Frankfurter; he was friendly with Thomas Mann, Herman Hesse, E. E. Cummings, Wilhelm Reich, Peter Altenberg and many other intellectuals in Europe and in the states. The exchanges between the Hesses and the Hoffmans demonstrate a warm friendship between the two families that included visits by the Hoffmans to Sils Maria. Item #H8985
