JOHN LUTHER LONG
The lawyer and author who wrote "Madame Butterfly" signs his name on this card
Signature: "John Luther Long" in black ink. 5x3. John Luther Long (1861-1927) was an American lawyer and writer. After being admitted to the bar in 1881, he become a practicing lawyer. Long wrote many short stories published in magazines and journals throughout the early 1900s, but he is best known for his short story "Madame Butterfly", which was based on the recollections of his sister, Jennie Correll, who had been to Japan with her husband, a Methodist minister. Long selected David Belasco, a well-regarded producer and writer, to transform the story into a play. The work was a success, eventually catching the attention of Puccini, who would compose the opera "Madame Butterfly" with a libretto penned with Long's assistance. Among his other works, he was moderately successful with a second drama set in Japan, "The Darling of the Gods", and "Adrea", a tragedy set in the Roman Empire. Lightly toned. Mounting residue on upper left corner. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Lightly soiled near corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
