2 James Abbott Mcneill Whistler, The Gentle Art of Making Enemies (1890; 3rd edn New York: Puttnam, 1904). The first German edition, translated by Margarete Mauthner was published in Amsterdam and Dresden by the Verlag der Kunst in 1896, and in Berlin by Bruno Cassirer in 1909. Its title was Die artige Kunst sich Feinde zu machen, which corresponds with Schenker’s reference.
