        ALS, 2pp. From Anthony Porter, Secretary to Governor Peter Early [to General David Blackshear, Military Commander of American Forces in South and West Georgia]. Postmarked Milledgeville, Georgia, January 25th, 1815

      Milledgeville, GA, 1815. This letter is known and has been published, appearing in Miller, Memoir of General Blackshear, Including letters from Governors Irwin, Jackson, Mitchell, Early, and Rabun...[&c]. Phil: 1858, whence the attribution of Blackshear as recipient. Transcript follows:& & -----------------------------& Milledgeville, GA - 25th January, 1815& & Dear Sir, & I take the liberty of sending to you enclosed a Savannah Republican of the 17th Instant in which you will find two letters from Capt. M[athias?] at Point Petre to Gen'l Floyd at Savannah and one from Col. Scott at Jefferson in Camden County detailing the operations of the Enemy in the neighbourhood of St. Marys. It was upon these documents communicated to the Executive by Express that you were ordered to that quarter of the Country. & & You will readily see what distress the people of that section of the State must be in - they will hail you as their protector & deliverer. & & We have not a word from General McIntosh relative to his progress on towards Mobile since the Governor last wrote you. We have a rumor by way of Athens from Tennessee that Gen'l Jackson has had a battle with the British at New Orleans on the 22d December & was successful. I send you the Extra hand bill from Athens relative to this subject. God send it may prove true. & & In great haste I am Dear Sir & Your Obt Serv't& Anthony Porter. ALS. 2pp (both sides of a single foolscap sheet). Anthony Porter, of a wealthy planter family near Milledgeville, Georgia, was official Secretary to Governor Peter Early (28th Governor of Georgia, 1813-1815). This is a significant letter, describing troop movements in Georgia in the War of 1812 and mentioning hearsay of Jackson's signal victory in the Battle of New Orleans, official news of which had apparently still not reached the Georgia State House more than a month later.

        MANOSCRITTO RIGUARDANTE I ""CENTO GIORNI"" 20 maggio 1815

      Importante manoscritto titolato "Relevé del Etate de Situation de Dépote de Cavalerie de L'Armée du nord". Rara testimonianza della ricerca di uomini e cavalli necessari alla Campagna che Napoleone, rientrato dall'Isola d'Elba, preparò durante la primavera del 1815 contro gli Alleati e che passò alla storia con il nome di Campagna dei Paesi Bassi. Il documento è composto da testo e tavole sinottiche inoltre il primo foglio, doppio, contiene gli altri di misure ridotte. Non reca indicazioni circa la data in cui fu redatto ma si suppone che sia il 20 maggio 1815 poiché nessuna data riportata supera questo giorno. Durante quei giorni infatti si accelerarono i preparativi dell'Armata che doveva essere ricostituita. Il manoscritto concerne 4 corpi dell'Armata del Nord, cioè quella che Napoleone comanderà personalmente nel giugno del 1815. La veste grafica ricorda una lavagna, dove i reggimenti di ogni corpo formano le linee orizzontali, le linee verticali formano le voci da segnalare (disponibili e pronti a partire, disponibili dopo equipaggiamento ecc.). All'interno dello schema si trovano osservazioni sul reclutamento, le rimonte, l'abbigliamento e molto altro ancora. 10 pagine legate con nastro verde di cui l'ottava bianca, la nona solo con intestazione, bianca la decima.

A magnificent set, one of only six copies printed on "grand papier d'Annonay," in contemporary Viennese red morocco bound for Archduke Karl-Ludwig, Duke of Teschen (1771-1847), Field Marshal General and victor at the battle of Aspern again Napoleon. He was the adopted son of Duke Albrecht von Sachsen-Teschen, from whom he inherited all the art collections (now in the Albertina Museum). MacCarthy-Reagh (1744-1811), born in Ireland, became a naturalized French citizen in 1776 on account of his staunch Catholic beliefs and installed himself in Toulouse, where he spent the rest of his life (and considerable wealth) forming one of the finest private libraries ever assembled. Only the La Vallière collection of a generation earlier was comparable in importance. In 1769 he purchased Girardot de Préfond's second library en bloc for 50,000 frs. De Ricci described the Mac-Carthy-Reagh library as "extravagantly rich in books printed on vellum" and the Duke of Devonshire was inspired to put in a bid of 20,000 pounds for the collection which in fact brought only some 16,000 pounds when it came up for auction in 1817. The auction catalogue describes, amongst much else, 602 books (in 826 volumes) printed on vellum including a copy of the Gutenberg Bible (lot 61), copies of the 1457 and 1459 Mainz Psalter, and a copy of the Ximenes Polyglot Bible. It abounded in incunabula, illuminated MSS., and early French literature. The 1817 fixed-price catalogue lists the books which did not reach their reserves in the 1815 auction. Provenance: Archduke Karl-Ludwig, with the Sachsen-Teschen press-mark label inside front covers; Arthur Rau, the Paris bookseller; H.P. Kraus, the New York bookseller (booklabel); and Bernard H. Breslauer (booklabel, his sale, Christie's New York, 21 March 2005, lot 88). ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 567. De Ricci, p. 80. .

Cockburn had served as aide-de-camp to General Elliott during the siege of Gibraltar, before a lengthy period travelling Europe studying foreign troop manoeuvres at the behest of the earl of Harington, the colonel of his regiment, the 65th. "In April 1810 Cockburn was appointed to the command of a division in the army of occupation in Sicily, and took charge of Messina, but his period of command was short, and in November, on his promotion to lieutenant-general, he had to resign … Cockburn then travelled in Sicily, and on his return to England published two illustrated volumes called A voyage to Cadiz and Gibraltar … On leaving Sicily, Cockburn settled down at Shanganah Castle, near Bray, co. Wicklow, which he had purchased, and began to devote himself to politics. He was initially a radical reformer and admirer of Cobbett, and erected a column in his grounds in memory of the Reform Bill …" (ODNB). Holly Lodge Library bookplates with ducal coronet of Harriot, Duchess of St. Albans to the front pastedowns - formerly the "darling of the frivolous London stage"; mistress then wife of Thomas Coutts, one of the wealthiest men in Britain; becoming a successful businesswoman in her own right; much lampooned and caricatured, Harriot Beauclerk is one of the most intriguing women of her time.

        AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED (AQS)

      5 July 1815. Framed Manuscript. Not examined out of the frame but appears to be Fine. A one-page (8" x 10") lengthy AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED by Wordsworth from a poem by Fulke Greville (Lord Brooke), a contemporary and friend of poet Philip Sidney. In full: "The chief use, then in Man of that he knows Is his painstaking for the good of all; Not fleshly weeping for our own made woes, Not laughing from a melancholy gall, Not hating from a Soul that overflows In bitterness, breathed forth from inward thrall; But sweetly rather to ease, loose, or bind, As need requires, this frail, fallen human kind.Lord Brooke./Peter House July 5th 1815/Wm Wordsworth." It is clear why Wordsworth might have chosen these words of Brooke's--"Man's Service" from A TREATISE OF HUMANE LEARNING--to write as the two shared the notion that while knowledge might bring happiness, it also increases susceptibility to suffering and self-torment. Matted and framed with an engraved portrait of Wordsworth to an overall size of 22" x 18". Fulke Greville (1554-1628) was a close friend of Sir Philip Sidney and a great patron of letters. Most of his works were not published until after his murder by a servant who thought he had been omitted from his masterís will. Some believe Greville is the true author of several plays attributed to William Shakespeare.

        DISPARATE GENERAL Título de Harris al Proverbio 9: Uñas de gato y hábito de beato.

      - Fecha: Sexta ediicón 1916Técnica: Aguafuerte y aguatintaSoporte: Papel: José Guarro BarcelonaMedidas: 244 x 345 mm [huella] / 310 x 440 mm [papel]Los Disparates o los Proverbios1 es una serie (con toda probabilidad incompleta) de veintidós grabados realizados al aguatinta y aguafuerte, con retoques de punta seca y bruñidor, realizada por Francisco de Goya entre los años 1815 y 1823.Se trata de la serie de estampas de más difícil interpretación de las que realizó el pintor aragonés. En ella destacan las visiones oníricas, la presencia de la violencia y el sexo y la puesta en solfa de las instituciones relacionadas con el Antiguo Régimen y en general, la crítica del poder establecido. Pero más allá de estas connotaciones las estampas ofrecen un mundo imaginativo rico relacionado con la noche, el carnaval, y lo grotesco que constituyen un enigma tanto estampa por estampa como en su conjunto. Año: 1916
