        Testacea fluviatilia quae in itinere per Brasiliam annis MDCCCXVII-MDCCCXX ... collegit et pingenda curavit...

      Lipsiae, T.O. Weigel, (1827). 4to (370 x 270mm). pp. [viii], 36, with 29 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary quarter cloth and marbled boards (ends of spine with small repair). First edition of this monograph on the freshwater molluscs of Brazil, the first work devoted to Brazilian shells, and one of several publications resulting from Spix and Martius' expedition to Brazil from 1817 to 1820. The expedition was under the aegis of the King of Bavaria, Maximilian Joseph I. 'His plans for sending scientific explorers to South America were realized in 1817, when an Austrian expedition was sent to Brazil. Martius and several other Bavarian scientists, including his companion, the zoologist Spix, went along. They left Trieste on 2 April 1817 and returned to Munich in December 1820' (DSB).//'Spix and Martius were the first European scientists to visit the Amazon after La Condamine. Their collections ... provided material for a vast number of works by other scientists. Spix himself was occupied entirely with publishing his findings after his return to Munich... Weakened by the fevers that he had suffered on his voyage, he died [in 1826], leaving other zoologists, including Louis Agassiz, to complete the publication of his works' (ibid.). /For this volume the descriptions were provided by J.A. Wagner. It was edited by Paula von Schrank and Martius.//Borba de Moraes II 280; Nissen ZBI, 3954.

        Laurie's New Plan of London and its Environs :Comprising the new buildings and recent improvements. Being an original survey by John Outhett 1827. This survey includes an extent of 7 3/4 miles East and West and 6 miles North and South. It is founded.

      1827 - Sheet map. Hand coloured. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, 66 x 83cm, (26 x 34.5 inches). Green marbled card covers and original green marbled card slipcase with map details on label on the front. Scarce, particularly with the slipcase. The map is remarkably undamaged, with no tears or lacunae and only minimal marking with no loss of detail. The card covers are worn and chipped at the edges and the slipcase is worn at all edges with chips and abrasions. One long seam of the slipcase has come unglued. The map is at a scale of approximately 4 inches to the Mile. The long title seeks to emphasise the accuracy of the map, stating: 'It is founded on the Trigonometric Operations of the late General Roy, combined with a new series of 52 Stations on elevated situations, from which the positions of upwards of 450 Steeples, Domes, Turrets, Vanes and other conspicuous objects,within the limits of the plan, have been determined by means of more than 5000 angles.' The date of 1827 is just before the advent of the railways and was in a period of rapid growth in London, with population rising from 1.4m in 1815 to over 3m in 1860. Consequently the map is a fascinating snapshot of development at this time. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Missa Solemnis

      1827. BEETHOVEN, Ludwig von. [Missa Solemnis. Opus 123]. Missa composita, et Serenissimo ac eminentissimo Domino Domino…. Text in Latin. Plate number 2346.

Preserved in nineteenth-century half vellum folding chemise. Paris: B. Schott, 1827. First Edition, trade issue, of the full score of a work generally considered to be one of Beethoven's supreme achievements. "Between October 1822 and February 1824 Beethoven completed three works which are in one way or another as gigantic as the Hammerklavier Sonata: the Diabelli Variations, the Mass in D (Missa solemnis) and the Ninth Symphony" (Joseph Kerman, Alan Tyson - with Scott G. Burnham, Oxford Music Online). "Unquestionably a great work, representing Beethoven at the height of his powers, it has notably failed to reach the popularity of many of the symphonies and sonatas…. Compared to other works of similar stature, the Missa Solemnis is rarely performed. Its notoriously difficult choral parts make it a stumbling block for many orchestras who only have access to volunteer choirs. Limited performances of the work have made it far less known than Beethoven's other large works." With the price "19 fl. 24 kr." on front cover and no list of subscribers. With the yellow Schott & Co. of London printed ticket on front cover and their blindstamp at top of first leaf. Two copies in OCLC; Morgan Library NYC and Oxford University.

        Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia. Performed between the years 1818 and 1822

      London: John Murray, 1827. Two volumes, octavo, with nine aquatint views, large folding map backed with linen (as common), smaller engraved chart and three engraved natural history plates (one folding); a fine set in modern period-style half calf by Aquarius, spines gilt with morocco labels. FINISHED. King's survey voyage: a fine set. First edition of this great book, recounting the Australian coastal voyages of the Mermaid and the Bathurst.Admiral Phillip Parker King (1791-1856), Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, became the British navy's leading hydrographer. His Australian coastal voyages, together with Oxley's expeditions inland, represented the great expansionary undertakings of the Macquarie era. King charted the greater part of the west, north and north-east coasts and also carried out important surveys in the area of the Barrier Reef. His hydrographical work is still the basis of many of the modern charts for the areas he surveyed.From 1815 or so, British interest in the largely uncharted northern and north-western coast of Australia had increased, partly out of concern at the territorial ambitions of other nations, especially the Dutch and the French. Much in the same way that Flinders was commissioned due to English concerns over the Baudin expedition, King was given his command because of anxiety about the planned Freycinet voyage. As a direct result, King was sent from England in 1817, with Admiralty instructions to complete the survey of Australia and finish the charting begun by Flinders and Baudin. By 1824-25 he had issued a series of eight large charts showing the northern coasts, to be followed with this complete printed journal of his expedition. The engraved views were taken from King's own sketches.The work also includes significant natural history essays, including work by John Edward Gray, William Sharp Macleay and William Henry Fitton, three senior British scientists. Easily the most interesting section, however, is the long essay by Allan Cunningham, 'A Few General Remarks on the Vegetation of certain coasts of Terra Australis...'. Cunningham had sailed with King, and so this section has the added interest of eyewitness reportage, as well as comparisons between the botany of east and west coasts. Cunningham's report is supplemented by notes from Robert Brown, and the whole section concludes with three natural history plates.This is the regular 1827 issue: a few copies survive with an 1826 date on the title-pages, without any other points of difference (the 1826 issue appears to be a presentation issue of some kind, as is attested by the fact that where seen they are often accompanied by some sort of manuscript dedication).

        "The Morning Salute or Deaf as a Poet".

      . Aquarell, Bleistift und Feder, mit Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen J WHATMAN1826; verso signiert "Geor. Cruik-shank" und vermutlich von fremder Hand bezeichnet "Cruickshank The Morning Salute or Deaf as a Poet "Pray what little snob much was I ... saw you ... of last night, Sir _ Eh?". 14,4:17,6 cm. Vorzeichnung für eine Karikatur, die laut älterer Beschriftung verso im Juli 1827 veröffentlich wurde.. Bis auf eine eher oberflächliche Einführung in die Kunst bei seinem Vater, den Karikaturenzeichner I. Cruikshank (um 1756-1810/11), war er Autodidakt. Er selbst fertigte zunächst insbesondere satirische Karikaturen an, die sich gegen die bestehenden sozial-politischen Zustände richteten, zu nennen sind hier seine Napoleon-Karikaturen. Ab 1819 war er zunehmend als Buchillustrator tätig, so fertigte er die Illustrationen zu Pierce Egans (1772-1849) Monatsjournal "Life in London", das von Oktober 1820 bis 1821 erschien und ihm zum Durchbruch verhalf. Darüber hinaus sind seine Radierungen zu Grimms Hausmärchen zu erwähnen, 1824-1826 veröffentlicht. Engere Bekanntschaft zu W.H. Ainsworth (1805-1882) und C. Dickens (1812-1870), Zusammenarbeit mit W. Thackeray (1811-1863). Ab 1848 wurden seine Karikaturen zunehmend moralisierend, er setzte sich in Erinnerung an den Alkoholtod seines Vaters verstärkt gegen den Alkohol ein. Großen Erfolg erlangten diesbezüglich seine Illustrationen zu den Traktaten "The bottle" von 1847 und "The drunkards children" von 1848. Seine Werke besitzt die National Gallery, das British Museum, das Westminster Royal Aquarium und das Victoria and Albert Museum London.

"Einem Brief Ludwig Emil Grimms an seinen Bruder Ferdinand von 1825 zufolge, hat der Künstler den Dichter bereits 1824 kennengelernt. Er beschreibt ihn mit folgenden Worten: Ein Dichter, Heinrich Heine, hat mir von Göttingen aus, wo er Jura studiert, besucht, er hat ein gescheites Gesicht und ist auch nicht häßlich und auch just nicht unangenehm. Er sagte mir, er kenne Dich von Berlin aus. Ich habe so einiges von seinen Sachen gelesen '". (Zit. aus: Ausst. Katalog: Ludwig Emil Grimm 1790-1863. Maler - Zeichner - Radierer. Kassel/Hanau, 1985, Nr. 81). Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Salmau yr Eglwys yn yr Anialwch

      34 - Merthyr Tydfil - H. W. White, 1827 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A rebound religious, Psalm book, with marble, paper covered boards. Iolo Morganwg (or Morgannwg in modern spelling) was the bardic name of Edward Williams (Llancarfan, Glamorgan, Wales 1747-1826), an influential antiquarian, poet, collector and literary forger. The name is Welsh for Ned of Glamorgan. Edward Williams spent his working life as a stonemason. It is as Iolo Morganwg that he is remembered, chiefly for his role in (re)creating modern bardic ritual and philosophy. His bardic teacher was Sin Bradford of Tir Iarll. Iolo first came to public notice by revealing some previously undiscovered poetry by Dafydd ap Gwilym, generally considered to be the greatest Welsh poet, in 1789. These poems were in fact forgeries, but survived critical attention for over hundred years. His success lead Iolo to move to London. Become a significant figure in the Welsh community there he held the first Gorsedd, Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, at a ceremony in 1792 at Primrose Hill, London. He went on to author fairly substantial works (most of which are now considered forgeries) claiming that the ancient druidic tradition had survived intact in Wales, despite the Roman conquest, Christianity, the persecution of the bards under King Edward I, and other adversities. Iolo's philosophy represented a fusion of Christian and Arthurian influences, a proto-romanticism comparable to that of William Blake and the Scottish poet and forger James MacPherson, the revived antiquarian enthusiasm for all things Celtic, and such elements of bardic heritage as had genuinely survived among Welsh-language poets. Part of his aim was to assert the Welshness of the South, particularly his home region of Glamorgan, against the prevalent idea that North Wales represented the purest survival of Welsh traditions. Iolo was the author of the Druid's Prayer or Gorsedd prayer (Gweddi'r Derwydd or Gweddi'r Orsedd in Welsh), which is still a staple of the ritual of both gorseddau and Neo-Druidism. His metaphysics outlined a theory of concentric 'rings of existence', proceeding outward from Annwn (the Otherworld) through Abred and Ceugant to Gwynfyd (purity or Heaven). Among his writings was Cyfrinach Beirdd Ynys Prydain, or The Mystery of the Bards of the Isle of Britain (1829), a treatise on Welsh metrics. He also forged an extra set of Welsh Triads. Condition: The book has been rebound and consequently the binding is very tight and firm with both covers and all surviving, internal pages attached. There is no visible wear to the extremities. Internally there are new pastedowns and blank-end papers. The title page in addition to the first few pages of the first volume, and page 243 of the second volume, are missing. The first original page is page xix, with pages x to xii following. These pages, in addition to pages 244 to 248 of the second volume,have been repaired with archive paper as the original corners are missing. The majority of the texts on these pages are still intact. The remainingpages from page one of the first volume to page 248 of the second volume are all present. There are handling marks, brown age spots and stains throughout the book, although these do not generally affect the visibility of the text. A fe of the top outer corners of the book are creased There is a very faint number written in ink on the first two pages of the first volume..

        Archive of 21 autograph letters

      1827?"47. 21 autograph letters (20 signed) to various person by Mary Shelley: one of which also bearing 2-page letter by Leigh Hunt, two of which signed letters lacking first half, two of which signed fragments, one of which lacking the signed second half, six of which in Italian. Varying papers and page-lengths, 9 folded as envelopes comprising addresses (8 with wax seal). All housed in individual varicoloured card folders. Generally very good condition, excepting one fragment torn and taped back together. A superb collection of Mary Shelley autograph letters, from the collection of Mary Shelley specialist Professor Jean de Palacio at the University of Lille. The letters date from 15 April 1827 to the winter of 1847, and include two highly important letters to Edward Trelawny (one of which also bears a 2-page letter from Leigh Hunt, the other constituting one of Mary Shelley's most honest expressions of her feelings about her stepsister Claire Clairmont), one remarkable letter to Claire Clairmont enclosing a clipped signature of Percy Bysshe Shelley (the signature still present), as well as a sequence of six letters in Italian to Tuscan liberal politician and railway financier Bartolomeo Cini (1809?"1877). Further, there are twelve letters to different recipients including three of significant literary interest (one to influential Scottish publisher Alexander Blackwood; another to novelist and editor of The Keepsake Frederic Mansel Reynolds; the third denouncing Stendhal's Promenades dans Rome to Scottish editor and publisher of the Foreign Quarterly Review John George Cochrane), and nine of biographical interest. i) With Leigh Hunt to Edward Trelawny, Harrow, Easter Sunday [15 Apr.] 1827 In this marvellous double letter, Mary writes lengthily over two large pages, Leigh Hunt for two, and then Mary adds, upside down between the lines of Hunt's first page, another page of her own. The letter is addressed "to the care of M. Sam Barff [1793?"1880, friend of Byron and important supporter of Greek Independence], Zante?"The Ionian Isles." Trelawny was at this time something of a celebrity back at home in England, after his unfortunate but dramatic involvement in the Greek War of Independence supporting the renegade warlord Odysseas. Having been deported from Greece, he was living on the Isle of Zante for a year since May 1826, but would, shortly after he received this letter from Shelley and Hunt (a postal stamp reading "Corfu, 26 Maggio, 1827" is visible), divorce his wife Teritza (Odysseas's half-sister) and return to England, in order to pursue his relationship with Mary Shelley (which almost turned into marriage) and the other surviving Romantics, and to begin writing his memoirs and controversial biographical reminiscences of Byron and Shelley. Mary's letter catches Trelawny up on the lives of his old acquaintances, mentioning the courtship of Jane Williams (wife of Edward, who drowned with Shelley) and Shelley's Oxford comrade-in-expulsion T. J. Hogg, as well as mentioning Shelley himself, his younger brother John, Edward Williams, Claire Clairmont ("still in Russia") and Thomas Medwin, also expressing great personal emotion, verging on romantic desperation, towards Trelawny at the prospect of his return to England ("I am dead to all other hope?"if you returned?"yet you would not make one of us?"you will leave us quickly again?"yet it will be great happiness to have you again with me, tho' for a short time?"will you not come?"). Hunt's letter is characteristically light hearted and witty, mentioning his own memoirs and his ill health and penury. Mary's postscript sympathizes: "Poor darling Hunt?"my heart bleeds for him ... he deserves all possible good?"but this [is] an hard world?"& he is treated on all sides in every way by God & Man.?"and alas all I can do is to watch & weep over the progress of the evil". Mary goes on to update Trelawny on recent British politics and the implications for Greek Independence, including George Canning's "coup de maitre" accession as Prime Minister. ii) To John George Cochrane, 33 Somerset Street, 23 Dec. 1829 Single small page addressing the Scottish editor and publisher of the Foreign Quarterly Review, describing "M. Beyles' book" (Stendhal's Promenades dans Rome) as "so trite so unentertaining?"so very commonplace that I have found it quite impossible to do anything with it". Conceivably written in reply to an invitation to translate or review the book. iii) To Frederic Mansel Reynolds, 33 Somerset Street, [n.d., Dec. 1832/Jan. 1833?] Four small pages (latterly mounted in a die-cut paper frame bearing the legend "Mrs Shelley author of "Frankenstein", daughter of William Godwin") addressing the novelist and editor of The Keepsake, complaining of a returned copy, and mentioning "one of the Keepsakes you sent me has pages omitted?"& is turned topsy turvy in the binding?"I sent it to a friend in the country who finds it a riddle-my-ree". The Keepsake for 1833 contained two stories by Mary Shelley: "The Brother and Sister, an Italian Story" and "The Invisible Girl". iv) To Mary Gaskell, Harrow, [May 1833?"36?] Two medium-sized pages addressing the wife of Daniel Gaskell (MP 1832?"7), acquaintances of Claire Clairmont who Mary introduced to William Godwin. The letter is a genial excuse for missing their attempted visit, and urging them to make another. v) To [Celia Gore?], Harrow, [1833?"6?] Single small page, lacking half of the verso address, and beginning without a "To...", but conjectured to be to Celia "Cissy" Gore, one of the ten children of Catherine Frances Gore, who visited Mary Shelley on 2 September 1834 as recorded in Godwin's journal. Mary arranges a play-date for her son Percy Florence, mentioning his love for "his dear Henry" (Celia's son). vi) To Edward Trelawny, [14 North Bank?] 14 May 1836 One-and-a-quarter large pages discussing with extraordinary vehemence her dislike of Claire Clairmont: "Claire always harps upon my desertion of her?"as if I could desert one I never clung to?"we were never friends?"Now, I would not go to Paradise, with her for a companion?"she poisoned my life when young?"that is over now?"but as we never loved each other, why these eternal complaints to me of me. I respect her now much?"& pity her deeply?"but years ago my idea of Heaven was a world without a Claire?"of course these feelings are altered?"but she has still the faculty of making me more uncomfortable than any human being?"a faculty she, unconsciously perhaps, never fails to exert whenever I see her." vii) To Claire Clairmont, [24 South Audley Street], 2 May 1837 Single small page, a terse letter to Claire enclosing the inscription of her husband "Yours ever faithfully?"Percy B. Shelley" (the enclosure still present, presumably clipped from an earlier letter to Mary), accompanied by Mary's note, "I hope the person to whom you give it will appreciate it as it deserves?"or I should not like to part with it". Given that the chief root of Mary's dislike of Claire lay in Claire's intrusion into Mary's relationship with Percy Shelley (Claire and he almost certainly had an affair, and may even have had a child together), Mary's gift to Claire of such a treasured relict of her "faithful" husband is remarkable. viii) To Harriet Boinville, [84 Park Street, Mar.?"May 1841?] Two small pages, lacking first half of letter, to Harriet Boinville, sister-in-law to the radical vegan John Frank Newton. Back in 1813 Percy Shelley had been close friends with the Boinvilles when married to Harriet Westbrook, and he had also been in love with Harriet Boinville's daughter. Mary's letter is full of interest, discussing the Godwin family and Claire, then going on to fantasise (from the depths of a debilitating illness) about her travel prospects based upon her European connections: "I passed happy hours among you in Paris?"a dark spell has been over me since my return?"Tell Alfred I still dream of the Piramids?"A friend of mine (with a wife my particular friend) is Chargé d'Affaires at Constantinople?"another friend is Prime Minister at Athens?"another of my lady friends passes the winter at Palermo & wants me to join?"I might make such a delightful tour!?"What a grumbling wretch I am forgive me!" The Athenian is Alexander Mavrocordato, who was, at the time of writing, travelling from London to Athens to take up the post of Greek prime minister. He arrived on 12 June and served barely nine weeks, being dismissed by the king on 21 August 1841. ix) To Bartolomeo Cini, [Florence,] [13] Mar. 1843 Three large pages, addressing the son-in-law of Margaret King, Lady Mountcashel (1773?"1835), whom Percy and Mary Shelley had known as their liberal hostess "Mrs Mason" at Casa Silva, Pisa. Lady Mountcashel had abandoned her title on eloping to live with Irishman George Tighe, taking "Mrs Mason" from the character of the governess in Mary Shelley's mother Mary Wollstonecraft's book Original Stories. As a child in Ireland she had been Wollstonecraft's pupil and protégé, and was glad to reciprocate her governess's care by offering support to the Shelleys and Claire when they arrived in Pisa in 1820, introducing them to a new radical intellectual circle. For his part George Tighe helped to satisfy Percy Shelley's appetite for information about new scientific researches. Margaret's daughter Nerina married Bartolomeo Cini, a Tuscan nobleman mentioned by Mary in 1834 as "an amiable & cultivated & rich Italian". Cini went on to be an important Liberal politician and railway financier. In the letter Mary broaches the matter of Percy Shelley having been "molto amico della madre di Nerina" ("very friendly with Nerina's mother"), and enquires about the possible survival of any letters from Shelley, in spite of the rumour that all the mother's letters had been burned after her death. Mary travelled with her son Percy Florence in Italy in 1840, 1842 and 1843, and recorded her travels in Rambles in Germany and Italy (1844). x) To Bartolomeo Cini, Via Sistina 64, 3 Piano, Rome, 6 Apr. [1843] Three medium-sized pages, discussing social arrangements, and stating "Il mio debito bramerei saldare" [I want to settle my debt]. xi) To Bartolomeo Cini, Alla Cocumella, Sorrento, 16 May [1843] Two medium-sized pages, thanking Cini for "le lettre che mi ha mandato" [the letters you have sent me], presumably Shelley's as requested in letter ix, and stating her intention to stay in Sorrento "two?"three or four months", and sending the regards of Percy Florence and his friend Andrew Alexander Knox, a Cambridge friend of Percy Florence, whom Mary helped in his journalistic career, and who accompanied them on their Italian tour. xii) To Bartolomeo Cini, Sorrento, 15 June [1843] Two large pages, complaining of the "pessima reputazione esateza" [wretched reputation for accuracy] of the Naples and Sorrento postal service, and informing him of their intention to leave for England soon. She goes on to excuse Sorrento as "veramente un Paradiso?"la sua belta è indicibile?"viviamo in una pace e tranquilita me molto piacevole; ma Percy e Knox lo trova un po monotono" [truly a Paradise?"its beauty is indescribable?"we live in a peace and tranquillity that is very agreeable to me; but Percy and Knox find it a little monotonous". xiii) To Bartolomeo Cini, Sorrento, 10 July [1843] One-and-a-half large pages, relating the arrival (all at once) of Cini's long-awaited letters, mentioning her plans to leave, pass by Livorno to pay her debt, and hoping to see Nerina again. She notes "mi dispiace tanto viaggare mare in tempo cattivo" [I dislike travelling by sea in bad weather very much], an affecting admission given her husband having drowned twenty years earlier in a squall near Livorno. xiv) To an unidentified recipient, Putney, 24 Oct. [1843?] Two small pages, noting "Percy [Florence] & I have been gadding", and accepting an invitation to dine. The letter has been mounted in a die-cut paper frame bearing a neat inscription; "Autograph note of Mary Shelley, daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and second wife of the Poet Percy B. Shelley". xv) To Adelaide Sartoris, Putney, 12 June [1844] Single small page, to Adelaide Sartoris, née Kemble, sister of Fanny Kemble (both Mary's friends since 1841), inviting her and her husband to see the Thames Regatta from her garden. xvi) To Alexander Blackwood?, Putney, 11 Jan. 1845 Four medium-sized pages, to Alexander Blackwood [? Bennett's attribution]. Mary solicits (unsuccessfully) for the publication of "a tale that has been confided to me from India" written by a Bengal artillery lieutenant, Captain Sir James Abbott, who had already had his Narrative of a Journey from Heraut to Khiva, Moscow, and St Petersburgh published by W. H. Allen in 1843. She describes the tale as "a romantic tale of India by an Old Indian" and its author as "a personal friend to Sir John McNeil, late Ambassador to Persia". xvii) To Marianna Hammond, Putney, 4 Feb. [1845] Two large pages (incomplete or at least unsigned) to Marianna, a friend of Claire Clairmont, relating Claire's health and problems with inheritance after the death of Sir Timothy Shelley. Mary also relates a piece of contemporary gossip about the death of Lady Elizabeth Aldborough (married the third earl in 1777): "She sent for a doctor & asked 'Is it sink or swim this time?' 'You need not fear?"you will swim.'" xviii) To Bartolomeo Cini, [Putney, Jan.?"Apr. 1845?] Four small pages, inviting Cini, before he leaves London, to attend a dinner party: "e preghero la Chiara anche di venire e si fara una piccola reunion di amici?"Toscanese per cosi dire" [I shall beg Claire to come as well and we shall have a small reunion of friends?"in the Tuscan fashion so to speak". xix) To Miss Courtney, 24 Chester Square, [1846?"50?] Single medium-sized page, to a "Miss Courtney", inviting her to dine: "only a quiet dinner, with no party after". xx) To an unidentified recipient, [24 Chester Square, 16 Apr.?"22 Jul. 1847?] Two-sided small fragment (signed, also torn with tape repair), written in ill-health: "...all are gone except the natural want of strength consequent but of that I cure every day?"My paper is done so I can only add I am Affectionately yours Mary Shelley". xxi) To an unidentified recipient, [24 Chester Square, 26 Dec. 1847?"8?] Two-sided small fragment (signed), mentioning the death of ?Georgina Beauclerk Paul, who "left us?"& was among the Angels she resembled by her warm loving heart".
