        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O., 29. VI. 1851.

      1851. 1¼ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse am letzten Bl. verso (Faltbrief). Siegelreste. An den Chorleiter und Musikdirektor Johann Theodor Mosevius (1788-1858) in Breslau: "Eine Arbeit die ich noch vor meiner Abreise noch Marienbad vollenden möchte, veranlaßt mich, mein verehrter, liber Freund sie um folgendes Buch aus der musikalischen Bibliothek in Breslau zu bitten: 'Cinquante pseaumes de David avec la musique à 3 parties par Orlande de Lassus. Vingt autres pseaumes a 5 & 6 parties etc. Jérome Commelin 1597.' Das Buch führt in der von mir zurückbehaltenen Catalogsabschrift die Nummer XVI und es ist ihm ein Werk 5 und 6 st. Gesänge von Jaches Wert Nürnberg 1583 vorgebunden. Je schleuniger Sie meine Bitte ausfüllen, um so mehr werde ich Ihnen dankbar seyn, und die Rückgabe würde eben so pünktlich erfolgen. Ich schreibe Ihnen in Eil, daher schließe ich hier [...]". - Der Jurist Winterfeld, ein Förderer von Hoffmann von Fallersleben, war Gründungsmitglied der Bach-Gesellschaft und gilt als Wiederentdecker von Heinrich Schütz. 1812 unternahm er eine Reise nach Italien, wo er Kopien von Kompositionen des 16. bis 18. Jahrhunderts anfertigte; die Sammlung wird heute in der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin aufbewahrt. Mosevius, gleichfalls Jurist, hatte lange als Schauspieler und Sänger gewirkt, bevor er mach Zelters Vorbild 1825 in Breslau eine Singakademie gründete. Er wirkte als Gesangslehrer und Universitätsmusikdirektor (1827-32), Leiter des Akademischen Instituts für Kirchenmusik (1831), und Gründer des Musikalischen Cirkels für die Aufführung geistlicher Musik (1834). Das Institut führte sowohl italienische Oratorien als auch solche von Mendelssohn, Carl Loewe und Louis Spohr auf. Ein Jahr nach Mendelssohns Wiederaufführung von Bachs Matthäuspassion in Berlin studierte Mosewius sie in Breslau 1830 mit überwältigendem Erfolg ein. Als Dirigent und Forscher nahm er sich der Popularisierung Bachs an, und Breslau wurde zu einem der wichtigsten Zentren der Bachpflege bis 1945. Durch seine Aktivitäten und Schriften erlangte Mosevius internationale Anerkennung.

To the Königsberg mathematician Otto Hesse (1811-74) who had submitted contributions for his "Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik", informing him that all his five treatises are going to press as he writes: "[...] Ihre Abhandlungen sind jetzt so eben unter der Preße (Fünf an der Zahl. Ich glaube, das sind sie alle). Die erste, größeste, ist schon gedrukt, und die übrigen werden unmittelbar und sehr rasch folgen. Ich hoffe, Ihnen in wenigen Wochen die besonderen Abdruke durch Buchhändlergelegenheit zu senden. Ich bitte, erhalten Sie dem Journale und mir ferner Ihre Gewogenheit und senden Sie recht bald neue Beiträge. Dieselben sollen jetzt nicht mehr so lange auf den Abdruk warten.

        Typed Letter Signed on "McKim, Mead & White" stationery, 4to, New York, March 2, 1900

      Letters of Stanford White are rarely available and ours to noted American artist Thomas Wilmer Dewing is particularly noteworthy. White writes to Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938), American painter and White's friend, commenting on Dewing's exhibit in March 1900 at the Montross Gallery in New York. White writes that the exhibit, "is perfectly bully. My only regret was that you did not have the big Cheney picture and the panel of your little girl and the two pussy cats which Freer has...." Overall, White thinks Dewing's show is "beautiful." In the next sentence White includes a name in holograph difficult to decipher but possibly Montross, the gallery owner. "I think [holograph name] ought to have a more noticeable sign than he had. I did not know he was on the top floor and went rushing all around trying to find him...." In the final sentence, White refers to "the Detroit matter." As I understand, everything is getting along swimmingly in the Detroit matter." He signs, "Stanford." White refers to the "big Cheney picture" not exhibited in Dewing's show. Dewing had painted a portrait of the sisters Louise and Anne W Cheney of Connecticut entitled, "The Days," for which White had designed the frame and is now in the collection of the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art. Also mentioned is Detroit businessman Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919), who amassed the most important collection of Whistler in the world. White's mention of "your little girl and the two pussy cats which Freer has" refers to Dewing's painting of his daughter which hung over Freer's living room fireplace. Freer eventually donated his art collection to the Smithsonian which named the Freer Gallery in his honor. The Montross Gallery was named for its owner, Newman Emerson Montross (1849 1932). The gallery, which opened in 1878, represented leading American artists of the time. Stanford White co-founded the architecture and design firm, McKim, Mead & White which designed outstanding New York City landmark buildings including the University Club on Fifth Avenue. Dewing was among White's circle of friends who were prominent artists, and these artists needed frames for their works which White designed. Dewing painted the portrait of White's wife, Bessie, and his sister-in-law, Ella Batavia Emmet. ["The Gilded Age: The Art of the Frame," Wilmer]. Dewing was born in Massachusetts, studied in Paris and settled n New York where he painted female figures, including society women, in a tonalist style influenced by both Whistler and the English Aesthetic Movement. White successfully recommended Dewing for several mural commissions. ["Thomas Wilmer Dewing," Terra foundation for American Art web site]. Dewing was also one of the Ten American Painters - known as "The Ten" - who seceded from the Society of American Artists in 1897 over what they saw as falling standards and increasing commercialism. Montross Gallery exhibited the works of "The Ten." ." Folded, light soiling especially on verso folds, otherwise in fine condition.

        Entomographie de la Russie. Tome V. Lepidoptères de la Russie. I. Nymphalides.

      Moscow, Société Imperiale des Naturalistes, 1851. 4to. Half title, title page, dedication page; ii, 151 pp., 16 finely engraved plates, all hand-coloured and occasionally heightened with Gum Arabic. Original printed wrappers.= A very rare and beautiful work by Johann Gotthelf Fischer de Waldheim (1771-1853), who studied medicine in Leipzig, then travelled to Paris with his friend Alexander von Humboldt where he studied under Cuvier. In 1804 he became professor of natural history at Moscow University. One year later he founded the famous "Société Impériale des Naturalistes de Moscou". Fischer's main interests were palaeontology and entomology. His entomological interest culminated in his five-volume overview of insects from the Russian empire: "Entomographia Imperii Rossici". It is one of the rarest, best-illustrated and most sought-after works on Russian insects. This rare, late section was jointly written with the German entomologist Eduard von Eversmann (1794-1860) who, at the time, was professor of zoology in Kasan. It deals with colourful Macrolepidoptera (Argynnis, Melitaea, Vanessa, Limenitis, etc.). Handwritten, signed dedication by De Waldheim in the front wrapper top margin. Text uncut. Some toning to a few text leaves, slight bump to lower inner corner. The plates are stunningly coloured and absolutely clean. A very good copy.

        Large set of 84 leaves with original full colour drawings of human anatomical (surgical) pathology, and two tinted drawings of medical instruments.

      Paris, 1851-1863. 136 detailed original drawings on 86 mostly thick, stiff boards in portfolio, of which 75 sheets with full colour drawings by Léveillé, as well as two tinted ink and pencil drawings, and nine unsigned or signed by contemporary medical illustrators (including one by Lackerbauer), and two printed chromolithographed plates after Léveillé. Sheet size varying from 13.0 x 14.2 cm to 50.0 x 63.1 cm. The majority with a greatest width well over 25 cm (10"). Preserved in full cloth map with printed paper label (70.0 x 52 x 3.5 cm).= Unique and great set of original medical watercolour drawings, nearly all by Jean-Baptiste Léveillé [sometimes spelled Leveillé]. Léveillé, a pupil of Henri Nicolas Jacob, was one of the greatest anatomy painters of the nineteenth century. He was responsible for 92 folio plates of fine anatomical illustrations in Bourgery and Jacob's "Traité complet de l'anatomie de l'homme" (published between 1832-1854), the "Anatomie élémentaire" by the same authors; and the excellent anatomical-neurological illustrations in Ludovic Hirschfeld's "Névrologie et organes des sens" (first published in 1853), where his contribution was regarded as enough substantive to regard him as co-author. "The Traité de l'Anatomie by Bourgery and Jacob and the Néurologie by Hirschfeld and Léveillé are among the best works in medical iconography. They are considered to rank in importance with other magnificent atlases due to their excellent plates and precise descriptive text. They set an new standard in anatomical illustration and made the artist devoted to anatomy a scientific collaborator of his scientist in anatomy." [R. Hildebrand, in Anat Anz. (1985) 158(4): 363-372]. In total, Léveillé contributed many hundreds of illustrations to at least 14 major anatomical works, and to numerous smaller studies published in, mainly French, medical journals. Among his works is also a suite of 22 plates illustrating human races as part of Dumont d'Urville's "Voyage au Pôle Sud et dans L?Océanie". The present set of plate consists of original, mostly finished, drawings of the human anatomy, mostly anatomical pathology, including ulcerating tumours. The majority of the drawing were made after objects operated upon by "Mr Maisonneuve". This is Jacques Gilles Maisonneuve (1809-1897), a French surgeon and student of Guillaume Dupuytren. Maisonneuve is notable as the first surgeon to explain the role of external rotation in the production of ankle fractures. The eponymously named Maisonneuve fracture describes a specific fibular fracture (Wikipedia). Apparently Maisonneuve also had a keen interest in cancers, in particular of the oral cavity and jaw, and in the reproductive organs. Several plate captions were written by Maisonneuve, one is signed by him. Other organs are less well-represented in Léveillé's drawings, but we see detailed illustrations of tumours in the neck, the bladder, the eye, and in several other organs. A few drawings were made by other artists. One is signed "P. Lackerbauer ad nat. pinx[i]t 1852". Pierre Lackerbauer was an accomplished artist and lithographer in his own right. For instance, he illustrated the "Atlas d'anatomie pathologique co-authored with Lancereaux, published in 1871; and a finely illustrated work with superb algae drawings, "Le monde de la mer" (1866). One set of two drawings of an eyelid operation is clearly more simple; they are signed, in pencil, R. [or L.?] Desterne. These drawings, although adequate and scientifically correct, form a strong contrast with Léveillé's work which is meticulous in its rendering of fine details, colouring, structure, and texture; it may be said that in clarity and vigour it even surpasses everything that can be achieved with photography. Nearly all the plates are in a very good condition. Only few boards are slightly to moderately toned; there is little or no foxing. In all a very good set of these fine and rare drawings. A full list of illustration details (subjects, date, sizes, caption texts -including patient's data and case histories-, state, and various other remarks) is available upon request.

        König Nußknacker und der arme Reinhold. Ein Kindermährchen in Bildern

      Frankfurt am Main, Literarische Anstalt (Rütten & Löning), o.J. (um 1851). - Heinrich Hoffmann, in erster Linie bekannt durch den "Struwwelpeter" ließ die Spielzeugfiguren, die er (wahrscheinlich für seine Kinder) während einer Reise in Nürnberg gekauft hatte, in märchenhafter Weise lebendig werden. Der Titelheld Reinhold liegt krank im Bett und im Traum erscheint ihm der Nußknackerkönig, der ihm seinen Hofstaat vorstellt, welche aus Seiffener Spielzeugfiguren und den Struwwelpeterkindern besteht. Am Weihnachtsmorgen erwacht Reinhold zur Überraschung seiner Mutter gesund. In der Stube unter dem geschmückten Weihnachtsbaum stehen König Nußknacker und alle Spielzeuge, die der König Reinhold im Traum vorgestellt hat. Durch diese Geschichte wurde auch erstmals ein Bezug zwischen dem Nußknacker und der Weihnachtszeit hergestellt. Im Ganzen trotz einiger Nutzungs- und Alterungsspuren gut erhalten, wohl früher (zweiter?) Druck der ersten Ausgabe, das Titelblatt nun in die Seitenzählung eingeschlossen. Wegen durchaus respektloser Zeilen wie z.B. „Die Mützen flogen weit empor und jubelnd sang der ganze Chor: Heil dir, du Knupperhans, hölzern in Pracht und Glanz, heil, Knacker dir. Und als das Lied zuende war, da rief die ganze Kinderschar: es lebe hoch, es lebe froh, der König Nußknackerio" brachte das Buch seinem Verlag bei der Zensurbehörde erst einmal eine Verbotsverfügung wegen Majestätsbeleidigung ein Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 296 25 x 19,5cm, mod. Halbleinen, koloriertes Titelbl. an den Rändern hinterlegt, 32 Bl. mit handkolorierten Holzschnitten (Titelbl. in die Paginierung einbezogen) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Woman Travels through Europe, Morocco and Tangier Visiting a Harem and Watches a Public Hanging in Venice

      Italy, Spain, Morocco, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, England, 1851-1874. Journal of travels and special events in the charmed life of Charlotte Dent, a privileged and confident young woman born into an upper-class elite family whose legacy is tied to the restoraion of the Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, with highlights being a year spent in Venice whilst it was still crown land of the Austrian Empire, a three-week tour of Tangier, and intimate details of her private life. Qto. 502 pages. A fine burgundy morocco binding sold by William Burnside in Blackheath, with ornate gilt tooling to front and spine, gilt tooled turn-ins, five raised bands, original green star-patterned end papers, leafs watermarked J Whatman 1851, and featuring a genuine Bramah lock and key system engraved "J Bramah, 124 Piccadilly" with the two original skeleton keys. Volume measures 24,5 x 20 x 4 cm. A most absorbing and very personal diary of continental travels and upper-class life hobnobbing with royalty and gentry, the writer being Miss Charlotte Wilkinson Dent, an educated socialite, an adventurous woman, and member of the patrician Dent family connected to Sudeley Castle. Her father was a brother of John and William Dent who purchased the castle; her first cousin was Emma Dent who completed restoration works and published a history of the castle. Emma (née Brocklehurst) was one of Charlotte's bridesmaids when she married Captain Arnold Thompson of the Royal Artillery in 1854. Charlotte was the only daughter of Major Robert Dent, Esq. (1793-1853) who served in the Horse Grenadier Guards, is listed as a member of the Society of Antiquities of London in 1802, and who died only fourteen months before she married in 1854. She is named after her mother Charlotte, née Robbarts. She travelled widely throughout Europe as a young woman, before and after she married. As a wealthy aristocrat, she drew the public eye, and the events of her life were seldom private even when they ought to have been, including the death of her young son and a previous stillborn birth, both of which she describes. Previous to her marriage, Charlotte Wilkinson Dent is named in "The India Office and Burma Office List (1852)" as a "Proprietor of East-India Stock", as are separately named, widow Mrs. C. Dent residing at Lee in Kent (presumably her mother), Mr. Thomas Dent, Esq. at Canton, a William Dent on London, and others. A public hanging by Austrian rulers in Venice, a Moroccan harem, ancient architecture, traditional festivals, emperor's palaces, grand weddings, dining with diplomats and royalty - these are but some of the events which are so eloquently described in the young partisan's fine manuscript hand. When her diary begins, Charlotte was living in Manor House, Lee, England, another historic site with which she is associated. Dating back to 1772 and famed as the residence of the Baring merchant banking family, Sir Francis Baring (1740-1810) purchased it in 1796, bequeathing the Manor House and Gardens to his son Thomas Baring (1799-1873) who leased it to private tenants, Charlotte's family residing there from 1848 and into the mid to late 1850s. A fine morocco journal, complete with a robust high quality Bramah lock, this volume was gifted to Charlotte by her mother as she departed for her first continental journey in 1851, departing on 5 September from the Lee Manor House in a Clarence type horse-drawn carriage with a driver, for an extensive stay in Venice. With her travel companions Clinton, Marianne and Polly who may be her siblings, the writer settled in Venice for nearly a year, sharing numerous dinners and soiréees with nobility and gentry - Dukes and Duchesses, Princesses, Counts, leading military men including politicians, Generals, and Governors, from several countries. Sojourns are made to the spa resort village Recoaro Terme, the Prosecco producing town of Treviso, and other prestigious locations. Pastimes included, as expected from a refined young Victorian lady, reading the latest published novels, strolls at the town piazza, garden walks, devotions, and playing the piano. At the time ruled by Franz Joseph I of Austria, the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia, now part of Italy, some Ventians protested for independence, and payed for it with their lives. Much to her dismay, Charlotte witnessed a famous revolutionary being hanged by Austrian officials in a public square, a most disturbing sight for a young, refined woman. Her return journey included a short tour of Vienna in Austria, and several cities in Germany, arriving back in England 3 November 1852, at the Pierremount House, Broadstairs, on the Isle of Thanet, in Kent. This section of the volume, Charlotte's first travel account, is an elegant, detailed work revealing the lives and relations of nineteenth century nobles, and consists of 226 pages. Excerpts from the text, pertaining to Venice, etc.: "Journal of my journey to Venice..." "Friday Sept 5th 1851. Left Manor House, Lee about a quarter past three in a hired Clarence... Reached London Bridge at 1/4 past four, found Uncle Lancelot there..." "[Venice] Sept. 28th... at two o'clock went by appointment to the Infanta's... she is young...her name is Maria Béatrice, she is a daughter of the Duke of Modena & sister to the Countesse de Chambord, alias Duchesse de Bordeaux... " "Oct. 10th. Was very industrious working at the muslin curtains for the dining room the greater part of the morning... went out to the gondola, called first on Madame Chwostoff, the Russian Countess, and found her at home, she is very plain... takes snuff, and smokes... then went to see Madame Astruc... then walked to the Piazza..." "Oct. 11th. There was an unfortunate man hung on the Campo di Marte this morning by the Austrian Government for having purchased Revolutionary prints & possessing Revolutionary papers. His name was Luigi Dottesio, & he was denounced by one of his friends and countrymen. The man who sold the prints is condemned to ten years imprisonment in a fortress with heavy irons, - this seems severe... I can not help thinking about this execution all day." [Luigi Dottesio (1814-1851) was an Italian patriot who was very active in the distribution of anti-Austrian pamphlets, before and after 1848. Intercepted by the gendarmes in Maslianico while he was trying to illegally cross the Swiss frontier, he was executed for those activities by Austrians in Venezia, in 1851.] "Nov. 1st.... A civil note arrived from Mr. Cheney... to dine with him... it was decided I should refuse...he is not married.... Madame Esterhazy, Lady Lorell, General Wallmoden, Maréchal Marmont, and Prince & Princess Yablonowski dined.... [Edward Cheney (1803-1884) was a prominent member of the British community in Venice]" "Nov. 21st... to the Salute, there were two bridges of boats built across the Grand Canal... the Fête of the Salute which was erected by the Senate in 1632... a procession of priests... crowds of people... Mrs. Ruskin [Efie, wife of writer John Ruskin] in a most wonderful bonnet & Lady Sorell [wife of the late Lieut-Col Sir Thomas Stephen Sorell, consul-general for the Lombardo-Venetian States] ... " "Nov. 30th... to dine... the party consisted of Princess Hohenlohe [Queen Victoria's half sister Princess Feodora of Hohenlohe Langenburg], Princess Yablonowski [Polish], the old Marshall, Count Falkenhayn [Prusssian], Mr. D'Erico, Count Festetics [Hungarian]... " "December 1st. Princess Yablonowski called..." "January 5th [1852]... appointment to go to the Belli Arti" with Mrs. Ruskin... then went to the Ducal Palace..." "Feb. 5th. Signor Buzzolla came... Arranged the room &c. for our dance this evening... the first night of the Rigatta... The people all seemed pleased, Princess Hohenlohe looked very nice... I wore a white tarlatan dress... Roman Pearls..." "Feb.13th... paid a visit to Madame de Quesney, dame d'honneur to the Duchesse de Berri, & asked to be allowed d'offrir nos hommages à son Altesse Royale..." "March 14th. General Reischach called... on the Piazzetta, the Capitaine Pisztory, also Colonel Cameron. About eight went to a large concert at the Duchess de Berri's, there were numerous royalties present, the Grand Duke Constantine & Grand Duchess, the Duc & Duchess de Bordeaux, the Duke & Duchess of Modena, the Duchess of Parma &c... covered with beautiful diamonds... sang with great taste..." "July 24th. Very busy packing as I shall have to turn out of my nice large cool room next week for Lord Westmoreland" "August 1st. Lord Westmoreland & Lord Burghersh dined." "Sept. 21st. [Vienna]... beautiful Cathedral...stonework of the spire... We mounted the Santa Tower, saw the great bell made of 180 pieces of cannon taken from the Turks... went to the Emperor's Palace... Emperor's carriages... Church of the Augustines..." "June 15th [Manor House, Lee, England]. Arnold's thirty second birthday & the day on which we were married... My bridesmaids were Agnes Brucks, Sophia Pereira, Emma Dent, Sabine Dent, Annie Young & my wee niece Marianne... Captain Adye was Arnold's man [General Sir John Miller Adye, soldier and artist]" In January 1854 Charlotte attended an Artillery Soirée with her future husband, whom she had met in 1848. Details of their engagement and wedding consume the following few pages, which are followed by some significant events of their early years together. Small newspaper clippings of such events, and also Charlotte's travels abroad, disperse the manuscript text, revealing that the couple had little privacy, even in difficult times of loss including birthing complications. Her husband is Captain Arnold Thompson, Royal Artillery, who would become Lieutenant-Colonel circa October 1859, Colonel on 6 February 1870, and who achieved rank of Major-General, retiring on 1 May 1880. He may have been from Lanarkshire, a historic county in the central Lowlands of Scotland, not far from the border of England; further research is required to confirm. In May 1855 Arnold was suddenly despatched to HMS Candia by the Royal Army to participate in the Crimean War. His father "Captain Thompson" and his mother, stayed with Charlotte for couple of months. Charlotte then went to visit her mother at the Lee manor House. A busy itinerary of soirées and sojourns continues in England, and as far as Ballincollig in Ireland, Charlotte and Arnold visiting castles and fine estates. A daughter was born at their Woolrich home in 1857. An entry made on 19 November 1858 states that when in Broadstairs the couple frequently stayed in the apartment of Dr. Symes Thompson (1837-1906), a prominent physician and the son of Dr Theophilus Thompson (1807-1860), suggesting her husband's relation to this pedigree. Charlotte and Arnold had a son in 1860, also born in Woolrich. In the spring of 1861 the diarist boarded the steamship Megaera headed for Spain with her husband, to settle in Gibraltar, in a "Europa Pass Cottage". It is possible that Arnold was posted at the Europa Pass Batteries, a group of artillery batteries, located north-west of Europa Point in the south of Gibraltar. [In 1859 the battery had seven guns that looked over the west shoreline around Little Bay. Close to the shore was the Devil's Bowling Green Battery that was overlooked by this battery and the Buena Vista Battery.] Charlotte's mother died when she was in Gibraltar in 1861. Here also, only a few months later, her infant son of 2 years 9 months, Gerald Arnold Bunbury Thompson, died on 25 April 1862, a tragedy which is painfully described in her diary. In 1867 Charlotte and Arnold relocated to the Buena Vista New Mess House, accommodations provided to them by Gibraltar's Governor Sir Richard Airey. Charlotte travelled back to England several times during her stay at Gibraltar. By September 1867 the couple had to vacate once more, thus making plans to visit Tangier across the Strait. In Tangier they attended an extravagant Jewish wedding, as well as a traditional Moorish wedding, both of which are described with splendid detail. Taking in local custom with every opportunity, and clearly having high class connections, they were granted a most intimate tour of the Pasha's palace, harem, and grounds. The 7th October is her last entry, departing from Tangier. Sixteen (16) engaging pages of the diary are devoted specifically to Tangier and Moroccan custom. Excerpts from the text, pertaining to Tangier: "Tuesday, Sept. 17th [1867] Left Gibraltar by the Hercules for Tangier... Victoria Hotel... found only Captn. Stephenson (84th Fusiliers)... saw various Moors &c riding, the costumes &c seemed all so strange." "... on mules with Moorish Guides to visit Cape Spartel" "... visited the Belgian Consul's home.. rode to Mount Washington... the summer residence of Sir John Hay [Sir John Hay Drummond-Hay (1816-93) diplomat and Consul General] returning we heard Moorish music in a garden... nice Moorish merchants..." "... to the Pasha's Camp, we were 3 1/2 hours going... found about 100 soldiers, no good horses, & the Pasha was asleep... costumes were very picturesque... heard that the Pasha's Camp had been attacked by the rebels..." "Sept. 30th. Went to see Mehammed's (interpreter to the hotel) wife... friends were with her... Then we visited a large Moorish house full of blk slaves, all the floors... colored tiles... to several Jew's houses... some of the women shewed us their jewels...the head-dress they wear when married..." "Oct. 2nd. Managed to see the Pasha's Harem, the court of the Palace was very handsome. I cannot say as much for the wives... The first wife, an enormous dark colored woman was very civil & shewed us one of her dresses... There were hosts of small colored children running about... took our leave & went to the Pasha's stables... The Pasha past... he was gorgeously attired..." "Had an interview with the Second Governor Abdul Meleb... his wife... her cousin (only fourteen though married)..." "Moorish Harems appear uncommonly dirty downstairs where they seem always to live in rooms looking onto the courtyard or patio... upstairs a room covered with Moorish rugs, cushions round the floor to sit on, a bed at each end & glasses frames stuck up so high one cannot see in them." "Bought some Moorish jewellery... merchants from the interior paid us a visit in our sitting room. They wore high white turbans & fine white cashmere Haiks..." From Tangier the couple embarked on a voyage to Vigo for short tour of Spain, from Vigo to Cadiz, then by rail to Seville, where she met by surprise the former Military Secretary of Gibraltar Arthur James Lyon Fremantle who greeted her more than enthusiastically. A six month stay in Seville afforded many tours, festivals, and Cathedrals to visit. Via Cordoba, and Malaga where they watched the making of terra cotta figures, to Granada where they stayed for twelve days and visited numerous sites. Charlotte's tour of Spain is described over 35 pages. Returning to the port of Malaga, a departure voyage in March 1868 saw them safely to London. Following entries continue to unfold local travels and gentility, a sort-of upper class insouciant nomadic lifestyle afforded only by the affluent non-working class. This section of the diary yields yet more significant names and historic English estates. For example, on 3 November 1870 Charlotte travelled with a friend named Ethel by train then omnibus to the stately Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, the seat of the Duke of Devonshire, then occupied by William Cavendish, 7th Duke of Devonshire. On the 1st of December another Dent family wedding took place, Charlotte's husband Arnold coming from Sheerness for the grand occasion. In 1871 Charlotte documents her tour of Switzerland and an extended stay in Paris, with friends Ethel, Henriette, and a maid. In 1873, Arnold bids her farewell as she leaves on an extensive tour of Germany, with sojourns to Belgium and France. These travels are described over 110 pages. The volume concludes with a quote from Scottish novelist and poet George John Whyte-Melville. Further excerpts from the text: "Seville. March 28th [1868] ... went into the cathedral... beautiful stonework... to my surprise I was accosted by Col. Freemantle formerly Military Secretary at Gibraltar... introduced me to his wife..." "Buxton. Nov. 3rd [1870] ...by train to Bowsley & thence by Omnibus to Chatsworth. The Duke & his family were residing there, so all the fountains were playing..." "1874. I shall bid farewell to this dear Diary given me by my Mother twenty three years ago..." Charlotte's connection to the Sudeley Castle: Brothers John and William Dent, wealthy glovemakers from Worcester bought the Sudeley Castle from the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos in 1837, having previously purchased the rest of the estate from Lord Rivers in 1830. They began an ambitious restoration programme, which was continued by their nephew John Coucher Dent who inherited the castle in 1855, and who had married Emma Brocklehurst, daughter of John Brocklehurst (1788-1870), one of Macclesfield's first MPs, a banker, and head of the family's successful silk milling business. Emma Dent was an intellectual, cultured and industrious Victorian lady who cared deeply for the Sudeley Castle estate and neighbouring Winchcombe. In 1877 she published the "Annals of Winchcombe and Sudeley." Following her husband's death in 1885 much of her energy was devoted to their improvement and continuing welfare. In 1890 Emma had the building works at Sudeley Castle completed, which included the North and West Lodges, the Jubilee addition to the Western range, the North Tower and the new main entrance from Winchcombe. Charlotte's time at Manor House, Lee: The 1852 Journal of the Horticultural Society of London indicates that Mrs. Dent (Charlotte's mother) was a resident there at the time, having a gardener who was growing grapes on the property. Even earlier, March 1848, Mrs. Dent appears, noted as residing at manor House, Lee, in Kent, in The Athenæum: A Journal of Literature, Science, the Fine Arts. Built in 1772 as a country house, the Manor House was owned from 1796 by the banking family of Baring. In 1801 the Barings bought Stratton Park in Hampshire, a large estate which included the village of Micheldever. They subsequently leased the Lee Manor House. The first tenant of the Barings seems to have been Frederick Perkins, whom FW Hart describes as an opulent brewer, and who moved out in the 1830s. The Barings returned to the Manor House at the end of Perkins' lease, the House being used by Sir Francis Thornhill Baring who would become 1st Baron Northbrook in 1866, and who was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1839 to 1841. The latter was the grandson of the original Sir Francis. His father would have still owned the house at that stage, it didn't pass onto Sir Francis Thornhill Baring until 1848 when his father died, at which time he lessed the estate to the Dent family. In the late 1850s Henry Burrard Farnall, was the tenant. He was a Poor Law Board Inspector, and along with Florence Nightingale, instituted the first enquiries into the quality of nursing in workhouse infirmaries. By 1881 the Manor House was home to the Military "crammer" School run by Henry Wolffram which was designed to prepare young men for the entrance examinations for the Army. Earl of Northbrook sold the Manor House and estate to the London County Council for £8,835 in 1898. The house became a public library in 1902 and the garden a public park.
