1810s THOMAS MOORE ALS Autograph HANDWRITTEN LETTER Irish IRELAND Poet SINGER
Wonderful handwritten letter from Irish poet Thomas Moore; postmarks (one looks like Piccadilly). Appears to be addressed to a Sir Charles Boyle or Doyle. Postmark date hard to read – possibly 1817? Thomas Moore (28 May 1779 25 February 1852) was an Irish poet, singer, songwriter, and entertainer, now best remembered for the lyrics of “The Minstrel Boy” and “The Last Rose of Summer”. He was responsible, with John Murray, for burning Lord Byron’s memoirs after his death. In his lifetime he was often referred to as Anacreon Moore. From a relatively early age Moore showed an interest in music and other performing arts. He sometimes appeared in musical plays with his friends, such as The Poor Soldier by John O’Keeffe (music by William Shield), and at one point had ambitions to become an actor. [1] Moore attended several Dublin schools including Samuel Whyte’s English Grammar School in Grafton Street where he learned the English accent with which he spoke for the rest of his life. [2] In 1795 he graduated from Trinity College, which had recently allowed entry to Catholic students, in an effort to fulfill his mother’s dream of him becoming a lawyer. Moore was initially a good student, but he later put less effort into his studies. His time at Trinity came amidst the ongoing turmoil following the French Revolution, and a number of his fellow students such as Robert Emmet were supporters of the United Irishmen movement, although Moore himself never was a member. [3] This movement sought support from the French government to launch a revolution in Ireland. In 1798 a rebellion broke out followed by a French invasion, neither of which succeeded. Besides Emmet, another formative influence was Edward Hudson, also a fellow student at Trinity College, who played a crucial role in introducing Moore to Edward Bunting’s A General Collection of the Ancient Irish Music (1797), later one of the main sources of his own collection of Irish Melodies. Thomas Moore was born at 12 Aungier Street in Dublin, Ireland. [5] over his father’s grocery shop, his father being from the Kerry Gaeltacht and his mother, Anastasia Codd, from Wexford. He had two younger sisters, Kate and Ellen. [6] Moore attended several Dublin schools including Samuel Whyte’s English Grammar School in Grafton Street where he learned the English accent with which he spoke for the rest of his life. [7] In 1795 he graduated from Trinity College, which had recently allowed entry to Catholic students, in an effort to fulfill his mother’s dream of him becoming a lawyer. [8] This movement sought support from the French government to launch a revolution in Ireland. Besides Emmet, another formative influence was Edward Hudson, also a fellow student at Trinity College, who played a crucial role in introducing Moore to Edward Bunting’s A General Collection of the Ancient Irish Music (1797), later one the main sources of his own collection of Irish Melodies. The soldier and politician Lord Moira was a major early patron of Moore. For many years Moore hoped his connection with him would lead to public office but he was ultimately disappointed. In 1799 he travelled to London to study law at Middle Temple. He was helped in this by his friends in the expatriate Irish community in London, including Barbara, widow of Arthur Chichester, 1st Marquess of Donegall. She and her sister became his lifelong friends. However, it was as a poet, translator, balladeer and singer that he found fame. His work soon became immensely popular and included “The Harp That Once Through Taras Halls”, “Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms”, “The Meeting of the Waters” and many other specimens from his collections of Irish Melodies. Often simply called “Moore’s Melodies”, they were originally published between 1808 and 1834 (see below). But Moore was far more than a balladeer. He had major success as a society figure in London, meeting the Prince of Wales on several occasions and enjoying in particular the patronage of the Irish aristocrat Lord Moira. Moore stayed repeatedly at Moira’s house at Donnington Park in Leicestershire where he enjoyed the extensive library. He also collaborated with Michael Kelly and Charles Edward Horn in staging operas to his librettos in 1801 and 1811. North America In 1803 he was appointed registrar to the Admiralty in Bermuda. He spent around three months on the island, but he found his work very light and uninspiring. There were several other prize courts nearby and very few captured ships were brought to Bermuda leaving him little to do. Although he drew inspiration from the scenery of Bermuda he found its society limited and soon departed for Norfolk in Virginia. [11] Because of his brief stay there, he has sometimes been treated as an unofficial poet laureate of Bermuda. [12] His “Ode to Nea” caused something of a scandal since the language suggested a love affair and local gossip, rightly or wrongly, identified Nea with Hester Tucker, the young wife of one of his colleagues. From Norfolk he travelled across the United States and Canada in a Grand Tour. During this visit Moore developed a deeply critical view of the United States. He particularly disliked the governing Democratic-Republican Party and the President Thomas Jefferson. While in Washington he stayed with Anthony Merry, the British ambassador, and met Jefferson briefly: the meeting had a touch of farce since the President apparently mistook Moore, an exceptionally small man, for a child. He then travelled through various American towns and cities, enjoying his time most in Philadelphia where he already had an established reputation. He then travelled northwards to British-controlled Canada, stopping at the Niagara Falls. In Montreal, he was invited to dine at the Beaver Club. At Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue he wrote one of his most famous works, the “Canadian Boat Song”. Lord Jeffrey whom Moore nearly fought in a duel in 1806 after a bad review of his work. The circumstances of the aborted duel led to public ridicule of Moore, although he later became friends with Jeffrey. It was after this trip that he published his book Epistles, Odes, and Other Poems, which featured a paean to the historic Cohoes Falls called Lines Written at the Cohos [sic], or Falls of the Mohawk River, among other famous verses. A repeated theme in his writing on the United States were his observations of the institution of slavery. Moore’s mocking criticisms of the United States provoked outrage in America and led to a number of rebuttals. [14] In Britain, a critical review of the work led to Moore challenging Francis Jeffrey, an editor, to a duel. They met at Chalk Farm but the duel was interrupted by the arrival of the authorities and they were arrested. Reports that Moore’s opponent had been given an empty pistol continued to dog Moore and led to persistent mockery of him. Lord Byron derisively referred to Moore’s “leadless pistol” and wrote: “on examination, the balls of the pistols, like the courage of the combatants, were found to have evaporated”. [16] Moore was angered by this and sent a letter to Byron that hinted that unless the remarks were clarified Moore was prepared to fight Byron. However, Byron had left Britain to travel abroad and the letter did not reach him. When the two men eventually met each other the dispute was settled and they soon became very close friends. Between 1808 and 1810 Moore appeared each year with the Kilkenny Players in a charitable series of performances in Kilkenny staged by a mixture of the Irish elite and professional actors. Moore appeared frequently in comic roles in plays like Sheridan’s The Rivals and O’Keeffe’s The Castle of Andalusia. Moore married an actress, Elizabeth “Bessy” Dyke, younger sister of tragedienne-to-be Mary Ann Duff, in 1811, whom he had met with the Kilkenny players where she was working with her sisters. [19] She was the daughter of an East India Company official, but was raised with her two sisters by her mother. Moore did not initially tell his parents of his marriage, possibly because his wife was an English Protestant, but more probably because his marriage to a woman without a dowry would not help his financial prospects. His marriage was generally judged to be very happy, although Bessy shrank from fashionable society to such an extent that many of her husband’s friends never met her (some of them jokingly doubted her very existence); those who did meet her nearly all had a high regard for her. “The Last Rose of Summer” MENU0:00 sung by Adelina Patti in 1906 Problems playing this file? In the early years of his career, Moore’s work was largely generic and had he died at this point he would likely not have been considered an Irish poet. [20] From 1806 to 1807 Moore dramatically changed his style of writing and focus. Following a request by the publishers James and William Power, he wrote lyrics to a series of Irish tunes in the manner of Haydn’s settings of British folksongs, with Sir John Andrew Stevenson as arranger of the music. They were originally published in ten volumes and a supplement between 1808 and 1834, the musical arrangements of the last volumes after Stevenson’s death (1833) being done by Henry Bishop. Moore became best known for these Irish Melodies, which were enormously popular, containing songs such as “The Minstrel Boy”, “The Last Rose of Summer”, “Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms” and “Oft in the Stilly Night”. Several examples of his music, such as Farewell! But Whenever You Welcome the Hour are available online. There was never a collected volume of Moore’s Melodies in his lifetime, but many appeared not long afterwards. Some of them were made by Irish composers wanting to improve the accompaniments of Stevenson, which were often considered too simple or not appropriate to the songs. Among these were arrangements by Michael William Balfe London: Novello & Co. 1859, John William Glover (Dublin: James Duffy, 1859), Francis Robinson Jr. (Dublin: Robinson & Bussell, 1863) and John Liptrot Hatton London: Novello & Co. Other works In 1811 Moore wrote M. A comic opera, in collaboration with Charles Edward Horn. Although it received positive reviews Moore didn’t enjoy writing for the stage and decided not to work in the medium again despite being occasionally tempted. [22] Throughout the 1810s Moore wrote a number of political satires. After originally being a devoted supporter of the Prince of Wales, he turned against him after 1811 when he became Prince Regent and was seen to embrace the Tory government in spite of his past association with the Whigs. Another major target was the Foreign Secretary Lord Castlereagh who was repeatedly lampooned in Moore’s works such as Tom Crib’s Memorial to Congress which parodied the Aix-la-Chapelle diplomatic conference between Britain and her Allies portraying it as a boxing match. [23] In 1818 Moore wrote The Fudge Family in Paris, a story in which a British family travels to experience the sights of Paris; a sequel, The Fudge Family in England, followed in 1835. Around this time Moore also began working on a biography of the playwright and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan, whom he met numerous times, but partly due to legal reasons it was not published until 1825. In company with Lord John Russell he went to the Continent and after a Grand Tour through France, Switzerland and Italy lived in Paris until 1822 (notably with the family of Martin de Villamil), when the debt was finally paid off partly with the help of his latest patron Lord Lansdowne and with an advance given him by his publisher Longmans. During his travels across Europe he briefly spent time with Lord Byron in Venice: this was to be their last meeting. Byron gave Moore his memoirs with instruction to publish them after his death as a literary executor. Moore was much criticised later for allowing himself to be persuaded to destroy Byron’s memoirs at the behest of Byron’s family because of their damningly honest content. Moore did, however, edit and publish Letters and Journals of Lord Byron, with Notices of his Life in 1830, six years after Byron’s death in Greece. After returning to Britain, Moore published new poetry, but in spite of good reviews and good sales he was growing disillusioned with writing poetry and he began to consider writing novels, a genre made increasingly popular by the success of Walter Scott. In October 1825 Moore’s Memoirs of the Life of Richard Brinsley Sheridan was finally published after nine years of work on and off. It proved very popular, went through a number of editions quickly and helped give Moore a more serious reputation among his literary contemporaries. Thomas Moore, after a painting by Thomas Lawrence He finally settled in Sloperton Cottage at Bromham, Wiltshire, England, and became a novelist and biographer as well as a successful poet. Around the time of the Reform Act he was invited to stand for parliament, and considered it, but nothing came of it. [25] In 1829 he was painted by Thomas Lawrence, one of the last works completed by the artist before his death. [26] In 1830 he sang in front of the future Queen Victoria in a duet with her mother, and later composed the song “Sovereign Woman” in her honour. Moore was for many years a strong advocate for Catholic Emancipation; he regarded its absence as the source of all problems in Ireland and the sole reason behind the 1798 rebellion a point he made in his 1831 biography Life and Death of Lord Edward Fitzgerald. [28] However, he experienced a difficult relationship with the leader of the Catholic Association Daniel O’Connell whom Moore regarded as a demagogue, believing “O’Connell and his ragamuffins have brought tarnish upon Irish patriotism”. [29] Following the passing of the Catholic Relief Act in 1829 Moore believed his involvement in politics terminated, joking to a friend: “Now that the Paddies are happy I consider my politics entirely at an end”. [30] However, he was drawn back into politics by a series of democratic rebellions across Europe in Belgium, France and Poland. [31] Moore had also been a sympathiser with the Greeks in their War of Independence, a passion he shared with his friend Byron. He received a state pension, but his personal life was dogged by tragedy including the deaths of all his five children within his lifetime Anne, age 5, d. 1817; Anastasia Mary, age 17, d. 1829; Olivia as a baby of a few months of age; John Russell, aged 19, d. 1842; and Thomas Lansdowne, aged 27, d. 1849 and a stroke in later life, which disabled him from performances the activity for which he was most renowned. Moore died being cared for by his wife at Sloperton on 26 February 1852. His remains are in a vault at St. Nicholas churchyard, Bromham, within view of his cottage-home, beside his daughter Anastasia. Moore was a frequent visitor to Lord Henry Fitzgerald property at Thames Ditton, Boyle Farm, and the premises were incorporated into Moore’s long poem, The Summer Fête. A bust of Thomas Moore at the Meeting of the Waters. New York Moore is often considered Ireland’s national bard[citation needed] and is to Ireland what Robert Burns is to Scotland. Moore is commemorated in several places: by a plaque on the house where he was born, by busts at The Meetings and Central Park, New York, and by a bronze statue near Trinity College Dublin. There is a road in Walkinstown, Dublin, named Thomas Moore Road, in a series of roads named after famous composers, locally referred to as the Musical Roads. Many composers have set the poems of Thomas Moore to music. They include Gaspare Spontini, Robert Schumann, Hector Berlioz, Charles Ives, William Bolcom, Lori Laitman, Benjamin Britten and Henri Duparc. The song “Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms” is often used in a famous gag in a number of Warner Brothers cartoons, usually involving a piano or Xylophone rigged to explode when a certain note is played. The hero, typically Bugs Bunny, tries to play the melody line of the song, but always misses the rigged note (C above middle C). The villain or rival, finally exasperated, pushes the hero aside and plays the song himself, striking the correct note and blowing himself up. In one instance, however, the protagonist plays the melody on a xylophone and, upon striking the rigged note, the antagonist explodes in an old gag, new twist. ” Many songs of Thomas Moore are cited in works of James Joyce, for example “Silent, O Moyle” in Two Gallants (Dubliners)[33] or “The Last Rose of Summer. Oliver Onions quotes Moore’s poem “Oft in the Stilly Night” in his 1910 ghost story “The Cigarette Case”. [34] List of works.

Bibelot is a late nineteenth century word derived from the French word bel beautiful, meaning a small item of beauty, curiosity or interest. The word ephemera is derived from the sixteenth century Greek word ephmera meaning a printed or hand written paper not meant to be retained for a long period of time. Fine and rare handwritten and signed watermarked letter from the Duke of Clarence later King William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 20 June 1837). He was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. In this letter the Duke refers to the Ecuadorian War of Independence fought from 1820 to 1822 between several South American armies and Spain over control of the lands of the Royal Audience of Quito, a Spanish colonial administrative jurisdiction from which would eventually emerge the modern Republic of Ecuador. The war ended with the defeat of the Spanish forces at the Battle of Pichincha on May 24, 1822. He further refers to “the infamous woman” undoubtedly meaning “Princess” Olivia Serres who spent much of her life claiming to be the product of an alleged secret marriage between Henry Duke of Cumberland (King George III’s brother) and the sister of her guardian. In 1822 she sued for the production of the will of George III in support of her claim, one daughter continued the claim into the 1860’s, which were eventually dismissed as based on forged evidence. The Duke also mentions Capt. Fox, later Major-General who married Mary FitzClarence the Duke’s second daughter by his mistress Mrs Jordan. She became the housekeeper of the State Apartments at Windsor Castle and he the equerry to Queen Adelaide and ADC to the Duke when he became King. The Marquis of Hastings to whom he also refers was Rowdon-Hastings, the Governor of Bengal. In the last 12 months or so, Venezuela, Peru, Guatemala, Panama, and San Domingo had achieved independence from Spain, and on the same day as this letter was written, Brazil from Portugal. Written from his London residence: Bushey House Octr 12 1822 Dear Sir, In answer to your two letters P. At the same time I feel you attentive to the Royal Family. As to the Chaos now going on in South America I agree with you that country must ultimately be independent of Old Spain, but it will require considerable time before any one in his senses were to undertake to put himself at the head of any one of those governments. I thank you for turning your thoughts towards Captain Fox whose head and heart are agreeably good and will be. I make no doubt, well received by the Marquis of Hastings and my daughter treated in the kindest possible manner by the Marchioness. I ever remain yours sincerely William. William, the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain’s House of Hanover. George III created him Duke of Clarence and St Andrews and Earl of Munster on 16 May 1789, He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the “Sailor King”. He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old. His reign saw several reforms: the poor law was updated, child labour restricted, slavery abolished in nearly all the British Empire, and the British electoral system refashioned by the Reform Act 1832. Though William did not engage in politics as much as his brother or his father, he was the last monarch to appoint a Prime Minister contrary to the will of Parliament. Through his brother, the Viceroy of Hanover, he granted that kingdom a short-lived liberal constitution. At the time of his death, William had no surviving legitimate children but he was survived by eight of the ten illegitimate children he had by the actress Dorothea Jordan, with whom he cohabited for 20 years. William was succeeded in the United Kingdom by his niece, Victoria, and in Hanover by his brother, Ernest Augustus I. Size: 22.5 x 18.5 cm approx. Photos form part of the description.

Luther Dummy Taylor Handwritten Letter Signed ALS New York Giants Autograph
Luther “Dummy” Taylor (NY Giants 1900-08) 2-page handwritten and signed letter. This is certainly certainly one of the better Taylor items available, full of autobiographical detail touching on the school for the deaf in Olathe KS, his early days in baseball, John McGraw, and the 1905 World Series. Lanigan, to whom the letter is addressed, is very likely Harold W. Lanigan, writer for The Sporting News. Lanigan wrote a feature story on Taylor for The Sporting News published on December 24, 1942. The letter, dated November 9, 1942 was probably written as part of Lanigan’s research process for the article. The letter is finished off with Taylor’s large, bold signature. Letters such as this one, with actual baseball and biographical content, are extremely tough to come by. The letter is written on two one-sided sheets, each 8.5″ x 11″. Condition is good with mild toning and a few short tears at margins. Each page has mailing folds and the second page has two spots of tape repair on the reverse at the center fold line. Please see photos with listing. Comes with PSA/DNA LOA. The item “Luther Dummy Taylor Handwritten Letter Signed ALS New York Giants Autograph” is in sale since Sunday, April 14, 2019.

Albert Einstein’s Letter on Earth’s Shifting Crust with ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN Diagram, Equations and Annotations plus Typed Letter Signed A. Einstein, one page, 8.5 x 11, blindstamped Princeton letterhead, January 16, 1954. Charles Hapgood, enclosing a carbon copy of a letter he wrote to Mr. Of Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Massachusetts, on Hapgood’s theory of earth crust displacement. ” Includes the two-page carbon copy enclosure, an unsigned typed letter by Einstein which bears several handwritten annotations, including: an original hand-drawn diagram, three original handwritten equations, a term representing tangential force, and five original handwritten anglesthree for “beta” and two for “phi, as well as one holograph word, all by Einstein. Einstein’s letter to Farrington begins, in part: When I read your letterI too hadthe impression that I had overestimated erroneously the dislocating force on the solid crust due to an additional (eccentrically located) mass. More careful consideration has shown me, however, that, paradoxically, your argument is not conclusive. ” Einstein explains: “We imagine the rotating earth with’frozen’ crust. The surface of the crust is then (with reference to the rotating earth) and equipotential surface. If one places excentrically a’small’ sphere of the mass m on this surfacethen this sphere is in equilibrium. ” He draws a diagram to the left, and continues: “One feels therefore induced to believe that for this reason no angular momentum could be produced on the crust by this sphere. Such conclusion would be, however, invalid as shown by the following consideration. ” He goes on to illustrate his point using mathematical equations, and concludes: “I think that the idea of Mr. Hapgood has to be taken quite seriously. Einstein wrote the foreword to Hapgood’s book, The Earth’s Shifting Crust, published by Pantheon Books in 1958. Hapgood’s book denied the existence of continental drift, speculating that the ice mass at one or both poles over-accumulates and destabilizes the Earth’s rotational balance, causing slippage of all or much of Earth’s outer crust around the Earth’s core, which retains its axial orientation. A spectacular scientific letter by Einstein. This is the ONLY Einstein’s letter on Earth’s Shifting Crust in private hands.

RARE! LONG HANDWRITTEN & SIGNED LETTER BY R. CRUMB 1997 withSubject Publication
Up for your consideration is a long, original handwritten letter by R. The letter is signed and appears to be dated Feb. Here’s the story of this amazing, unique, item, as I understand it. A gentleman had a book he wanted to publish and decided to send R. Crumb a copy of it to see if the great Comic legend would be interested in illustrating it. This letter is R. Crumb’s reply to Russ, the author. The letter is in excellent condition. It has never been mounted or framed though it is definitely suitable for it. Also included is an extremely rare copy of Russ’ book, A Complete Guide to Failure: How to Fail at Everything You Do (See Pics #4-6). Crumb mentions in the letter, the book smelled of smoke when he received another copy of it (I assume). This one did, too. I aired it out and today no oder remains. The letter was kept in an archival sleeve and so didn’t suffer this fate. The letter measures 8 1/4 by 11 3/4 inches. It is in very good, lightly handled, condition with no damage or defects that I can see. Crumb would take the time to reply to Russ and do so with such honesty and (it seems to me) compassion is revealing. You can read the book for yourself and see what you think. The book is inscribed to me by Russ on the inside of its front cover. It appears that Russ xeroxed some examples of existing R. Crumb art to the front cover. I should emphasize that R. Crumb had nothing to do with this book in any way- only the letter. The book is enclosed to complete the story painted by this amazing letter. Please note- There is an address in France handwritten by Crumb in the upper right hand corner of the letter. I have no idea who’s address it is. Perhaps it’s Crumb’s, or was at the time. In the interest of the privacy of any and all parties I have blurred out the address in the photos here, but it is there in beautiful Crumb lettering in the actual letter. The entire letter is beautifully lettered with only one instance of White-out that I can see. It can be yours! This is a final sale. This item is absolutely genuine in all respects, as always.
