1833 Caroline Bonaparte Hand-written letter signed Florence Damiano Muoni Naples. Letter dated August 21, 1833. Addressed to a Madamoiselle Braig? In addition to the “Fiorenze” postal stamping, there is a stamping from Damiano Muoni Italian historian and numismatist. Letter was found at an estate sale in Narragansett, RI contained inside an additional envelope from Dodd & Livingston Rare Books And Manuscripts. Fourth Ave and 30th Street New York. The envelope is specially designed for their autographs, and the name of Caroline Bonaparte is hand written on the envelope. THIS IS NOT THE AUTOGRAPH. I believe that is administrative. The actual letter has her actual signature. Really interesting piece of ephemera. Caroline Bonaparte was youngest sister of Napoleon Bonaparte. She was married to Joachim Murat a General of Napoleon’s who was declared King of Naples, and she was Queen Consort of Naples. After the revolution, Murat was executed, and Caroline went into exile in Florence. This letter is during her exile period, and she is married to her second husband. This letter has not been fully translated, but there are mentions of Trieste and she may have been communicating with someone from her first husband’s family (Murats). Letter is remarkably well-preserved. It is folded, as it was also used as an envelope. Some period stamps (stamping) on it. Some wear on the papering hole that doesn’t remove any of th ink, and some wear along the outer edges. The envelope from Dodd & Livingston is in very good condition thick stock paper, with slight wear and bend along the edges. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Autographs\Historical”.
