GREENE (Graham, 1904-1991, Novelist & Playwright)

Typed Letter Signed with autograph corrections to Mr Harding Edgar telling him that he hasn’t got “the revised typescript with the properly collated Boisgobey’s and Gaboriau’s, so I’m not sure how many first Vizetelly editions we have, but this is the list of titles and if you have any titles apart from these I would like to have them whatever the edition...” there follows a list of titles by the two authors with an autograph addition at the end of the list and he then says he is “sorry I’ve missed out a Gaboriau Catastrophe 1890.

GREGORY XVI (Bartolommeo Alberto Cappellari, 1765-1846, Camaldolese Abbot, from 1831 Pope)

Autograph Letter, not signed, in Italian with transcription and translation, in his neat hand, to ‘Signor Cavaliere’ (‘Dear Knight’), about the endowments of two monasteries sequestrated by the French in Italy during the Napoleonic occupation, saying he has been sent “by the distinguished Advocate Tramm your sentiments concerning the matter of the well known endowments of the Monasteries of Classe [in the city of Ravenna, built by the monks of Sant’ Apollinare di Classe as a refuge from malaria] and S[ant’] Ippolito at Faenza, in reply to mine forwarded to you by various messengers”, and praying him “to reflect, that the fundamental change of circumstances, during the period from 1808 to the present”, when the French occupied Rome, when Pope Pius VII was imprisoned at Grenoble (1809), and later at Savona and Fontainebleau, and the Papal states were annexed to France, “would render this project most damaging and fatal to the said Monasteries, a project which would otherwise be of some advantage to my Congregation”, that of San Michele di Murano within the Order of Camaldoli, “your nobleness of spirit, I am sure... will allow you to consider these very relevant comments in all fairness, and that... you will come to cease from further worry or from any undertaking to liquidate the said endowments”, Cappellari explains that previously the Cavaliere was “taking a position against the Monte Napoleone”, the bank in Milan re-founded in 1804 by Napoleon and charged with managing the public finances, “to avoid a clear loss: from now on you would be against the Monasteries themselves, actively depriving you of what is still left to you, which it is not in my power to do”, and hoping “should you come this way, to be able to pay my respects in person”, adding “we will be able to agree our method of proceeding to each other's convenience and in a friendly manner in cutting through the apparent contradiction, meanwhile being fully aware of the good sense evident in your plan, I have the honour to be and declare myself with perfect esteem”, 1 side folio and conjugate blank, no place, 28th October

KIPLING (Rudyard, 1865-1936, Novelist & Poet)

Typed Letter Signed to Mrs Trotter regretting that he does “not see the least chance of being able to come up to London in time for your meeting, but I do not think it is necessary to assure you of my very keen interest in the object of it. Nobody who has travelled even up and down the line from the colony to Pretoria can fail to see the enormous amount of work that there is to be done, and of course away from the line that work is even more urgent...”, 1 side A4, Bateman’s, Burwash, 6th June

LONGFELLOW (Henry Wadsworth, 1807-1882, American Poet)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent thanking him for his “friendly letter and the ‘Cantata’ that came with it, and beg you to accept my most cordial thanks for this mark of your regard. I have not yet been able to have the music played and sung, as that is no very easy matter, and I will not wait for that to acknowledge the honor you have done me by your composition. If faith be ‘the substance of things unseen’, why not of things unheard? So I listen and seem to hear the song, and thank the composer...”, 3 sides 8vo., Cambridge, 8th November
