        • Lord Byron Signature with His Wax Seal
          Jan. 23, 2020

          Lord Byron Signature with His Wax Seal

          Est: $400 - $600

          No mere patron of the Romantic Movement was George Gordon Byron (1788-1824)—to be sure, he was a leader. This poet was more wordsmith than even the most “enlightened” of his essayist contemporaries, and, too, his poetic works remain among the most influential of all 19th Century literary pieces. Here offered is an impressive example of Lord Byron’s rare signature. Penned along a 1.5 x 3.5 slip with wax seal, the subject wrote “Byron” with an emphatic flair. Though portions of his graceful penmanship have faded slightly, the signature projects nicely against its off-white medium.

          Byron, George Gordon, Lord

          Est: $3,000 - $4,000

          Byron, George Gordon, Lord. (1788-1824) Legendary British poet who was instrumental in creating the Romantic Movement; he died fighting for Greek independence. Autograph manuscript, being four lines from his first major poem "Oscar of Alva," reading: "And Mora's eyes could Allen move/She bade his wounded pride rebel/Alas! that eyes which beamed with love/Should urge the soul to deeds of hell." Fine, with an interesting history, and two corrections, showing that this was his actual working manuscript. He originally began the second line with "Love," changing it to "She," and the next to last word in that line he changed to "Pride" from an indistinguishable original word. The piece is mounted to a larger sheet on which is written, "The above is Lord Byron's writing and is the 74th verse of the poem entitled 'Oscar of Alva,' published in his 'Hours of Idleness,' written when he was at Southwell and is a part of the Original M.S." This is in the hand of Elizabeth Pigot, a longtime friend whose house Southwell was virtually Byron's adopted home, and with whom he exchanged verses and books. When he left her, they parted on close terms and continued to correspond. He gave her the manuscript of "Oscar of Alva" to transcribe for publication, and she later cut it up to give out. Only 14 of these cut slips of verses from this poem are known to exist, and many of them are in institutions. Manuscripts of Byron are of the greatest rarity. At the bottom of the page, Elizabeth has written out and signed her own poem in praise of Byron, beginning "Byron! I knew thee in thy early day, When yet thy Sun had scarcely shown a ray...."

          George Noel Gordon, Lord BYRON (1788-1824). L.A.S., Newstead Abbey 7 août 1811, [à son ami James Wedderburn Webster]; 4 pages in-4 ; en anglais. Lettre pleine de colère, écrite sous le choc de la mort de sa mère (1er août 1811), alors que Byron revient d'un séjour de deux ans en Grèce (arrivé à Londres le 14 juillet, il partit le 2 août pour Newstead Abbey, ayant reçu la nouvelle du décès). Cette lettre semble inédite. Il a reçu sa lettre indignée et ne comprend pas, puisqu'il s'agissait d'une voiture, l'objection à la présence d'un carrossier [il s'agit de la commande par Byron d'une voiture, puis de l'achat d'une voiture appartenant à Webster pour venir de Londres à Newstead Abbey]. Il n'est pas dans son pouvoir de l'offenser, et face au refus de Byron, qu'il s'appelle son ancien ami suggère qu'il soit son futur ennemi. Pourtant l'ami ne saurait avoir une opinion plus humble de Byron que Byron lui-même, et Byron trouve dans le style de son épître quelque chose de si teuton, que l'on pourrait supposer que son tuteur allemand ne l'eût pas relâché : elle commence par une insulte et se termine par une absurdité... Il le remercie de ses efforts pour sa défense, et cite plaisamment une épigramme de Prior... Pourquoi W. le défend-il et pourquoi l'attaque-t-il ? Tout est si mélangé, c'est à peine si Byron distingue entre les deux. Il n'a ni le caractère ni les qualités pour se rendre un objet incessant de débat, il n'imagine pas qu'en disant à d'autres hommes qu'ils sont des sots, il prouve que lui-même est sage, et il sait que sa vie future a peu à espérer de ses folies passées (on eût pu dire vices), pourtant il compte être jugé seul... Son amitié ou son inimitié valent si peu que Byron ne l'insultera ni en lui proposant l'une, ni en le menaçant de l'autre, mais il souhaite que toutes futures communications soient écrites dans la langue d'un gentleman, parce que, sans se sentir dégradé par l'extravagance de ses expressions, les coutumes du très vilain monde dans lequel ils vivent, les obligent à adopter de sottes mesures en conséquence de protestations excessives... Et de conclure, brutalement, que sa mère repose morte dans la chambre même où a couché l'ami lorsqu'il fit à Byron l'honneur de sa compagnie à l'abbaye. Qu'il songe donc à ses sentiments, et qu'il s'arrête ! « I have received your indignant letter. - As our subject was a carriage why object to the presence of a coachmaker ? - Knowing you so well as I have done, my good friend, it is out of your power to offend me ; I sincerely wish you well, in the capacity of my present or (as you style yourself) my "former friend". - You make me of too much importance by this hint that you may be my future enemy. - You can hardly think more humbly of me, than I think of myself, & my answering such an epistle as your last is a proof of that opinion. - Indeed, from the tenor & style I should hardly suspect it to be your own composition, there is something so Teutonic in the whole, that one might suppose your German tutor had not released his pupil. - It begins with an insult, & ends with an absurdity. - I send you my sincere thanks for your exertions (during my travels) in my defence, & in return recommend the perusal of Prior's epigram. To John I owe great obligation But John unhappily thought fit To publish it to all the nations, So John & I are more than quit ! Why defend me, my dear W. ? Believe me, I am not worth a defence ; - why attack me ? When I have not provoked the assault ? - Your attacks and defenses are so jumbled together that I am hardly able to distinguish which is which. - I have no "character no merits" in my own estimation or that of others, to render me so conspicuous an object of discussion, nor do I at all conceive that by telling other men they are fools, I have proved myself to be wise. - My "future life" I know (without your lucid intimation) has little to hope from my former follies (you might have said vices) yet I trust I shall "stand or fall alone" as I should be sorry to involve others in the latter predicament. - My friendship or enmity are worth so little that I shall not insult you by offering the one, or threatening the other. - If you have any thing more to say on carriages, address it to the coachmaker, if to me, you know my address. - But let your letter be in the langage of a gentleman, because, though I shall never feel myself degraded by the rashness of your expressions, the customs of the very bad world we live in, compel us to adopt foolish measures in consequence of intemperate expostulation. - You are not aware that my mother lies dead in the very chamber where you slept when I had the honour of your company at the abbey. - Think of my feelings, & Pause ! »...

          BYRON, George Noel Gordon, Lord (1788-1824). The works of Lord Byron. Londres : J. Murray, 1826. In-8 (234 x 143 mm). Petite mouillure à l'angle de quelques feuillets, accidents au dernier feuillet. Reliure de l'époque, demi-veau brun,dos lisse orné de motifs dorés, tranches mouchetées. (Restaurée). Provenance : Stendhal (annotations autographes) - Balfin - Gabriac (note manuscrite). PREMIÈRE ÉDITION COLLECTIVE DES OEUVRES DE BYRON. TRÈS PRÉCIEUX EXEMPLAIRE ANNOTÉ PAR STENDHAL. Stendhal fit la connaissance de lord Byron, pour lequel il nourrissait une grande admiration, en octobre 1816, dans la loge que louait son ami Ludovic de Brême à la Scala de Milan. Il fit spécialement relier ce volume des oeuvres complètes du poète anglais en y incorporant à la fin quelques illustrations et des morceaux variés de Virgile, Dante, l'Arioste, le Tasse et Métastase, qui devaient accompagner dans son esprit l'oeuvre du poète anglais. Stendhal a enrichi l'exemplaire d'une vingtaine de notes autographes marginales au crayon, dans lesquelles il commente le texte : "à méditer", "sublime", "by Mr Hobhouse (ami de Byron)" ou encore, à côté d'une note sur le Pèlerinage de Childe Harold : "vu 18 décembre 1827", "Rome". Il a aussi numéroté les strophes d'un des poèmes et, surtout, pris des notes à l'encre sur les gardes. On peut par exemple lire ces convictions de Stendhal sur son art : "1υeυrυe règle : des idées vraies ou intéressantes exprimées clairement. 2υeυmυe règle : quand on fait un ouvrage de l'imaginaire traduit en d'autres tems, la forme ne doit avoir que les [récentes ?] pensées, quoique le vulgaire incapable de discerner le fond, ne voye que la forme". On trouve de sa main des dates et événements très importants à la fin du livre : "20 mai 1830 je corrige la fin [partiellement effacé] of le rouge et le noir ", "17 juin 1821 Matilde ", allusion à sa rupture avec une des grandes passions de sa vie : Matilde Viscontini Dembowski, et encore cette profession de foi en commentaire d'une citation de Byron, à propos des lecteurs : "je crois qu'il suffit dans un roman de les transporter dans un monde un peu moins plat et laid que l'ordinaire" et cette note "21 février 35, 5 jours de confettis et de carnaval à Rome" qui porte la date la plus ancienne. Cet exemplaire a visiblement été son vade mecum pendant son séjour en Italie en tant que consul, de 1830 à 1835. On y trouve d'ailleurs parmi les notes ajoutées à la fin de l'ouvrage, la date "18 mars 1832 Ancône" qui marque le début de sa mission de sous-intendant du corps expéditionnaire français. Une note manuscrite de Paul Gabriac, datée de Paris 1865 précise "Ce livre a appartenu à Henri Beyle, (de Stendhal) qui le légua à son ami Balfin, négociant à Rome, qui le donna à Jeanne-Marie Gabriac, de qui je le tien ". Balfin et Gabriac sont deux négociants cités dans une des lettres de Stendhal au comte Sebastiani, ministre des Affaires étrangères : "J'ai soumis ces deux états aux lumières des négociants les plus instruits (MM. Balfin, La Rosière, Laisné, Dubois, Gabriac)". Précieux ouvrage composé par Stendhal à partir des oeuvres de Byron et contenant des notes personnelles très révélatrices tant sur l'oeuvre du poète anglais que sur la vie privée de Stendhal lui-même.

          TWO PORTRAITS: i) BY AN UNKNOWN ARTIST, pencil drawing, head and shoulders, profile facing right, head slightly raised, captioned below on original leaf onto which the drawing is tipped 'An original sketch of Lord Byron' in an early nineteenth-century 'print' (possibly female) hand and with a note on the verso in another nineteenth-century hand 'Original, unpublished sketch of Lord Byron from life (artist unknown)', framed and glazed, size of image 3¾ x 3¼ inches (9.5 x 8 cm), overall size 10¼ x 9 ¼ inches (25.5 x 23.5 cm) [early nineteenth century] Dr Annette Peach published this drawing in her thesis on portraits of Byron and subsequently in the Walpole Society, 2000. She noted: 'In the attention given to the profile line, the sketch resembles that made by Lady Byron in 1815 which also shows the sitter facing to the right, a pose Byron did not adopt with professional artists...in the absence of any known provenance the identification of the sitter remains conjectural.' It is interesting in view of the fact that Byron was known to have a slight malformation of the ear-lobe that Dr Peach notes of this portrait 'ear-lobe indistinct'. ii) BY CRAWFORD, bronzed base metal round medallion, head and shoulders, profile facing left, signed 'Crawford' on the truncation, inscribed on the verso of the frame 'Medallion portrait of the poet... "The Byron is the finest likeness of the Noble Poet we have ever seen" – Edinburgh Evening Post', framed and glazed in a contemporary square miniature frame with ring for suspension, size of image 4¼ inches (11 cm), overall size 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm), [nineteenth century] The following entry under Crawford appears in L.

Byron had moved to Pisa at the end of October 1821 to join the Shelleys and Teresa Guiccioli: the circle they formed in Pisa, which included, besides Hay, Edward and Jane Williams and Leigh Hunt and his family, was to be broken by the twin tragedies of 1822, first the death of Byron's five year-old daughter Allegra on 20 April and then the drowning of Shelley, Williams and Charles Vivian on 8 July.

Endorsement signed (with initial 'M'), n.p., n.d., on a wrapper enclosing a dossier in French relating to the death of Lord Byron, together 13 leaves, folio; together with an autograph endorsement signed, Vienna, 11 April 1853, on a wrapper lacking contents; the two wrappers numbered 'zu Num. 1261' and 'zu 1262'. The first endorsement reads 'Report of the K.K. Consul Micarelli at Zante on 24 November 1824 relating to the demise of Lord Byron and the talismans carried by him'. The report, in French, gives first a translation of the scroll ('rouleau') which Lord Byron was carrying on his body: 'Le rouleau commence au milieu d'une conversation de Salomon avec Satan. L'écriture est très mauvaise et très incorrecte'; the text ends 'Le Maître et possesseur de ce Talisman est Ybrahim fils de Mustufa'; there follows a description of the seal with which Lord Byron's 'lettre' (presumably the preceding text) is sealed, which bears the name Edward Caitsford or Catchford and the date 1778. The endorsement in Metternich's autograph relates to annexed documents (not present) concerning an ornamental chest found in Cannes, where, he notes, Napoleon landed in 1815 on his return from Elba.
