About this Item: Melina Place London; 21 July, 1814. 1p., 4to. On aged and grubby paper. The letter provides an interesting insight into the niceties of Regency theatrical practice. Colman peremptorily addresses it to 'Madam', before expressing his displeasure and defending his imposition of a penalty, as a result of the non-attendance of the recipient (apparently an actress) at a performance at the Haymarket. It begins 'It is always very unpleasant to me when I am obliged to recur to my rule of penalty establish'd in the Theatre; but, in a case like your's [sic] it was unavoidable on the score of precedent; - for, if such neglect of business were unnoticed, any others would absent themselves, on similar occasions. -' In the second part of the letter Colman instructs the recipient, in consequence of her 'explanatory Letter', to 'tell Mr. Winston [James Winston, one of Colman's partners at the Haymarket] that I beg he will send to the Treasury on Saturday, to remit the whole of the forfeit'. It will be sufficient for her to show Winston the letter. Seller Inventory # 11502

About this Item: 6 Mornington Crescent London 'Thursday Morning' and 'Friday Eveng' neither with date but both circa, 1846. Both items in good condition, on aged paper. Lovell begins the first letter (3pp., 12mo) by expressing disappointment at not having heard from Webster yet 'with the M.S.', and offers to 'save [him] any trouble in explanations' by calling on him. If that is not acceptable he asks him to 'let me have the copy with your notes upon it & I will work at once. And if you have any thing more agreeable in the way of criticism to communicate it will put me in better spirits'. In a postscript he asks: 'What do you think of The Bonds of Wedlock or Marriage Bonds - for a title?' In the second letter (2pp., 12mo) he states that it has been suggested to him that 'the Botanical Gardens would be better than Kensington - & would furnish a very beautiful scene.' (In the event one scene was staged in the 'Garden of Sir Walter Amyott's house.') He is sending the suggestion immediately, 'in case you should like it and the scenes should be in hand'. I has a further 'two or three little strengthenings of particular points' in his mind. According to the Oxford DNB, 'The first production of Lovell's most famous play, The Wife's Secret, took place at the Park Theatre, New York, on 12 October 1846, and proved to be a success with American audiences. The work was staged at the Haymarket, London, on 17 January 1848, and ran thirty-six nights with Mr and Mrs Charles Kean in the lead roles. According to Wilbur Dunkel, Charles Kean paid Lovell £300 for the piece and then gave the author an extra £100 when the play was performed in London. The work became popular and there were notable revivals staged in October 1850, at the Princess's Theatre, and in February 1861, at Drury Lane with the Keans again taking the lead roles. Later productions took place at the Surrey in November 1868, the Olympic in March 1877, and at the St James's in April 1888. This final revival was produced by John Hare with Lewis Waller and Mr and Mrs W. H. Kendal taking the leads. Regarding the original London production, The Times said:"the Wife's Secret is a plain story effectively told, with the advantage that the ruling sentiment, though often treated before, is one that is sure to appeal to a large portion of an audience. And it may be laid down as a fixed maxim, that he who can tell a story well upon the stage has accomplished nine-tenths of his work as a practical dramatist." (The Times, 18 Jan 1848) The noted theatre historian Allardyce Nicoll stated that The Wife's Secret was 'certainly one of the best plays I have read in this period'.". Seller Inventory # 17261

About this Item: 1841-1887, London, 1841. Ephemera. Condition: Very Good+. Collection of 45 autograph letters to Charles Manby, from numerous correspondents, spanning 1841-1887, the majority dated in the 1860s and '70s, 2 after Manby's death. Condition varies from VG+ to fine, some just a little worn or fragile -- clean and legible overall. Charles Manby was one of the most prominent British engineers of the mid-19th century, serving as the Secretary to the Institution of Civil Engineers for nearly 50 years. He began his career in his father's Horseley Ironworks, devoted primarily to the design and construction of steam-engines, and machinery -- he assisted his father in building and sailing the world's first seafaring iron steamboat (called the "Aaron Manby"), and he engineered the first pair of marine engines with oscillating cylinders. He worked extensively in France, where he helped establish the gasworks of Paris, constructed a number of marine engines at Charenton Foundry, reorganised the Creusot Ironworks, and constructed the State Tobacco Manufactories. He went from Beaufort Ironworks in South Wales, to Ebbw Vale Iron Company (where he introduced severl ingenious modifications in the rolling of rails), to Bristol Ironworks -- before finally settling in London in 1835 to specialize in the warming and ventilation of buildlings, known as Price and Manby's system. In "The Old World and the New," William Ballantine remarked, "I never knew exactly how it came to pass that Charles Manby, whose reputation depended upon his intimate knowledge of the most important and gravest paths of the scientific world, became associated with the inner circles of the most brilliant theatrical society." There are actually a few connections: He was Samuel Coltís personal choice to oversee the American firearms establishment in London -- in which capacity, in 1854, he gave a personal tour of Coltís gun-making factory to his "great friend" Charles Dickens. It's also possible that this had come about through his friendship with Frederick Henry Yates, the Shakespearean actor who owned the Adelphi Theater in London. When Yates died in 1842, Manby became the guardian of his young son, Edmund Hodson Yates (the future dramatist and novelist), and the executor of Yatesís estate -- which inadvertently made him business manager of the Adelphi at the time the theater was staging dramatic adaptations of many Dickens stories, including "A Christmas Carol." None of these letters seem to mention Dickens by name (though there are numerous references to Manby in Dickens own papers), but many concern Theater business -- from an 1843 letter by "Brown Stout Ale" proprietor Frederick Hodgson about the fate of the Adelphi, to an 1860 business note by actor Paul Bedford. Other names include Thomas Davies (likely the Haymarket actor, turned bookseller, friend of Boswell), Jacob Thompson (the painter, referencing "They Have Seen Better Days" and "Proserpine"), and Alfred Hage ("If I were 20 years younger I would see the thing done for my own account being convinced that I should acquire a splendid and most valuable estate for half its value. As it is I have bought latterly 3 estates in Sweden and on the [Straudver?]"). The letters run the gamut -- news of a funeral, request for cigars, refusal of tickets, committee gossip, confirmation of an ad from the Daily News Office, and more. Considering the scope of Manby's connections, these letters offer a glimpse into any number of social and professional circles. Worthy of further study. Seller Inventory # D7065

About this Item: '7 March | Melina Place Westr Road', 1815. 1p., 4to. 31 lines. Fair, on aged paper. On paper with watermarked date of 1814. Initialled 'G. C.'; with the words 'Copy to Morris' in the top left-hand corner. Docketed on reverse 'Copy to Morris March 1815'. Colman writes that is is now his intention, 'as it ever has been, to use every effort in my power for the interest of the Theatre, by carrying on the business in the best manner that the continual obstacles opposed to my plans will permit'. He states that he is 'in treaty with various Performers for the approaching Summer'. This enables him to communicate 'propositions' to the recipient and 'Mr Winston'. The second paragraph reads: 'In adopting this only measure you have left me, according to the Deed of Ownership, I request you to bear in mind that, should I be as much impeded in my endeavours as in the Year 1813, the same causes will produce the same ruinous effects.' Should the recipient and Winston prevent Colman's 'formation of an entire [last word underlined] company of performers [.] the Theatre must once more in spite of all my struggles - to the contrary remain shut for the Summer'. The fourth paragraph concerns the "instruments" of the stage manager. The Oxford DNB notes that Colman was 'involved in a protracted chancery dispute from 1809 to 1816 with his business partner and brother-in-law David Morris', and that he resided within the King's Bench Rules between 1806 and 1817, at the instigation of 'S. J. Arnold, the son of Dr Samuel Arnold, the well-known composer, from whom Colman had borrowed significant sums'. Seller Inventory # 11795
