A mere seven months after the Seven Years War has ended the Comte D'Elva [whose family can be traced back over 800 years] writes in beautiful script a detailed health report on the army of France. Folio sized and written on 3 of the 4 pages, in fine condition, signed "D'Elva", dated January 10th, 1764. Superb French militaria. Biographical Notes: SIR THOMAS PHILLIPPS (1792-1872). Born in 1792, Sir Thomas Phillipps from childhood was obsessed with the idea of obtaining virtually anything written or printed on paper, including cartloads of documents from wastepaper merchants and the entire inventories of booksellers. "I wish to have one copy of every book in the world," he declared to a friend. He very nearly succeeded. His collection ultimately grew to more than 100,000 books and at least 60,000 manuscripts. As a result of his extravagant purchases, Sir Thomas was permanently on the verge of bankruptcy and was constantly pursued by creditors. So many books arrived at his house that it was impossible to unpack his acquisitions much less keep pace with them. Visiting scholars, driven to distraction, would spend days hunting for an elusive text in the dusty heaps that filled every room. Because Sir Thomas has a morbid dread of fire, most of his collection was housed in coffinlike boxes that could be carted away quickly. Visitors to Middle Hill were struck too, by the presence of numerous logs, a ploy he used to lure beetles away from his books. As Sir Thomas relentlessly pursued his passion, the house itself began to crumble and its floors started to sag under the cast weight of hundreds of tons of paper. His neglect of Middle Hill was partly deliberate, however. Sir Thomas's chief enemy in life, James Halliwell, had married his daughter against his wishes. It appears that Halliwell was, in Sir Thomas' eyes, the worst kind of criminal, a book thief who had stolen valuable works from university libraries and even from his father-in-law. Having no sons, Sir Thomas was unable to prevent Halliwell from inheriting his estate. To ensure that his detested heir would never receive anything of value, Sir Thomas's solution was to allow Middle Hill to fall unto complete disrepair. He even went so far as to chop down and sell for lumber the centuries-old oak trees that lined the majestic mile-long drive to his home. In 1863 Sir Thomas decided to move - in order to accommodate his books. With the aid of 160 men, 103 wagonloads of books and papers drawn by 230 horses, the books were lumbered from Middle Hill top their new estate in nearby Cheltenham. It is said that for years afterwards the countryside was littered with the remains of carts that had collapsed under the sheer weight of the Phillipps collection. Sir Thomas continues to add to his library until his death in 1872. After Sir Thomas's death, his immediate family had no room for his collection. So vast was the library that although individual items and large sections were sold privately or through numerous auction sales, the Phillipps collection is still being sold more than a century after the death of its owner. In the course of its sales, many treasures have come to light. As late as 1964, part of the long-lost and unique medieval manuscript of the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses appeared and was subsequently reunited with its other half at Magdalen College, Oxford. Once destined for destruction as worthless wastepaper, this and many other priceless works were saved by the single-minded obsession of the greatest bibliomaniac of all time. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Autograph. Seller Inventory # 0TP116

About this Item: 15 November, 1918. 5pp., 4to. In good condition, on lightly-aged paper, with the last leaf tipped-in onto a piece of board. An interesting document, filled with valuable detail. The RAMC is not mentioned, but from the context Stephens would appear to have been a member. Writing from an unidentified location, he begins by explaining that his division 'came out of the line a few days ago, and has been making its way slowly back for a rest. [.] we are staying on here for a bit, and are busy transporting civilians to their homes from villages all over the countryside. Since yesterday morning hundreds and hundreds of liberated French, English, Russian and Italian prisoners have been passing thro' this place, and we have been doing all we can to provide them with hot drinks and as much food as we can spare. They are all absolutely fagged out, as they have been marching for days, and have scarcely had anything to eat. They have to walk as far as here because the French have not yet withdrawn over the ground that has been evacuated by the Germans since the signing of the armistice. | They stay in this town for one night, and then go in lorries next morning. Many of them have bad feet and unattended wounds, and to-day I should think we have cleaned and dressed wounds for over 100 men. It is just after tea time now, and so far to-day we have given out 1500 cups of cocoa, and there is still a huge crowd waiting outside.' He describes the distribution of rations and supplies, adding: 'The tales that some of them tell of the way in which they have been treated are undescribable. [.] The Bosche seems to have a very special hatred against the British prisoners, as they seem to have been treated far worse than any of the others.' He tells the story of the mistreatment of 'a poor boy here to-day who is only just 17 and was captured about 6 months ago, when the Germans made their big push.' He discusses 'the poor civilians who have been shifted from village to village by the Germans, who have taken their horses, cattle, pigs, goods, furniture, in fact practically everything they possessed. In every village our cars enter, the people swarm round and ask to be taken to their homes. [.] All the men of military age and girls between 16 and 25 have been taken far back, leaving only the old men and women and little children. These come out with their little bundles - all they have left, pack themselves into the cars and are taken to their native villages, often to find their homes destroyed by shell and fire.' He sketches an account of 'what we have been doing since we went into action again at the beginning of this month' After 'the Infantry once got Fritz on the run things moved very rapidly, and there were few wounded to be carried. We moved our quarters sometimes two or three times in the same day, and followed up the Infantry as soon as ever temporary bridges over rivers and canals were completed. The weather was as bad as it could be, thin drizzling rain day after day, oceans of mud everywhere, roads full of shell holes, and often completely blocked by huge mine craters, but our big cars stood up to the work splendidly, and often came to the rescue of smaller ambulances which almost disappeared from sight in the mud!' He is elated by the cessation of hostilities: 'We are now in comfortable billets, and are well fed, we are all fit and well, and we are doing the work which we came out to do in the first place. | The war is over! It was difficult to realize it at first until the afternoon of the day the armistice was signed, when we went to the gate of Sedan to find the Germans still occupying the town. There were mounted German guards, a thin strip of barbed wire and then French mounted Guards. It was a sight I shall never forget as long as I live. Now the Germans have left the Town and we went in this morning - the first English to enter. I cannot describe to you the welcome we got, hand-shakes, embraces, cheers, really it was most embarrassing! When we finally s. Seller Inventory # 15454

About this Item: 8vo. 61 pages, approximately 7500 words. Accompanied by other period correspondence to Louisa Russell: (1) Russell, James L. Two letters from camp in Virginia to his sister Louisa Russell, accompanied by one from his wife in Maine, and another from a friend Dan, 26 September - 27 December, 1864 (8vo, 13 pages, approximately 1500 words); (2) Russell, Carrie. Four letters from Indiana to her cousin Louisa Russell, 4 October 1861- 30 March 1865, with news of loved ones at war and mention of the Copperhead movement (8vo, 12 pages, approximately 1250 words); (3) Russell, Lydia. Two letters from Indiana to her cousin Louisa Russell, 23 September 1864 and 29 January 1865, commenting on the draft and soldiers returning home to vote (8vo, six pages, approximately 500 words); (4) McKinney, Sarah A. (Chester's sister). 17 letters from Litchfield, New York, to her cousin Louisa Russell, 1 October 1862 - 17 July 1865, with many mentions of Chester and others involved in the war (8vo, 59 pages, approximately 7000 words). In total, an archive of 44 letters from various members of a family native to New York, several active on fields of battle in the south, their correspondence punctuated with concern over the various issues arising from the conflict and revealing family perseverance through the dislocation and stress. Letters folded for mailing, many accompanied by original envelopes. Very good throughout, all quite legible. Like most of the correspondence in this archive, the letters from Chester McKinney inform Louisa Russell of family activities in peace and war, including farming and other domestic pursuits and concerns, travel, budding careers, child rearing, etc., and military concerns, including camp and battlefield reports. In his first letter, McKinney, a young school teacher, notes the effects of the local draft, especially on married men; the following six letters, through the summer of 1864, offer commentary on the war and its politics and notes on relatives and friends in the fighting. After informing his cousin that he will enter the navy, McKinney writes her a long letter describing his first months in the army: joining his regiment in front of Petersburg, he lands in the hospital and comments on the recent election, "The Copperheads do not have so much to say now as they did before the election. I hardly think that Jeff can hold on much longer, but will have to make peace without separation & with humiliation to himself & his cabinet, &c. I am much encouraged by the reelection of Honest Abe." _McKinney's final three wartime letters were written from camp at Hancock Station, Virginia, monthly reviews, January through March, 1865, "we may all soon return to our homes & be a peaceful and prosperous nation once more, after this punishment & chasetisement we have received . if my life is spared I will know how to enjoy & appreciate home life & enjoyments better than ever before . we have been ordered to have our guns where we could get them & fall in line at a minutes notice, for two nights now, as they expected the rebs might attack us in the night & try to take us by surprise . if the Sesesh Atmosphere was cleared out of the Country, don't know but that i might think of living in Dixie . we have a Chaplain as good a one as there is in the army. He does all he can for the good of the regt. He has got us a library of nearly three hundred volumes . Sheridan, Sherman & Grant are the Generals for me, they seem to know always what next to do. There is a large move now planned in Gen Grant's mind [21 March], I think but where he will commence is for time to show." Five post-war letters, four from June, July, and September, 1865, with some war content, and one written from college the next year close out the correspondence. Seller Inventory # 53758
