Westminster, 16 November 1652. 4 x 7 inches, neatly inlaid. From the Enys Collection of Manuscripts. A document from the early years of the Protectorate, bearing the signatures of four regicides. John Lisle, appointed Lord Lisle under the protectorate (1609/10–1664), regicide, took a leading role in the King’s trial, sitting next to the president to advise him on legal matters. Cornelius Holland (1600–1671?), politician, was labelled a regicide for having been present on the day of sentencing, although he did not sign the death warrant. Holland was extremely active on the first two councils of state (1649–50), as well as on the fourth (1651–2), and displayed enthusiasm for selling land and property of both crown and church. Nicholas Love (1608-1682), politician, was present at the sentencing of the king, though he did not sign the royal death warrant. He served energetically the kingless Commonwealth set up in the wake of the regicide and the abolition of the monarchy. Thomas Grey (1 ... Read more

Undated. 40 lines on 1 page 13 x 8 inches, with corrections, light creasing. Richard Cobden (1804-65), statesman. When Cobden visited Egypt in 1836, on behalf of a Lancashire calico factory, he wrote letters to his sisters and friends, extracts of which are printed in John Morley‘s Life of Richard Cobden. “I was startled too on observing that whilst the mouth, which was partially concealed beneath his white beard & moustache, put on the semblance of laughter, the eyes were all the while peering coldly from beneath their heavy brows with an expression quite opposite to that of unguarded mirth. The great size of his head accords, phrenologically, with the extraordinary force of character possessed by this successful soldier; whilst a broad & massive forehead harmonises with that subtlety & depth of intellect which he had evinced in his intrigues & schemes of personal aggrandisement. Upon the whole however - let me hasten to confess it - there is nothing remarkable in the appearance of ... Read more
