GREAT BRITAIN - Postal History
EPHEMERA: Collection of autographs mostly 1830s Free Franks on fronts or pieces affixed in three old albums with many notable personages including "Victoria R", "Robt Peel" (PM), "Charles James Fox", "Rowland Hill" (piece) & "Victor Hugo" x7 (pieces), many from peers with abbreviated signatures including "Palmerston" x3, "Norfolk", "Melbourne", "Granville", "Queensberry" (piece) & "Sandwich" plus a brief letter signed "Wellington", etc. The third album is annotated with details of titles/lineage/political affiliation again with numerous peers including "Somerset", "Wellington", "Abergavenny", "St Vincent", "Cardigan" & "Churchill". The condition is rather mixed with most stuck in place & the albums showing their age. A fascinating lot crying out for re-mounting and research.
