Notes

A very scarce signed letter of one page from Mary Shelley, lacking half of the address to the verso, and the letter beginning without a "To", but conjectured to be to Celia "Cissy" Gore, one of the ten children of Catherine Frances Gore, who visited Mary Shelley on 2 September 1834 as recorded in Godwin's journal. The letter sees Mary arranges a play-date for her son Percy Florence, mentioning his love for "his dear Henry" (Celia's son).
This letter is one of 21 autograph letters acquired from the Mary Shelley specialist Professor Jean de Palacio of the University of Lille - this small clutch aside, autograph letters from Mary Shelley very seldom come to market.
