Mary Shelley letters discovered in Essex archive

Mary Shelley letters discovered in Essex archive | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Professor finds cache of previously unpublished letters by author of Frankenstein, written between 1831 and 1849


...The letters date between 1831, nine years after the death of her poet husband Percy Bysshe Shelley, and 1849, when Mary Shelley was already unwell with the brain tumour that would kill her two years later, and show a woman who was skilled in charming favours from friends, bursting with pride in and concern for her teenage son – and not unconcerned with frivolities. A last-minute ticket to the coronation of William IV in 1831 necessitated a 3am visit from her hairdresser; she attended the event sporting a plumed headdress ("The whole thing was wondrously splendid – Diamonds & cloth of gold grew common to the eye.")


The later letters, written in an increasingly scrawled hand, are short and distracted, full of apologies for her failing memory and powers. To a number of them is still attached a blob of scarlet wax stamped with the author's own seal – one that was not previously known, according to Crook.

Hot On The Historical Ephemera Trail... In The National Enquirer?

Hot On The Historical Ephemera Trail... In The National Enquirer? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The women born between 1905 and 1909 were the same young girls who grew up during the years of the women’s suffrage movement in the US. They would have seen the struggle, heard the talk, and knew they could have greater freedom of choice in living their lives. They too would see, if not quite be, part of the flapper movement. Activism and parenting being almost completely at odds with one another, some may have opted not to have children — and at this time, birth control, thanks to Margaret Sanger, was becoming a realistic option.

 

And, just as these young women were perhaps thinking of starting a family…

 

Along comes The Great Depression — the one of that started about 1929, not the one some say we are approaching now — and the birthrate fell about one-tenth globally from the rate during the “prosperous” 1920′s. In America, the birth rate dropped below the replacement level for the first time in history.

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I have never seen anything like this, didn't even know they existed. This is such a piece of history. I can just picture a fair lady sitting by the fire and fanning herself. What a treasure!

 

Face Screens were used by Victorian Ladies to shield their faces from a hot fire. As most Victorian utilitarian items, face screens were beautifully decorated. Each of these face screens is made from cardboard. The shape of the screen is cut in an intricate design. The center portion of the screens, each have a Chromolithograph image of Colonial groupings. The round image has braid to frame the image. The handles are a work of art in themselves with the delicate turnings. Tiny wing nuts secure the screens to the handles, Both screens are in similar condition. The cardboard frames are worn on the edges. There is some water damage to the frames as well as the center mat. One screen has a piece of the braid missing. The image boards are secured to the frames with tape. This is could be replaced. The wood handles are in excellent condition. The price is for the pair of screens. Each screen measures 16" x 7".
