Draft of Albrecht Durer's dedication to Bilibald Pirckheimer, c1523. Artist: Albrecht Durer

Draft of Albrecht Durer's dedication to Bilibald Pirckheimer, c1523. Draft of the dedication to Pirckheimer, probably written in 1523, of his Four Books of Human Proportions, published, after his death, at Nurnberg in 1528. This draft differs from the dedication as ultimately printed, and a deleting line has been drawn through it with a pen from top to bottom. It ends abruptly, and only the first of the two existing pages is here reproduced. The detached signature is from a letter from Durer to Pirkheimer, relative to a painting of the Virgin, written from Venice and dated 23rd September 1506. From the fourth Series of Facsimiles of royal, historical, literary and other autographs in the Department of Manuscripts, British Museum: Series I-V. (London, 1899)

Letter from Thomas Chatterton to William Barrett, 1769.Artist: Thomas Chatterton

Letter from Thomas Chatterton to William Barrett, 1769. Letter from the poet Thomas Chatterton to William Barrett, surgeon of Bristol, who had remonstrated with him for a letter he had written to Michael Clayfield avowing an intention of suicide. The circumstances under which the letter was written are explained by the following endorsement: Mr Lambert, Chatterton's Master, found a letter on Chatterton's desk to Mr Clayfield telling his wants and distress and that on Clayfield's recieving that, he (Chatterton) should be no more. This letter Mr Lambert sent to Mr Barrett; on which he sent for Chatterton, questioned him on the occasion in a very friendly manner, shewed the horrible crime of suicide and the cursed principle he had adopted, and Chatterton afterwards sent Mr Barrett this letter. From the fourth series of Facsimiles of royal, historical, literary and other autographs in the Department of Manuscripts, British Museum: Series I - V, (London, 1899)

Letter from Sir Francis Drake to William Cecil, Lord High treasurer, 26th July 1586.Artist: Sir Francis Drake

Letter from Sir Francis Drake to William Cecil, Lord High treasurer, 26th July 1586. Letter informing Cecil that the whole Spanish treasure from the Indies for the last year only, escaped Drake by twelve hours, but that there is a very great gap opened, very little to the liking of the King of Spain, referring him to the bearers for all that has passed, and asking for £6000 in order to pay off the poorer sort of his men, in return for which bullion shall be sent (Plymouth) on board the Elizabeth Bonaventure. The letter was written on Drake's return from an expedition to the West Indies. He set out, in command of twenty-five vessels, on 14th September 1585, captured and put to ransom the Spanish towns of San Domingo and Cartagena, and reached Portsmouth on his return on 28th July 1586, bringing back with him the colonists of Virginia. From the fourth series of Facsimiles of royal, historical, literary and other autographs in the Department of Manuscripts, British Museum: Series I - V, (London, 1899)
