SIR HUMPHREY DAVY SENDS THE ADDRESS OF SIR THOMAS BERNARD,  NOTED PHILANTHROPIST, TO SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE, THE BRITISH POET AND PHILOSOPHER

DAVY, SIR HUMPHREY (1778-1829) British chemist and inventor. Autograph Note Signed, “H. Davy.” One page, octavo. No place. “June 10th 1807”  Irregular top edge, and archival paper tape repair on verso, but still very fine condition.   Davy writes:        

 “Mr. Bernard’s address is “Rockhampton” or rather Wimpole St. t. Bernard Esq. I do not know where you are I shall therefore send a copy of this letter to Keswic [?] I am thy dear Coleridge very affectionately yours, H. Davy.”

 

An attractive, boldly written example, wonderfully linking these great names!  Perfect for framing or display.
