ALBUM - A substantial folio album (450 x 300mm) containing c. 600 autograph letters, envelopes, clipped signatures, clippings, mostly 18th- and 19th-centuries, including letters by Harriet Martineau (3-pages, undated, to an unknown recipient, concluding, "... Pray ask me as many questions as you please, either in person, or through the post. My mother and I shall always be happy to assist you in any way, Yours very truly, H. Martineau"), Humphry Davy (one-page, undated, sense largely irrecoverable, but including, "... I think been instrumental to what may be called a National triumph ...") and many other items including autograph letters by Lord Brougham, Lord Palmerston and Julia Pardoe, and others; clipped signatures of Robert Browning, Lord Byron, Gladstone, Robert Peel, Samuel Rogers, and others. Provenance: The album was compiled by Joseph Mazzinghi (1765-1844), an English composer of Corsican origin. He was the eldest son of Tommaso Mazzinghi, a London wine merchant and violinist who led the orchestra at Marylebone Gardens, published Six Solos for the Violin in 1763 and died in November 1771. John Mazzinghi, probably an uncle, made a number of English translations of librettos for the King's Theatre in the Haymarket, including several by Da Ponte. Felice Mazzinghi (possibly another uncle) published a keyboard sonata in 1765, and five other manuscript sonatas by him are in the British Library. Joseph
