ALFRED COMYN LYALL
Signature from the British poet and civil servant dated 1898
Signature: "January 1898/Alfred C Lyall", in black ink, 3½x1¾ affixed to 3½x9½ sheet. Alfred Comyn Lyall (1835-1911) was a British civil servant, literary historian and poet. He began his work in government with the Indian Civil Service in 1856, and would go on to serve a long career in India, working his way to Home Secretary to the Government of India in 1873 and Foreign Secretary to the Government of India in 1878, as well as founding and serving as Chancellor of the University of Allabad. For his service he was made an honorary fellow of King's College in Cambridge, a member of the Privy Council in 1902, Knight Commander of the Order of the Indian Empire in 1887, KC of the Order of Bath in 1881, and KGC of the Order of the Indian Empire in 1895. Lyall is almost remembered for his poetry in books such as Verses Written in India (1889), as well as history books such as The Rise and Expansion of the British Dominion in India (1893), Tennyson (1902), and Studies in Literature and History (1915). Irregular edges. Fine condition.
