THOMAS MOORE
The Irish poet pens his signature and sentiment on this cut page
Autograph Sentiment Signed: "very truly yours/Thomas Moore", 7¼x1, irregularly cut from letter. Dated by Moore: "July 14 1827". Moore has also written the name of the recipient (illegible) above date. Irish poet, satirist, composer and musician Thomas Moore (1779-1852) is famed for his 10-volume Irish Melodies (1807-1834), 130 poems set to music. The work, which was credited with introducing Irish songs to a wide audience, included such now-familiar songs as "The Last Rose of Summer" and "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms". He was also paid the then enormous sum of £3,000 for his narrative poem, "Lallah Rookh" (1919). An Irish nationalist, Moore was close to Robert Emmet, who was executed for his part in the uprisings of 1798 and 1803, and wrote an eloquent eulogy for his friend. After 1822, Moore became a biographer and historian; among those prose works was a biography (1830) of his friend, Lord Byron. Light horizontal fold underlines very truly yours. Lightly soiled, touching signature and writing. Otherwise, fine condition.
