Crewe Manuscripts

  • Crewe MS
  • Coleção
  • 16th-20th c.

The collection includes manuscripts in various European languages, dating from the sixteenth century to the twentieth. Most of them are, broadly speaking, of a literary, historical, or religious nature, but it is not easy to summarise the range of subjects they cover. They include, for instance, from the seventeenth century, notarial instruments in French relating to Charlotte de Beaune, an English translation of Den Spegel der Gherechticheit by Hendrik Niclaes of the so-called ‘Family of Love’, and a collection of English court poetry; from the eighteenth, papers on British trade, literary copyright, notorious criminals, and the French revolution; and from the nineteenth, a collection of papers and prints relating to the history of ballooning, items collected by Richard Burton on his travels, and a series of volumes recording the transactions of the Philobiblon Society.

Milnes, Richard Monckton (1809-1885), 1st Baron Houghton, author and politician

Verses, by an Augustinian friar

Introduced by the following words: ‘De la critiqe amère: je citerè cette Strofe, adressée par [un] Augustin à un ministre réformé. page 389.’ First line: ‘Va, coquin, insolent, sans ame’.

Cited from De Paris, des mœurs, de la littérature, et de la philosophie, by J. B. S. Salgues (1813), pp. 388–9. The introductory words were rephrased.

‘Statuts de l’Ordre de l’Annonciation.’ By Joseph Grosset?

  • Crewe MS/41/**C**, pp. 1–3, 3a, 3b, 4–14
  • Parte
  • [c. 1830]
  • Parte de Crewe Manuscripts

Probably incomplete. The title is subscribed ‘J. G.’ and the name Joseph Grosset appears on p. 4. The text refers to the Order of the Rosy Cross, the mystical word ΑΒΡΑΣΑΧ (Abrasach), the ideas of Isaac Hollandus, and other terms of esoteric philosophy. There is no writing on pp. 3a and 3b, which were probably missed out by mistake.

Accounts of events in Florence and elsewhere

On the spine is written ‘Narazioni Casi diversi’. The MS comprises a number of narratives by different writers (pp. 1–530), followed by verses by Giambattista Felice Zappi and others (pp. 532–57). The authors of the verses are not indicated in the MS.

Dati, Antonio de’ (fl. c. 1700)

Print of Thomas Horner and his accomplices in the house of Daniel Clewen

No caption. Removed from a copy of the fifth volume of Jackson’s New and Complete Newgate Calendar (1795), where this illustration faces p. 278 and is captioned ‘John Hartley, James Deane, and their accomplices in the House of Mr Clewin, at Finchley, where they committed a Burglary’. The names of the criminals in the caption are wrong, this burglary having been confused with one committed by James Bean (sic), John Hartley, and Lambert Smith, an account of which appears on pp. 305–7 of the same volume.

The Penny London Post

This number contains an instalment of an article entitled ‘The Life of that Notorious Robber, Highwayman, and Murderer, Richard Turpin’, etc.
