80 - 150 308 AN IRISH EARLY 19TH CENTURY CAVALRY OFFICER’S SWORD BY JOHN READ OF DUBLIN, RETRIEVED FROM THE FIELD OF WATERLOO AFTER THE BATTLE, with 29 inch (74 cm) curved single edged blade, regulation ormolu stirrup hilt, silver wire-bound leather covered grip, in its original ormolu mounted scabbard (gilding to hilt and scabbard mounts worn), the upper scabbard mount engraved “J. Read, Maker, College Green, Dublin”, and the central scabbard mount additionally later engraved “From the Field after a Charge by the Union Brigade near Ohain Road 1815”. Some service wear, the hilt quillon chipped and numerous contact marks to the cutting edge of the blade. At Waterloo, Wellington took up a defensive position along a long ridge running east-west, perpendicular to and bisected by the main Paris to Brussels road, along the line of which Napoleon was advancing. The Ohain Road ran along the crest of the ridge, directly in front of the bulk of Wellington’s cavalry and infantry. The Union Brigade of cavalry at Waterloo, so named because it comprised one English, one Irish and one Scottish regiment, made their celebrated charge across the Ohain Road at the height of the battle, to drive back Napoleon’s cavalry, who were attacking Wellington’s infantry squares along the Ohain Road. The Irish regiment of that brigade, the Inniskilling Dragoons, lost one officer killed in action at Waterloo, Lieutenant Michael Clusky, shot from his horse by a French infantryman during the charge across the Ohain Road, just after the Inniskillings had engaged the French cavalry in hand to hand combat. Note: 2015 is the Bi-Centenary of the Battle of Waterloo 1800 - 2200 309 A FLINT LOCK PISTOL, by Richards London, the octagonal barrel 6.25in (16cm), inscribed London on the rib, front and rear barrel sight, the steel lock signed Richards, (hammer broken) on three quarter walnut stock with iron furniture checkered grip, missing ramrod, 12in (30cm).

310 THREE UNUSUAL 19TH CENTURY EMBOSSSED AND BRASS MOUNTED COPPER POWDER FLASKS, all approx 8in (20cm). (3) 70 - 120 311 AN IRISH GEORGIAN MIDSHIPMAN’S DIRK BY THOMAS READ & CO. OF DUBLIN, plain 5¼ inch (13.5 cm) double edged blade of diamond section, ornate one-piece carved Irish bog-oak grip with broad cushion shaped pommel, plain brass scabbard engraved with maker’s details “Read & Co., MAKERS, 4 Parliament St.”, 10.5 inches (27cm) long overall, circa 1810. Thomas Read established himself independently at 4 Parliament Street in 1782, but only began trading as Read & Co. from 1808 onwards. Not to be confused with John Read, also a sword cutler during the same period, who had premises at 8 College Green. It is unlikely that this midshipman’s dirk was worn by an Irish midshipman of either the Royal Navy or United States Navy, both of which, by the beginning of the 19th century, has established traditions regarding the pattern of naval dirks to be worn by their midshipmen, and to which pattern this naval dirk, with its unusual bog-oak grip, does not conform. It is therefore more likely that it was worn by an Irish midshipman serving with one of the other navies of the day, perhaps the Argentinian Navy of the Irish born Admiral William Brown (1777-1857), or the Napoleonic Navy, for example.

Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Ephemera 422 TAAFFE FAMILY ARCHIVE A substantial collection of letters and documents relating to the Taaffe family of Smarmore Castle, Ardee, Co. Louth, mainly 19th century, including letters written by George Taaffe from Sebastopol during the Crimean War, where he was serving with the British invasion force. The Taaffe family traces its history in Co. Louth to the 13th century, with branches in Sligo and elsewhere. The family had strong Continental and military connections; some branches remained Catholic, and a succession of Counts and Viscounts Taaffe held high rank in the Austro-Hungarian court and army in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the early 1820s John Taaffe, one of the Smarmore family, spent some time in Italy with the circle of Byron and Shelley. The principal contents of the archive include: Family letters and documents, a large collection in two red ring-binders, mostly with postal markings, more than 50 letters mostly to/ from various members of the Taaffe family, including several letters from George Taaffe in camp before Sebastopol 1855, with interesting details of the fighting. ‘Both [the] French and Scandinavians say that no force in the world could have held the Redan [fortress] exposed to the tremendous fire that the Russians could bring to bear on it from I don’t know how many batteries ..’ [Novbr. 16th 1855]. George survived the fighting, but in 1861 a telegraphic form announces his death at sea. Earlier there is an interesting letter to George from Richard Sheil, 1828, seeking his political support, mentioning the Catholic question; a letter from Adriana Marchioness Gabuccini to her (second) husband John Taaffe 1836; various accounts, letters about military, local or legal matters, some architectural plans, miscellaneous receipts etc. [We have not investigated these letters in detail]. A series of seven manuscript letters to George Taaffe in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, 1841-2, evidently from his estate manager, one with a note from his brother, each letter written on the reverse of detailed weekly Workmen’s Accounts for the Smarmore Castle estate (manuscript entries on large printed forms), describing the daily work and costs on the estate in elaborate detail, the letters with postal markings; A printed Passport dated 1825 issued to George Taaffe, signed by Jean Fane Lord Burghersh, H.M. Envoy to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, elaborately countersigned and stamped on front and rear by a wide variety of local jurisdictions (this is of course long before the unification of Italy); another Passport issued 1841 by the Belgian Ambassador in London to Randal Taaffe; also another dated 1862 issued to John Taaffe, signed by John Earl Russell, Viscount Amberley (father of the philosopher Bertrand Russell), H.M. Secretary for Foreign Affairs; A manuscript document mostly in Oriental script (possibly Turkish or Armenian), with red wax seal, dated 1841 (paper watermarked 1839), possibly a list or inventory; Deeds, wills, marriage settlements, legal claims and opinions etc. (mostly 19th c.), including a lease of the green at Ardee to John Taaffe

1787 (worn with some loss); a manuscript rent account 1825; a detailed manuscript account, ‘Myles Taaffe in account with G. Taaffe’, 1828-1845; manuscript list of legacies left by Elizabeth M. Taaffe 1875; a manuscript ‘Statement of family charges on Smarmore Estate’ dated [19]06; etc. George Taaffe, a pigskin note book containing a manuscript journal of his Continental travels, 1825, circa 40 pp; a matching account-book for the same tour; two music manuscript books; A typescript document (photocopy, 2 copies of some pages), in black ring-binder, being part of a memoir by John Taaffe, born Smarmore, died in Italy 1862, including an account of his connection with the circle of Byron and Shelley in Italy in the early 1820s (see pp. 105120). Evidently incomplete, but includes some interesting material. A printed commission, signed and sealed, appointing George Randall Joseph Taafe [sic] to a Special Reserve of Officers, 27 September 1914, and other commissions and warrants, some with seals; A carbon-copy letter-book kept by George Taaffe 1916-17; Printed documents including ‘A Letter from Wm. O’R----y, Esq. to her Grace the Duchess of R-xbgh’, dated Dundalk January 5th 1833, 1 pp (in 3 columns), probably a Dundalk printing, ms. note addressed to ‘Mr. Taaffe’ to rear, RARE; A copy of ‘The Prince and the Wild Geese’ by Brigid Brophy, London 1983, based on the story

of Julia Taaffe (one of the Smarmore family) and the Russian Prince Gagarin, who met her in Rome 1832 and sought unsuccessfully to marry her; A large portfolio containing photographs, mostly members of the Taaffe family and their homes, some in poor condition, including a good portrait of George Taaffe in uniform circa 1920s; a few drawings and watercolours by members of the family, and a collection of miscellaneous prints; A box containing a letter-book kept by Stephen Taaffe, 1860s/70s; a manuscript German grammar/exercise book, 19th c.;  three account books, 1870-75, 1870s/80s, 1890s; a rentbook, 1869/70; a bank cash book, 1860-61; two estate diaries, 1850s; five workmen’s account books, 1929-1938; a small collection of mounted photographic miniatures; various notebooks etc.; A smaller box containing various military handbooks, 1850s-1920s.

A comprehensive folder of images from the archive can be made available online upon request.  3500 - 5000

935 GEORGE DRUMMOND-FISH (IRISH, 18761938), WATERCOLOUR LANDSCAPE, west of Ireland coastal scene (possibly Co. Mayo), bays and inlets with sheep grazing on a rugged headland in foreground, 18 inches (46 cm) x 12 inches (30 cm) horizontal approx, signed at bottom left, framed and glazed. Note: George Drummond Fish saw service with the 6th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles at Gallipoli during WW1, as part of the 29th Brigade of the 10th (Irish) Division. There he produced numerous military paintings and sketches of the bleak landscape of the Gallipoli peninsula, including eight watercolour sketches that were used to illustrate Henry Hanna’s book “The Pals at Suvla Bay”, which recorded the exploits of the Irish Rugby Football Union volunteers of “D” Company of the 7th Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers during the Gallipoli campaign. Three of Drummond-Fish’s watercolours were also used to illustrate Bryan Cooper’s “The 10th (Irish) Division at Gallipoli”. Watercolours of Gallipoli by Drummond-Fish are also held by the National Army Museum, London, and the Royal Irish Regiment, Ballymena. In the post-war years, Drummond-Fish painted extensively in Ireland, Wales and Scotland, specialising in remote moorland and coastal scenes which, with their rugged terrain, perhaps provided a haunting reminder of the Gallipoli landscape which he had painted during the campaign of 1915. Lot accompanied by a copy of Henry Hanna’s “The Pals at Suvla Bay”, several of the illustrations within which, also depicting bays, inlets and low brush covered hills, bear a striking resemblance to this watercolour. 2015 is the Centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign See Illustration

In October 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar his father was killed. He was promoted to Lieutenant in September 1811 and was appointed Flag-Lieutenant to the commander-inchief in 1814. He served on HMS Euralyus, was promoted to Commander in 1814, appointed to command of the 18-gun brig-sloop HMS Espoir, part of the naval force in the Chesapeake during the War of 1812, and later took part in the attack on New Orleans. In 1816 he was appointed to command of the 10-gun brigsloop HMS Beaver and sent to the Caribbean, where he assumed command of the 18-gun HMS Rifleman in September 1817. He returned to England in August 1818. He undertook an extensive continental European tour in 1819 of which he kept a journal. He was promoted to Post Captain in 1822. He married Helen Mary Shoolbred (daughter of East India Company Surgeon John Shoolbred 1766-1831) in 1833 at Bath, Somerset and with her produced eight recorded children. The couple’s eldest daughter, (Helen) Sophia Duff 1834 - 1930, married Boscawen Trevor Griffith (whose name later changed to later GriffithBoscawen) as a result of which Norwich became the maternal grandfather of Arthur Sackville Trevor Griffith-Boscawen 1865 - 1946, a prominent British Conservative politician during the early decades of the twentieth century. Another daughter, Henrietta, was a novelist. Duff was promoted to Rear Admiral on 8 October 1852, and to Vice Admiral on 28 November 1857. He died at Bath, Somerset, England on 21 April 1862.
