Frontispiece
Signed by Princess Amelia and initialed by Princess Augusta, 1810 November 21
In: Music book
Box 816

The Archive records both an evanescent English popular culture and the layers of meaning which the music held for its owners. The printed frontispiece to this manuscript music book was inscribed both by Princess Amelia and by her older sister Augusta, who has written, “Given me by my two dear brothers the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge after my beloved Amelia’s death.” Princess Amelia died on November 2, 1810, at the age of twenty-seven.
