  • Provenance: The signed inscription: 'Eccellentissimo Signore mio, Padrone Collendissimo Vivendo in me sempre il medesimo ardore di farmi conoscere per servitore dell'Eccellenza vostra, non perciò ho avuto animo in questo concorso di doni che le vengon fatti, di presentarmile inanzi. Ma hora non posso più ritenere tal mio disiderio che non le metta in cospetto questi due forestieri, sapendo quanto l'Eccellenza vostra sia fautrice di vertuosi et di pellegrini, et maggiormente sarà di questi, per venir essi banditi dalla patria loro. La nobiltà, dunque, dell'animo suo degnerà di dar loro ricetto tra tanti altri scrittori gravi che appresso di lei si truovano, et mi renderà certo che non le sarà mai discara la mia servitù inutile, sì, ma reale et fedele. Dell'Ecellenza vostra Divotissimo servitore, 4.1.2. Alberto Mortoni'. The gist of this is that Morton can no longer restrain his desire to present two strangers, presumably foreigners to his patron, knowing that he is the protector of the virtuous, of pilgrims and of writers, and that he will take particular care of them, since they have been exiled from their homeland. These two English emigres presumably came to the notice of Wotton and Morton during their posting to Venice between 1604 and 1609. The friendship between the two men is described by Izaak Walton as he quotes from a letter in his 'Life of Sir Henry Wotton' in which the older man recalls his nephew as 'dearer to me than mine own being', and of course subsequently penned his elegy 'Tears mourned at the grave of Sir Albertus Morton'. Wotton's career, as evidenced in this diplomatic gift, was spent implementing James I's ambition for wider European influence but later overshadowed by his aphorism that an 'Ambassador is an honest gentleman sent abroad to lie for the good of his country.'

    Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 - 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. BOOKS
