THOMAS BABINGTON MACAULAY
RARE ORIGINAL SIGNED & DATED LETTER
Albany, April 16. 1842
Authentic handwritten, signed, and dated letter by Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay PC (1800-1859), English historian, essayist and politician whose notable works include 'The History of England,' 'Critical and Historical Essays,' and 'Lays of Ancient Rome.'
On a folded sheet of paper, measuring approx 7x9 inches. In very good condition; the ink imprint remains strong and unblemished. The paper shows toning, glue residue, and folding creases. A rare and important piece of historical and literary ephemera.
Macaulay wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer; his books on British history were hailed as literary masterpieces. He held political office as Secretary at War between 1839 and 1841 and Paymaster-General between 1846 and 1848. He played a major role in introducing English and western concepts to education in India. He supported the replacement of Persian by English as the official language, the use of English as the medium of instruction in all schools, and the training of English-speaking Indians as teachers. In his view, Macaulay divided the world into civilized nations and barbarism, with Britain representing the high point of civilization.
