MUNICH CORPS OF CADETS: A curious item relating to the Corps of Cadets in Munich comprising a calligraphic pen & ink title leaf:

Item No. 16660

Not Published: Corps des Cadets Munchen1822 - 1825. "DENKE AN GROSSHESELO he Fur Erinnerung an deinen Freund" which I believe translates as "Remember Grossheselo he. - In memory of your friend". This signed and dated Max Waydtmann, Cadet. Munchen 3rd February 1823. Within each letter of this inscription is another word inscribed, these would appear to be the names of other Cadets although some contain other words, i.e. (translated) "The Magnificent Court Theatre in the Year 1817 Wieseroffriet".

Item No. 16660_3

Item No. 16660

There then follows 34 individual leaves inscribed by indivdual cadets, these are dated 1822-1825 (mostly 1823), one with attractive affixed black paper "box" with lift up flaps, one flap inscribed "Sey Treulos" with "nie deinen Freund" revealed below; another flap inscribed "Verachte Alle" with " die dire bases Zutrauen" revealed below, & "Liebe Niemand" with "als dein Madeben" revealed below. The whole "box" covers an engraving of a cherub. A translation of the leaf that accompanies the "box" is given below.

The title leaf and the 34 other leaves all gilt edged and enclosed in a full crimson grained morocco book box, decorative gilt border to sides, all edges gilt, spine gilt and gilt lettered " DER FREUNDSCHAFE GEWEIHET". The box measures 6 1/2 x 3 7/8 x 1 inch. Box & contents very good. A curious and very attractive item.

The translation of the handwritten leaf accompanying the "box" leaf is as follows: God wanted to make the people happy, so He created love. Gratefully they received this heavenly gift; He wanted to reward them, and He created friendship. When reading these few lines, dear George, remember your devoted friend and brother F.M. Baunach Cadet au Corps des CadetsMunich, 3rd December 1822. Remember sometimes the romance we played with Nany Kreiterer in Rosenheim in the month of October in the year 1822, the happy hours we spent in her company, the tender squeezes of hands and our delight at the two bouquets of flowers she gave us when we said farewell. Don't forget the blissful hours on the eve of our departure when we were floating on air, dancing with her in turns. How because of this lovely creature we spent two whole hours devoutly in church only to be near her heavenly presence. Think of the night in Grafing, where we enjoyed a very pleasant bottle of Forster's from the Corps' crates, and we then ranted and raved at the night watchman who had the audacity to disturb our sleep.
