    A very fine Tooled Black Morocco Leather Writing Box with a campaign gilt brass handle / escutcheon in front of a Bramah lock, the top bearing the following inscription:

     
    A PARTING GIFT FROM THE MARQUIS DE SOMMERY TO THe REV.d H.S. POLLARD M.A. THAMES DITTON 1855.
     
    in gold lettering.
     
    The interior components are decorated with double gold lines. Beneath the writing surface there is a matching blotting folder, and opposite the two two larger flaps cover a latched pouch on one side, and writing tools, including an etched mother o' pearl rule and ink scraper, on the other. In the centre a false mahogany floor covers a secret compartment, and springs up by means of a clever mechanism. At one side the narrow compartment contains a set of Berry's Patent tooled leather Ink well and light box, both in excellent condition, as well as a detachable ebony tray.
