At a Glance
This is a heterogeneous collection of manuscript typescript material which relates to Joan of Arc. The material ranges in date and character from a 15th-century manuscript, CHRONIQUE DES ROIS CHARLES VI ET VII par Gilles Le Bouvier, on 241 paper leaves, which contains a long account of the life and exploits of Joan, to the 12 page typescript of Ambassador William C. Bullitt's address, LE FETE DE JEANNE D'ARC A PHILADELPHIA, broadcast on the Voice of America, May 9, 1943. The collection includes a number of manuscripts and typescripts of literary and scholarly works on Joan of Arc by Guy Endore, Andrew Lang, Charles Maurras, Pearl Mahaffey, Wilfred P. Barrett, Thomas Jones, and others. There are also letters from scholars and writers on the subject including Anatole France, Robert Southey, Samuel L. Clemens, Cardinal Manning, and Andrew Land. There are also a few original documents contemporary to and relating to Joan and her associates. Six such documents are bound into Gabrial Hanotaux's JEANNE D'ARC, Paris Hachette, 1911, as extra-illustrations.

The material is all cataloged in the Griscom Jeanne d'Arc Collection (from J1/A68 to J7/B87, interfiled with the collection of printed books), but some of the cataloging is rather inadequate. There is a more complete list which describes each item in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
