Description

Summary

A collection of letters from well-known literary figures, chiefly English, of the late Victorian and modern periods. The correspondence relates almost entirely to the literary activities of the individual writers and to that of a few, now extinct, literary periodicals. With few exceptions the material is in holograph form, and many of the more recent letters were written to the donor. A great number of these items were received laid in first and rare editions presented by Mr. Coykendall
