Abstract:

Correspondents: Joseph Q. Adams, [Sir Walter Armstrong], Mrs [M.C.] Birchenough, Edward Dowden, J.W. Ebsworth, Sir William Flower, Sir Emund Gosse, H.G. Granville-Barker, William Heinemann, Sir James Knowles, [T.P.?] O'Connor, J. Pearson and Co., [W.F.?] Prideaux, Sir Francis Jeune, Baron St. Helier, Thomas Seccombe, [G.G. Smith], Sir William Thiselton-Dyer, [W. Moy?] Thomas, [C.J. Toovey], [G.P.] Winship, William Winter, and several others. Many of the letters were written as assistant editor and later editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. One to Mrs Birchenough (3) discusses a passage in The merry wives of Windsor; one to Dowden (4) discusses Shakespeare's sonnets; another to Barker (14) congratulates him on his production of A midsummer night's dream. Those to Messrs. J. Pearson and Co., 1899-1901 (21-41, 50-51) concern his writing of a preface to their A catalogue of Shakespeareana, and suggest purchasers of the collection. In (28) and (38) he mentions H.C. Folger and his apparently unlimited purse. (42-49) from Albert Jackson and Son to Pearson and Co., March-April 1900 record Marsden J. Perry's purchase of a selection of the collection and include a note by Perry. A few letters relate to Lee's compilation of his Census of extant copies [of the First Folios], 1902. Also, a leaf of notes on Lee's The French Renaissance in England by Seccombe (60), notes of this work (81), and a review of it from The Guardian, Dec. 2, 1910 (82).
