Abstract:

Primarily contracts of the publisher Houghton Mifflin Company, but also includes some from its predecessors: Hurd and Houghton (1864-1878); Houghton, Osgood and Company (1878-1880); Houghton, Mifflin and Company (1880-1908). Correspondence is between the publisher and the authors, or their representatives or contractors. Houghton, Mifflin and Company editors and staff include: C. W. Bramhall, James Thomas Fields, Ferris Greenslet, Franklin Sherman Hoyt, George Harrison Mifflin, E. C. Robinson, Theodore Roosevelt, Roger Livingston Scaife, and Horace Elisha Scudder. Authors include: Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Willa Cather, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Francis Jackson Garrison, Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894), William Dean Howells, Henry James, Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924), Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, Mary Noailles Murfree, Scott O'Dell, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry David Thoreau, and many others.

Files include book and journal contracts, along with related materials such as: copyright renewals, assignment of copyrights, copyright certificates, copyright cards, copyright deposit receipts, purchase orders, title pages, correspondence and interoffice memoranda, option agreements, and literary scout agreements. Correspondence and interoffice memoranda usually concern the fate of printing plates, royalties, remaindering of books and authors' estates and executorships. Documents and correspondence about wills and estates are noted. Also includes business records (disposal of printing plates, remainders, royalties), non-book contracts, and occasionally correspondence not related to contracts.
