Abstract:

Papers (11 items, dated 1921-1953) including the original manuscript of Elizabeth and Essex (New York and London, 1928) and a statement by Professor Charles Richard Sanders of Duke University concerning the gift of the manuscript to the university; a letter from Strachey to Spalding, his publisher, 1921; letters, 1928, from Strachey to Crosby Gaige (1882-1949), book collector, regarding a limited edition of Elizabeth and Essex; a letter and a postcard, 1945, from Arthur Pforzheimer, antiquarian bookseller of New York, to Sanders concerning that edition.

Addition (2011-0113) (6 items, 0.1 lin. ft.; dated 1929) contains three autograph letters from Strachey to a Major [John C.] Daniell about Elizabeth and Essex. Also includes related typescript newspaper editorial and clippings.

Strachey promised to make this alteration in subsequent editions, but resolutely defended his description of Daniell as a 'ruffian' and his account of Daniell's ruin in the book. He then asked for forgiveness for his remarks "if, as I suppose, you are one of Daniell's descendants. My only excuse is that it all happened a long time ago! ..."
