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. In the letters, Strachey concedes that he should have described John Daniell in Elizabeth and Essex as the Earl's "follower" rather than "servant," in view of the pedigree the Major contributed to the TIMES Literary Supplement. 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! ..."
