Abstract:

Material relates to the unpublished 5th v. of Winsor's original history, in 4 v., published in 1880. The 5th v., covering the years 1880-1898, was to be edited by Frederick E. Goodrich and Wm. H.

Belcher, who had secured the publication rights to the original series of essays, published by James Osgood & Co. as well as the subscription list, electrotype plates (not in the coll.) and other materials, presented them to the Athenaeum in 1930, coinciding with the tercentenary publication Fifty Years of Boston.

Collection includes (relating to the Memorial history), the original circular, some proof sheets, with corrections, instructions to the printer, the agreement with the engraver (S.S. Kilburn) with lists of the engravings and their cost, and correspondence with the binder (Wm. J. Wilson). Relating to the 5th v. are agreements & contracts, correspondence with contributors (Sylvester Baxter, Edward Everett Hale) and between the editors, information on copyright, corrected typescripts of unpublished essays by William H. Lincoln, C.W. Ernst, Baxter, Hale, Winslow Warren and Horace G. Wadlin, and other material.
