Abstract:

Materials written by or to Jacob Tonson I or Jacob Tonson II, with a handful of bills addressed to Jacob Tonson III. Autograph manuscripts by prominent literary figures such as John Dryden, Aphra Behn, Richard Bentley, Joseph Addison, William Congreve, and John Vanbrugh as well as letters from others, chiefly members of the Kit-Cat Club. The correspondence is representative of both Tonson's professional and personal activities: several letters concern gathering engravings and subscriptions for a fine edition of Caesar's Commentaries (ultimately published by Samuel Clarke), while others thank Tonson for his gifts of cider. Transcripts of 10 letters from Alexander Pope concern Lewis Theobald's Shakespeare. Correspondents: Joseph Addison, Roger de Coverley (pseud.?), Francis Atterbury, William Congreve, S. Compton, Thomas Creech, Henry Molins Davenant, John Dennis, John Dryden, Charles Fitzroy (Duke of Grafton), George Montagu (Earl of Halifax), Elizabeth Jekyll, Joseph Jekyll, Basil Kennett, Sir Godfrey Kneller, Henrietta Churchill (Duchess of Marlborough), Henry Pelham, Thomas Pelham-Holles (Duke of Newcastle), Thomas Bowers, Richard Newton, Daniel Pulteney, Thomas Wentworth (Earl of Strafford), John Somers, Charles Seymour (Duke of Somerset), Abraham Stanyan, Charles Stanhope, George Stepney, Sir John Vanbrugh, George Wilson.

In addition to letters, the collection contains copyright assignments, receipts, bills (including one for expenses associated with the funeral of Jacob Tonson), drafts of the elder Jacob Tonson's will, and poems.
