Abstract:

A collection of "Sitwelliana" compiled by Arthur P. Bean, Jr., includes Bean's correspondence with Sitwell collectors and scholars, book and manuscript dealers and the University of Virginia Library; business papers related to his purchases; printed material and a postcard photograph of Edith Sitwell.

Letters from Frank Magro, Florence, Italy, mention Sitwell collecting, the Sitwell castle, the University of Virginia Sitwell exhibit and serving as literary executor for Osbert Sitwell.

Correspondence with Paul W. Motter discusses an attempted publication of "The death of Venus," Motter's Edith Sitwell collection, exhibits at the University of Virginia and the Gleeson Library at the University of San Francisco, a lunch with Francis Sitwell, and collector Neil Ritchie.

Letters from Neil Ritchie discuss his revision of Richard Fifoot's bibliography of Sacheverell Sitwell, collecting Sitwell, Sitwell archives in the U.S. and emigration to South Africa.

Several letters from Francis Sitwell and one from Reresby Sitwell mention performances, collections, and the death of Sacheverell. There is a very brief mention of a visit to Artur Rubenstein.

Correspondence with the University of Virginia chiefly discusses Bean's gifts of Sitwelliana and also includes, deeds, lists, appraisals and a photograph of Francis and Susanna Sitwell at the Sitwell exhibit opening.

Business papers include invoices and cancelled checks, dealer correspondence and quotes.

Miscellaneous printed material include a program for "Facade," reviews, and articles.

Larry McMurtry and Perdita Schaffner are correspondents.
