Abstract:

The original inventory includes: correspondence relating to book and antique collecting of Robert S. Pirie; most of the letters are addressed to Pirie from fellow collectors, bibliophiles, and rare book and antique dealers. Correspondents include but are not limited to: F.B. Adams, Marie Angel, John Carter, John F. Fleming, E.P. Goldschmidt (London), Hamill & Barker (Chicago), Rupert Hart-Davis, John Hayward, B.E. Jurel-Jenson, Maggs Brothers (London), A.N.L. Munby, Michael Papantonio (Seven Gables Bookshop), Charles S. Ryskamp, John Sparrow, and J.L. Vellekoop of E.P. Goldschmidt. There is a collection of over 100 ALS and TLS from Philip Hofer of the Department of Graphic Art at Harvard University and 24 ALS from Sir Geoffrey Keynes concering preparation of the 4th edition of his Bibliography of Dr. John Donne (1973). Of the almost 200 ALS, TLS and telegrams from the firm of Bernard Quaritch in London, the majority are signed by P. N. Poole-Wilson.

Supplementary inventory includes: appraisals and descriptions of furniture and objets d'art and some books; a number of the appraisals were made by Paul Magriel. There is substantial material concerning the exhibition John Donne at the Grolier Club in 1972 that was organized by Pirie and included many items from his collection. Also: files of personal correspondence for the years 1980-1089 and the complete files documenting the creation of his publication for the Roxburghe Club, an edition of his original manuscript of Robert Naunton's Fragmenta Regalia, printed by the Stinehour Press in 2002 for distribution to members. The complete file of papers relating to his role as an executor of the estate of antiquarian bookseller John Fleming is also included, as are papers relating to his sponsorship of a publications program with the Grolier Poetry Bookshoop (Laura Solano) in Cambridge Massachusetts.
