Abstract:

The collection consists primarily of correspondence, 1820-1927 and n.d., between Carlyle, his wife Jane Welsh Carlyle, and various other correspondents. Letters present not only a narrative of their own lives, but also provocative discussion of the ideas and events of their time, including the Peterloo Massacre of 1819, the coronation of Queen Victoria, the repeal of the Corn Laws, the Great Exhibition of 1851, the deaths of Sir Robert Peel and the Duke of Wellington, the Crimean War, and the rise of modern Germany. Also to be found are vivid references to noteworthy contemporaries such as Robert Browning, Tennyson, Dickens, Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Turgenev, and others.

Correspondents include Carlyle's secretary, Henry Larkin; John Fergusson; Thomas Murray; Basil Montagu; Bryan Waller Procter ("Barry Cornwall"); Thomas Erskine; Richard Owen; Frederic Chapman; William McCall; and John Reuben Thomas.

Includes an August 1863 letter from Carlyle likely directed to Virginia devine and abolitionist Moncure Conway, who travelled to London in 1863 armed with letters of introduction from his mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Also included is a volume of clippings on Carlyle's life and work compiled by his biographer, David Alec Wilson, as well as fragments of Carlyle's writings including his broadside SHOOTING NIAGARA: AND AFTER? and his HISTORY OF FREDERICH II OF PRUSSIA. Also contains a photograph showing part of Carlyle's study.

The unprocessed material in the collection (12 items, 1845-1893 and n.d.) includes miscellaneous correspondence, consisting of one letter to James Aitkin; one to Sir Richard Owen concerning inviting O. M. Mitchel (an American astronomer) to lecture on the Mississippi at Somerset House; one letter from Walter Savage Landor prior to Carlyle's only visit with Landor; one letter from Carlyle to London publisher [Frederic] Chapman referring to two manuscripts by Mr. Meccall; one letter from Carlyle to Boehm; and one letter from Carlyle to John Reuben Thompson, as well as several pieces to or from unidentified correspondents. There is also a cartes-de-visite of Carlyle.
