Abstract:

Some letters undated. Correspondents: David Garrick, [William] Herbert, [Michael] Lort, Edmond Malone, Thomas Percy, Isaac Reed, [Paul? Vaillant], R.B. Sheridan and possibly another. Also, Steevens' notes on Beaumont and Fletcher; and Malone's advertisement for an edition of The plays of Shakspeare, embellished by Charlton Nesbit after Mr. Thurston, December 1804. The letters discuss points of literary interest; many concern Steevens' collaboration with Malone and Reed in the editing of Shakespeare's plays. In a letter to Garrick [1771?], (2), Steevens mentions Garrick's current altering of Hamlet. In another to Malone, May 9, 1782, (24), he refers to a small, full-length picture of Shakspeare, a pretended original. In two letters to Percy, 1797, (41 and 43), he notes prices fetched by the old quartos of Shakspeare. Several letters refer to Chatterton and Goldsmith. Correspondents and item numbers: David Garrick (1-4); [William] Herbert (5-9), [Michael Lort (10-12), Edmond Malone (13-37), Thomas Percy (38-44), Isaac Reed (15-48), [Paul? Vaillant] (49), R.B. Sheridan (53) and possibly another (50).
