The collection contains manuscripts of "Honoré Daumier," "Tourgueneff," and "The saloon" (typed by Forrest Reid.); a translation of Alphonse Daudet's article on Turgenev; chapters VII, VIII, IX of "The Europeans," the last page from "Glasses"; and book reviewsof Elizabeth Stoddard's "Two Men" and Emile Zola's "Nana"; corrections to a page of the printed edition of "Princess Casamassima" and his play "Saloon."

The collection also contains proofs and drafts of works on James including "Henry James at Home," by H. Montgomery Hyde; "Lady Barberina and other tales" edited by Herbert Ruhm; "The master" by Ford Madox Ford and "To Henry James," by Max Beerbohm and Edmund Gosse.

Subjects discussed at some length include his writing and the art of writing; publication; problems with copyright and book pirating; photographic illustrations; the literary or artistic work of his correspondents and other contemporaries; travels in France and Italy; dislike of the United States and opinions on various European countries; life in London and the country; the theater, including productions of his work; social engagements; health; friends and family.

Topics of interest include his relationship with Violet Hunt, the mistress of Ford Madox Ford; his friendship with sculptor Hendrick C. Anderson; the precarious mental health of his sister Alice; opinion of Daudet, and his admiration and criticism of the works of Mrs. Humphrey Ward and the outbreak of World War I.

In addition there are very brief mentions of many of the noted literary figures of the day and occasional references to national and world events such as the assassination of Umberto I, the loss of the Titanic, Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee, and a 1911 railway strike.

The collection also contains some correspondence of James scholars and collectors, 1930-1969, and some correspondence of James family members, particulalry Henry James, Sr., who comments in 1863 that Thucydides records an instance where an enemy's slaves were liberated and suggests Horace Greeley be told, and expounds on his theories of love, marriage, divorce and womanhood. There are also letters of William James, Sr. and William James, Jr., Henry's brother and nephew.

The collection also contains numerous photographs and portraits of James, and Lamb House, Rye, England; cartoons of James by Max Beerbohm; and photographs of people and places associated with him.
