Biography/History

This is a collection of manuscripts obtained by the Free Library of Philadelphia from various donations. Much of the collection was donated by Philadelphia book collectors, Mr. and Mrs. Richard A. Gimbel and William McIntire Elkins, with additions from other donors and trust fund purchases. Although the majority of the authors are represented with only a few pieces of work, nine authors are better represented. These include: American authors James Branch Cabell (1879-1958), Ezra Pound (1885-1972), Agnes Repplier (1855-1950), and Mark Twain (1835-1910); English novelists Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) and William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863); Irish writers Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) and George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950); and Scottish novelist Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894).

Scope and Contents

This collection contains letters, manuscript fragments, autographs, and other documents by famous authors. The bulk of the collection consists of letters written by the authors to various friends, acquaintances, editors, and critics. Of particular interest are the complete drafts of Joseph Conrad’s "A Duel," a nearly complete draft of Victory, four pieces by Oscar Wilde (including a handwritten notebook of his sketches and poetry), and the textual corrections made by Tennyson in his  Poems, chiefly lyrical and  Enoch Arden. Select items have been digitized and linked to their image in the Free Library's Digital Collections.

Arrangement note

For purposes of the finding aid, items are arranged in two artificial series based on how well-represented a writer is in this collection. For the first series, "Writers with more than four collection items," each writer serves as a sub-series and items are arranged within each sub-series chronologically. For the second series, "Writers with fewer than four collection items," items are in alphabetical order by author’s last name and then in chronological order. The physical location of collection items depends on their length, with most of the longer items being housed separately.
