British Theatrical and Literary Prints is a collection of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century engravings and etchings depicting scenes and characters from 267 plays and stories by 112 authors that were published in England and Ireland during those two centuries. The prints are generally small in format—octavo or quarto in size—and most were extracted from publications.
The collection contains correspondence, personal and family papers, and financial records that document the life, interests, and work of the American philanthropist Annie Burr Auchincloss Lewis (1902-1959).
The Norton Nicholls Correspondence collection contains letters the British clergyman received from friends and acquaintances, and letters he wrote to a close friend, the poet Thomas Gray, and to his mother Jane Floyer Nicholls. Also present is Nicholls's short "Prayer to be use before inoculation" and two letters from Sir Horace Mann to unidentified recipients.
The collection consists of letters sent to George Selwyn by nearly one hundred friends, associates, and family members; they range in content from short formal notes of invitation to long and descriptive letters from friends in his social and political circles. Also present are five letters written by Selwyn to colleagues and unidentified recipients.
A collection of 18th- and 19th-century prints, mostly extracted from publications, arranged geographically.
The collection contains correspondence and research materials related to publications on Horace Walpole edited by Helen Toynbee and Paget Toynbee, as well as press clippings documenting the reception of their work.
A collection of printed portraits, topographical views, real estate advertisements, maps, and other ephemera associated with the English historian and collector Horace Walpole (1717-1797), his family, and their properties. The majority of the items are plates produced for publications, and over half of the collection is related to two of the family's estates, Strawberry Hill in Twickenham, Middlesex, and Houghton Hall near King's Lynn, Norfolk.
The collection includes approximately 3,000 letters to and from Horace Walpole as well as other manuscript materials by him, including copies of Aedes Walpolianae and The Mysterious Mother, his commonplace books, his "Books of Materials," and various miscellanies.
The Thomas Walpole Family Papers contain approximately 400 letters and other papers, mostly dating from the 1760s through the 1830s, that document the commercial, financial, political, legal, and diplomatic ventures of four generations of one branch of the Walpole family in England, being Thomas Walpole (1727-1803), his sons Thomas Walpole (1755-1840) and Lambert Theodore Walpole (1757-1798), grandson Spencer Horatio Walpole (1806-1898), and great-grandson Sir Spencer Walpole (1839-1907).
