Scope and content
FRAZ/14 consists of one box containing 38 letters addressed to Lilly Frazer on J. G. Frazer's award of the Order of Merit in 1925 [see also letters to J. G. Frazer on the award, FRAZ/4], and 53 letters addressed to J. G. Frazer relating to Frazer's translation of Ovid's "Fasti" dated 1923-1930. The letters to Lilly Frazer are arranged alphabetically, with the exception of the letter from Pauline de Broglie, which was previously unidentified, and which is filed at the end of the run before one letter that remains unidentified.
Letters 36-87 relate to the publication of Frazer's translation of Ovid's 'Fasti', which appeared first as a five volume set published by Macmillan in 1929, and then, per an agreement reached in February 1926, as a one volume version for the Loeb Classical Library published in 1931. There are three subgroups within these letters: items 36-52 relate to the research done for the commentary, items 53-69 relate to the publishers' agreements; and items 70-87 are letters to libraries relating primarily to reproductions of the manuscripts of the 'Fasti'.
