Scope and content
'Vondel' written on the front cover. 'Argument' of the drama also translated; cast list included. Translation written on the right side of each page, with the left side used for corrections; line numbers given at intervals of five, up to 450. Single sheet inserted between ff. 4 and 5 with part translation of the 'Argument'. Insertions between ff. 19 and 20: 1 foolscap bifolium with an (incomplete) introduction to the work for an English reader, including the possible influence of Vondel on Milton [perhaps intended to be sent with the translated first act to a publisher]; two foolscap sheets with translation of a dialogue between Apollion and Beelzebub [also in text in book].
Also inserted here: letter, 4 Oct 1934, from Kitty Trevelyan, Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth, to 'Uncle Bob', returning the 'St. Francis story' which she liked 'quite immensely' and found very moving in places; hopes he will publish it. Will return the other books she borrowed in a few days; wishes she had had more time to read them, as she was only able to 'dip into them'. He is very generous about lending books; hopes they all come back to him safely. Back of the letter used by Trevelyan for part of a translation of Vondel's "Address to all Fellow-Poets and Patrons of the Drama". This continues on the back of 5 single sheets [two formed by halving a sheet advertising a sale at D. H. Evans' stationery department on a sample of their 'Hadrian Papyrus']. Another insertion is a sheet of headed notepaper from I Tatti [Bernard Berenson's home] on which Trevelyan has copied out Ezekiel 28.12-15 and Isaiah 14.12-15.
Vondel's "Address to all Fellow-Poets and Patrons of the Drama" translated from the back of the book in; single sheet inserted between ff. 36-37 on which Trevelyan has copied out Jude 6.
