Extracts from letters and diaries of William Whewell, with his MS poem, "On receiving a chain of Hair"

Bound volume of extracts of William Whewell's letters to his family and perhaps his own diaries, dating from 1812-1839 with the bulk of the material dated 1812-1821. The extracts, which form a narrative of Whewell's activities for this period, are written in an unidentified hand and quote letters to his father John Whewell, aunt Alice Lyon, and sisters Elizabeth, Martha, and Ann Whewell. These extracts are continued by short summaries of Whewell's activities in the years from 1821 to 1839, possibly drawn from diaries, but not identified as such. Accompanied by a poem signed W. W., written on his engagement to Cordelia Marshall.

W. A. Wright: Shakespeariana (notes and correspondence)

Letters relating to W. Aldis Wright's editions of Shakespeare (including collaborations with W. G. Clark) as well as notes on the texts and suggested emendations. Some letters addressed to W. G. Clark; several letters with no addressee may have originally been directed to him). Many letters from C. M. Ingleby and Brinsley Nicholson. A leather book binding, separated from its contents and in three pieces, is in the box [pencil note on inside front cover reads 'Add.MS.b.58 69-217]; the spine is stamped 'Shakespeare. Dyce 8', perhaps suggesting that some of the notes are by Alexander Dyce.
