Letters (Miscellany) and Letters (A - C) to Sir James George Frazer

FRAZ/1-4 consists of four boxes containing just over 575 letters, most of them addressed to J. G. Frazer. The letters span 1888-1941, but the bulk date from the 1920s and 1930s, and primarily concern Frazer’s works and related personal business. An alphabetic sequence of letters spans the four boxes, preceded by a shorter one of 62 letters in FRAZ/1, and succeeded by a collection of 110 letters written to congratulate Frazer on the award of the Order of Merit in FRAZ/4. FRAZ/1 is unusual in that it includes the only original letters from J. G. Frazer in the papers (29 of them: Items 4-29, 39, 42-43); there are also thirteen typed copies of his letters in this box (Items 44-54, 82 and 84) dating from the 1930s, after Frazer's eyesight failed and a secretary was employed. There are 9 original letters from Lilly Frazer to William James Lewis (Items 30-38), and a copy of a letter from Lilly to Sir John Myres (Item 55). Three other copies of James's letters from the late 1930s appear in boxes 2-4 (Items 2/95, 3/43, 3/47), and there is also a draft of a letter to Lord Stamfordham in box 4 (Item 119). Two other copies of letters from Lilly appear in box 3: to R. R. Marett (Item 3) and Norman Parley (Item 44).

Letters of Congratulation on the Order of Merit and General Letters

FRAZ/4 is the fourth of four boxes (FRAZ/1-4) forming an alphabetic sequence of letters addressed to J. G. Frazer. It also contains a collection of 110 letters written to congratulate Frazer on the award of the Order of Merit [see also letters to Lilly Frazer on the same subject, FRAZ/14]. A draft of a letter from J. G. Frazer to Lord Stamfordham may be found at FRAZ/4/119. A fuller description may be found in the scope and content note for FRAZ/1.

Writings: 'On Certain Burial Customs as Illustrative of the Primitive Theory of the Soul'

FRAZ/5 consists of one box containing photostats of Frazer's interleaved and annotated copy of an offprint of 'On Certain Burial Customs as Illustrative of the Primitive Theory of the Soul' [published in the 'Journal of the Anthropological Institute', Vol. XV, 1885]. The photostats are enlarged positive and negative copies. Accompanied by two slightly enlarged line block prints of leaves 32-33, which appear as the facsimiles at the back of Theodore Besterman's 'Bibliography of Sir James George Frazer' as an example of work interleaved and kept up to date by Frazer. The photostats and prints are undated and possibly date from 1934, when Besterman's 'Bibliography' was published.

Miscellaneous Writings and Printed Material

FRAZ/6 consists of two boxes of shorter works and printed material, both by J. G. Frazer and others, spanning the dates [1918]-1938. Included are galley proofs, drafts of lectures and speeches, typescripts, as well as offprints and pamphlets. J. H. Hutton's 1938 Frazer Lecture appears as in final proof form (Item 12), Anatole France's preface to 'Sir Roger de Coverley' appears as a manuscript draft with corrections (Item 15), and Georges Roth's 'Selected Passages' from Frazer's works appears in final form (Item 13).

Press Cuttings

FRAZ/7 consists of two boxes of cuttings spanning the years 1921-1940. One box contains loose cuttings and whole issues of periodicals, and the other box contains 7 albums of press cuttings for the years 1936-1938. Four of the albums contain cuttings related to three books: 'The Fear of the Dead', 'Totemica', and 'Anthologia Anthropologica. The Native Races of Africa and Madagascar'. More reviews of 'Totemica' appear in another album: 'Cuttings, 30/1/38' (FRAZ/7/8). The Africa album only contains three cuttings, of which two are about the book. Two newspaper photographs in 'Press Cuttings, 1937' are of James and Lilly together (Items 18 and 51).

Music Manuscripts and Printed Material

FRAZ/8 consists of one box of manuscript music scores and related printed material, and other printed material spanning the dates [c 1885]-1940. Both groupings include material by or relating to J. G. Frazer and Lilly Frazer as well. The Printed Material includes Frazer's poem 'To My Wife', and both the address on the foundation of the Frazer Lectureship and Frazer's reply, as well as 16 other items gathered under the heading Miscellaneous Printed Material.

Writings: 'The Worship of Nature'

FRAZ/10 consists of two boxes containing the manuscript draft of 'The Worship of Nature'. The draft, in J. G. Frazer's hand, is corrected and has addenda slips, with typesetters' marks, and dates from 1925. Chapters are divided and numbered in a different manner than in the final printed volume. The title page for chapters XIII and XIV [printed chapters XIV and XV] carries an R. & R. Clark ink date stamp of 15 Aug. 1925, and the last chapter title page lists the date Frazer sent it to Clark: 15 Aug. 1925.

Writings: 'The Fear of the Dead in Primitive Religion'

FRAZ/9 consists of 1 box of material relating to 'The Fear of the Dead in Primitive Religion' spanning the dates 1931-1936. It contains the manuscript draft of Vol. I, printed in 1932; the typescript of Volume III, and a typescript of a notebook containing bibliographies for subjects covered in all three volumes. There is more material housed in FRAZ/26, including some slight variants of the bibliographies; and material relating to the French translation, 'La crainte des morts'.

Writings: 'Publii Ovidii Nasonis Fastorum Libri Sex, The Fasti of Ovid', Commentary

FRAZ/12 consists of three boxes containing material relating primarily to the Macmillan edition of the 'Fasti' of Ovid, spanning the dates 1926-1931. These are primarily galley proofs for the Commentary in the Macmillan edition, most of them stamped 'First Proof' and carrying date stamps and corrections in Frazer's hand. Many are accompanied by the envelopes they were originally sent in. Proofs for Book III are missing. Proofs for Book V include notes for a lecture on the Argei given at Queens' College, Cambridge 1 Mar., 1926.

Writings: 'Publii Ovidii Nasonis Fastorum Libri Sex, The Fasti of Ovid' and 'Ovid's Fasti', Text and Translation and Giacomo Boni Photographs of Nemi

FRAZ/13 consists of two boxes of partial galley proofs for the Loeb and Macmillan editions of the 'Fasti' of Ovid and related photographs, spanning the dates [1901?]-1926. The Loeb edition was well underway with proofs being reviewed when production stopped after reaching an agreement with Macmillan in 1926. Macmillan agreed to publish a 5 volume set with extensive notes and commentary; after two years had elapsed, Loeb agreed to publish a one volume edition as part of the Loeb Classical Library, using no more than 50 pages of notes from the Macmillan edition.

Letters of Congratulation on the Order of Merit Sent to Lilly Frazer and Letters Relating to the 'Fasti'

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'.

Letters: (A-V) to Sir James George Frazer, 'Anthologia Anthropologica', and the Besterman 'Blbliography'

FRAZ/15 consists of one box of 157 letters comprising three distinct groups: letters to Sir James Frazer on general topics, with a small grouping within it of testimonial letters in support of the publication of Frazer's anthropological notebooks, followed by letters written to Lilly Frazer concerning subscriptions to Besterman's 'Bibliography'. The dates of the letters span 1898-1937.

Letters 1-28 and 45-47 are written to James George Frazer and cover general topics reflective of other runs of correspondence in the collection.
Letters 29-44 are replies to letters asking for testimonials of the utility of the publication of Frazer's anthropological notebooks, which were published as the "Anthologia Anthropologica" series. The letters are written to Frazer and include letters from influential anthropologists whose letters appear in other runs of correspondence in the collection. Most of the letters have sticky labels affixed to many corners as if they were in an album at one time.

Letters 48-152 are letters written to Lady Frazer concerning subscriptions to Theodore Besterman's "Bibliography". It is evident that she has written not only with information on the bibliography but also with a description of Frazer's blindness and the multiple surgeries, and many correspondents sympathise with his troubles. Many of these correspondents also appear elsewhere in the collection.

Letters (Baddeley-Marett) to Lilly Frazer

FRAZ/18-19 consists of two boxes containing 225 letters mostly addressed to Lilly Frazer. The letters span 1901-1941, but the bulk date from the 1920s and 1930s, and primarily concern J. G. Frazer's works and related personal business. There is a more extensive run of letters to Lilly Frazer in FRAZ/32-33, but letters to her appear throughout the collection as well, in part because the subject matter is the same as those to Sir James, as she assumed the role of secretary/agent after their marriage.

An alphabetic sequence spans the two boxes. One item appears out of place: the incomplete manuscript draft of Lucien Lévy-Bruhl's preface to "La crainte des morts" (Item 107), which is filed after three unrelated letters from Lévy-Bruhl.

Library Catalogues and Plan

FRAZ/20 consists of two boxes containing three catalogues of Sir James Frazer's private library: a complete list created in 1907 [by John Roscoe], a list of additions created in 1922, and a two-part list created in 1935-1936 with an update in 1940. Accompanied by an exact and somewhat decorative plan of the library made by assistant P. W. Filby.

Research Miscellany

FRAZ/21 consists of two boxes containing original material and printed material written by others, manuscript notes and drafts by J. G. Frazer, and photographs, including sixteen views of Achaea. The materials span 1888-1941 but the bulk date from 1900-1929.

FRAZ/22 consists of one box of papers relating to J. G. Frazer's books, speeches, and articles written from 1884 to 1903, arranged in chronological order of appearance.

FRAZ/23 consists of one box of papers relating to J. G. Frazer's books, speeches, and articles written primarily from 1903 to 1921, arranged in chronological order of appearance (except for the last item, possibly added later).

Other papers relating to Frazer's 'Myths on the Origin of Fire' (Items 26-42) include two letters from Malinowski concerning a myth from the village of Moligilagi; a letter from Miles Burkitt about the first appearance of fire, mentioning evidence of fire at Piltdown; two more letters about fire in prehistory from Marcellin Boule and Aimé Rutot, as well as a letter from Herbert Ian Hogbin enclosing a folktale about Pa'eva and Ke Ahi, gods of the sea and fire. An entire copy of 'The Papuan Villager', Vol. 1, No. 1, printed in Port Moresby in February 1929 and designed for the people of Papua, contains an article headed 'The Fire and the Dog'.
