Personal

Includes: a manuscript account of a tour by yacht on the Norfolk Broads, perhaps by Huia Onslow's governess Helen Moodie; several items from Onslow's time at Eton College, such as a printed programme for an Eton College Scientific Society Conversazione, in which Onslow features as demonstrator and lecturer and two copies of another lecture given by Onslow.

There are also pieces of creative work such as a poem, The Story of the Lost Ice Age, written at Eton for a prize, and a draft of a story, The Sobbing Water. Poems appear too with notes on ascents of the Croda del Lago and lists of books about the Dolomites, showing Onslow's interest in mountaineering. Also present are Onslow's translations of poems from Les Amours de I. du Bellay, by Joachim du Bellay, which according to the memoir published by his wife he was thinking of publishing in 1913-1914.

Two items are posthumous: the order for the memorial service for Onslow held at Trinity College, Cambridge in October 1922, and uncut proofs for first chapter of Huia Onslow: a Memoir by his wife Muriel Onslow, published in 1924.

Notes by Henry Blundell on physics lectures attended by him at Douai

This book contains a fair copy of notes made by Henry Blundell on a series of physics lectures, presumably attended by him at Douai. The name Douai does not occur in the book, but it is dated in the period when Blundell was there (1743-5).

The title ‘Phy[si]ca | seu | Phi[losophi]a na[tur]alis. | Prol[e]gomena.' appears on f. 1v, and ‘PHYSICA' is stamped on the spine. The
first of these titles is followed below by ‘Hen: Blundell—1744' and some further words. The written text concludes on f. 321r with the inscription ‘Die 1o julii an: D[o]m[in]i 1744 | Horis 84 | Hen: Blundell'.

The text is heavily abbreviated, but the omission of letters is not generally marked, as in the title cited above.

The seven engravings inserted among the MS leaves are as follows:

f. 2. St Thomas Aquinas, in a decorative border, with a descriptive caption beginning ‘SAINT THOMAS de la Noble Race des Comtes d'Aquin', subscribed ‘Chez Crepy a St. Iacques'.

f. 30. Réné Descartes, in a decorative border, with a descriptive caption beginning ‘RENE DES CARTES Seigneur de Peron', subscribed ‘Crepy rue St. Iacques a St. Iacques'.

f. 34. Astronomical diagram, headed ‘Tabula 20' and subscribed ‘Jacobus Jollain aletoille ex[cudit] cum priu[ilegio] regis' (‘aletoille' is written above the line, as if omitted by mistake) and ‘rue st. jacques a la belle etoile'.

f. 282: Diagram, headed ‘Tab. 9' and subscribed ‘A Paris chez Vallet.'

f. 287: Diagram, headed ‘TAB' (no number) and subscribed ‘A Paris chez Vallet 1724.'

f. 289: Diagram, headed ‘Tabula .10.' and subscribed ‘Jacobus Jollain fecit et excudit cum priv[ilegio] Regis aletoile'.

f. 298: Diagram, headed ‘Tabula. 8.'; no imprint.

The printed sheet (f. 322) is headed ‘PHILOSOPHIA NATURALIS', and contains a summary, or syllabus, of the subject broken down into three (perhaps termly) series of numbered sections.

Blundell, Henry (1724-1810), art collector

Scientific Correspondence

The material is presented alphabetically, with dates and a brief indication of any information of particular interest.

Taylor's undimmed scientific reputation, the high respect he enjoyed, and the eagerness with which younger scientists continued to seek and accept his advice, emerge with remarkable clarity from the letters, most of which date from the later period of his life.

As with the personal correspondence in Section A, only incoming letters usually survive. Professor G.K. Batchelor was, however, able to obtain originals or photocopies of Taylor's letters from some of his correspondents, and thus reconstruct a relatively complete sequence. Examples of this can be found at D.7, D.13, D.29, D.43-D.46, D.52, D.60, D.64, D.65, D.71, D.87.

Apart from these more substantial exchanges, some ms. drafts or copies of Taylor's replies to individual correspondents also survive. They are noted in the relevant entries. A full list is appended below for ease of reference.
