Letters from Henry Montagu and Agnata Butler to Mr and Mrs Walter Sichel

Nine letters from Henry Montagu Butler and three from Agnata Butler; one sent from Harrow, the others from the Lodge at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Mention in letter of 20 Dec. 1915 of their sons 'Jim and Gordon... now in "dug-outs"... within 150 yards of the Turkish trenches, exposed to incessant sniping and shrapnel. Their letters... are not only loving and vivid but always, especially perhaps Gordon's full of "laughter"...'

Letters and papers removed from Weever’s Epigrammes

In a prospectus issued in 1910 (Add. MS. a. 460/2/1) McKerrow announced his intention of issuing a short series of reprints of Elizabethan and Jacobean tracts, to be published for the editor by Sidgwick and Jackson and printed at the Oxford University Press. Subscribers were sought for the initial set of six volumes, and details of the first five were given (the sixth was to be announced later), but McKerrow pointed out that, although the first two volumes would be issued in any case, he could not proceed further with the project unless he received the names of at least 150 subscribers. The first two books—editions of John Weever’s Epigrammes in the Oldest Cut and Newest Fashion, 1599, and of Greenes Newes both from Heauen and Hell, 1593 and Greenes Funeralls, 1594 (two texts in one volume)—were in subscribers’ hands by September 1911 (Add. MS. a. 460/2/4) and a notice of the proposed series appeared in Notes and Queries in November (Add. MS. a. 460/2/5), but the condition for its continuance was apparently not met, for no further volumes were issued. McKerrow’s account of subscriptions (Add. MS. a. 460/2/2) indicates—if it is complete—that orders for only sixty-five sets were received.
