Scope and content

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.
