Scope and content
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.
