Scope and content

FRAZ/26 is the fifth and sixth of eight boxes of papers relating to J. G. Frazer's writings, arranged according to the date of the publication or creation of the works, dating from 1884 to 1938 (FRAZ/22-27).

FRAZ/26 consists of 2 boxes of papers relating to J. G. Frazer's works written from 1932 to 1938, arranged in chronological order of appearance. These years are just after Frazer's eye troubles began in earnest, and appear to show a shift from writing drafts in his own hand to dictation to a secretary at the end of 1934. Lady Frazer's work as business manager continues to be evident, and letters are addressed mainly to her.

There are manuscript drafts in J.G.F’s hand of two different works: his obituary of his friend, Canon John Roscoe (Item 57); and the 1932 Zaharoff Lecture, entitled 'Condorcet on the Progress of the Human Mind' (Items 78-79). A secretary to J.G.F. is likely the hand writing the prefaces to 'Creation and Evolution in Primitive Cosmogonies' (Items 97-98) and 'Etudes d'anthropologie biblique' (Item 104).
