William Godwin manuscript material : 338 items, 1778-1836

The William Godwin manuscript material in the Pforzheimer Collection consists of writings, correspondence, promissory notes, and various other documents. The writings include: complete holograph manuscript drafts of his works Fleetwood, Coludesley, and Lives of the Necromancers ; manuscript drafts of essays from his Enquirer ; and proof revisions written in volumes of his Political Justice and St. Leon. The bulk of the correspondence is dated 1795-1834 and mostly discusses Godwin's research, business matters and financial arrangements. Correspondents include: Mary Shelley, novelist (his daughter) ; Percy Bysshe Shelley, poet (his son-in-law) ; Aaron Burr, vice president of the United States ; Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet ; and over one hundred others. The promissory notes date from between 1804-1818, and are mostly to neighborhood merchants. Various other documents include library call slips, memos of agreement for business deals, and Godwin's last will and testament. A fair amount of The Pforzheimer Collection's Godwin manuscript material dated before 1822 is published, with extensive commentary, in Shelley and His Circle.
