Cowperiana scrapbooks, 1731-1853.

The collection contains a broad-spectrum of printed and ms. material about people and places related (sometimes tangentially in the extreme) to the life and works of Cowper. Many images accompanied by biographical and explanatory text in both letter press and in ms. hand. Much of the letter press has been clipped from Robert Southey's edition of The works of William Cowper. In addition to numerous engraving and etchings, the collection also contains a number of original drawings and watercolors (some by James H. Hurdis?), many depicting the town of Olney and environs in Buckinghamshire. The ms. material includes, geneal. tables, accounting ledgers of Ashley Cowper, an index to Southey's edition of Cowper's works, various signatures (including George IV's), military orders signed by Louis XVI, and several letters, some random, many concerning the obtainment of items to form the collection.

5 v. : ill., facsims., geneal. tables, maps, plans, ports. ; 43 cm.
