The Blessington papers : manuscript albums, 1818-1856

Chiefly comprised of correspondence addressed to the Irish-born writer and literary hostess Lady Blessington, the Blessington Papers were compiled by Richard Robert Madden for the composition of his Literary Life and Correspondence of the Countess of Blessington (1855). Notable correspondents among the several hundred include the English novelist Charles Dickens, the British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, and the English poet Walter Savage Landor. Also included are literary manuscripts; over forty are by Lady Blessingtion herself, while others are by submitters to the journals she edited. Much of the correspondence is published, both in Madden's life of Blessington, and in The Collection of Autograph Letters and Historical Documents Fomred by Alfred Morrison (2nd ser., 1882-1893), "The Blessington Papers" (1895).
