The collection of D.H. Lawrence material contains two book-length manuscripts, the typescripts of SEA AND SARDINIA and THE BOY IN THE BUSH, both with manuscript corrections in Lawrence's hand. The typescript for THE BOY IN THE BUSH is probably the manuscript from which the book was printed. Other Lawrence manuscripts include "The Future of the Novel," and Chapter 13 of AARON'S ROD. Correspondents include Thomas Seltzer, Johathan Cape, Mrs. Nancy Henry, and Lady Ottoline Morrell. The collection also contains three watercolor drawings made by Lawrence for the jacket of the English edition of THE PLUMED SERPENT. Related printed material is also included. The John Steinbeck material is comprised of one letter, and proofs for thirteen of Steinbeck's works, including EAST OF EDEN and OF MICE AND MEN. Also included are a printed biography and photographs, and printed ephemera relating to many of Steinbeck's works. There are books inscribed to Alfred and Clarisse Hellman. This collection also contains some correspondence of Alfred Hellman and some letters collected by Dr. Morton Pepper.
