Scope and Content

2 letters (one containing enclosures) from J.P. Lamb, Sheffield City Librarian: he returns a list compiled by Sixsmith of Carpenter-related items in his possession which do not appear in the printed bibliography [A Bibliography of Edward Carpenter (Sheffield City Libraries, 1949)], commenting that a number of the items are included in the sections described as 'various newspaper cuttings'. He includes a typed list of items which are not in the Sheffield collection and requests details of some books mentioned by Sixsmith. The second letter refers to Sixsmith's reply, and the Carpenter collection at Sheffield.

Dated at: Sheffield, Yorks.

The letters are typescript with signature. Sixsmith's list of his Carpenter items is in his own hand.
