Scope and Content

This series consists of correspondence relating to CEM's literary career, including letters to CEM from various writers, critics, artists, and colleagues about his books and letters from his literary agents and publishers. Also included are 4 letters written by CEM.

All letters are handwritten unless stated otherwise.


All bundles of correspondence have been left in the original order in which they arrived at the library. The bundles have been listed in chronological order of their predominant dates. Thus CEM/2/2/5 and CEM/2/2/8 have been listed according to the date of the majority of the material, despite containing 1 or 2 pieces from a much earlier date.
