Items removed from books

Scope and Content

Newspaper cuttings, cards, letters etc. found inside the books compromising Alison Uttley's personal library. The items usually have some relation to the book from which they were removed, such as letters from the author, or reviews. They are too numerous to list in detail, and have instead been noted on the list of books appended to the hard copy of this catalogue. There are some fascinating items, and the class is useful, if only because they illustrate the workings of Alison Uttley's mind so exactly!

Among these items are various items of note, including more letters from C.F. Tunnicliffe, and also from Eleanor Farjeon, Ruth Pitter, Leonard Clark, and Lawrence Whistler; various photographs, some beautiful paintings of flowers, and a letter from Alison Uttley's husband James during the First World War.
