Jonathan Cape's correspondence of 1929 to 1930 deals with 'Goodbye to All That', including the comments and concerns of Edward Marsh, Siegfried Sassoon, A.P. Graves and Charles Graves. Correspondence from 1942 to 1947 concerns, inter alia, 'The Reader Over Your Shoulder', the poetry of James Reeves, T.E. Lawrence and suggestions for further books by Graves. Later correspondence is desultory, but includes some reminiscences of tin hats of the first world war by G. Wren Howard. The series includes a bundle of royalty statements and other financial records for the period 1933 to 1935.
