Scope and Content
Canelluñ Collection number: CC5504
This refers to the arrangement of the papers in Robert Graves’ study before they were transferred to the College.
It is unclear why this correspondence remained at Deyá: in the 1970s Beryl Graves returned any papers she found that Riding had left behind at Canelluñ in 1936. The material arrived filed in a bundle of papers concerning Riding pre-1951 [WG ref CC0450 and CC0451] but placed here during cataloguing as the majority of the other papers completed other existing correspondence series.
