Scope and Content

Professional correspondence, primarily with publishing companies, relating to Barbara Leonie Picard's published works. The correspondence mainly dates from the 1980s onwards, although some letters are earlier, and mainly relates to new editions of Picard's published works and to rights in her existing works. The sub-series includes files of correspondence from Janus Publishing Company; Kaye & Ward and its successor, Heinemann; Oxford University Press; and a file of miscellaneous letters, not from publishing companies but relating directly to Picard's published work.

Arrangement

Letters from publishing companies are sorted into files by company, with files arranged in alphabetical order by company name. The file of miscellaneous correspondence appears at the end of the sub-series. This roughly reflects the system of arrangement at the time of deposit, although some sorting has been done by the archivist to ensure consistency.
