Gift of Hamilton Cottier.

More than 190 volumes, catalogued during the spring of 1985; records for them are in the Library's On-line catalogue. Covering not only de la Mare's poems, fiction, and criticism, the collection also includes a selection of books and articles about him. Several of the books are signed copies of limited editions. Hamilton Cottier's own annotated copy of the Walter de la Mare checklist, prepared in 1956 for the exhibition of the author's books and manuscripts at the National Book League in London, serves as a guide to the contents of the collection [(Ex) PR6007.E3 Z99167].
