DAVIDSON, JOHN (1857-1909)
The Library contains probably the largest and richest collection of Davidsoniana in existence. More than 70 volumes, chiefly first editions and variants, as well as reader's reports and newspaper clippings. All books have been catalogued and are accessible through records in the main catalog. For particulars refer to: J. Benjamin Townsend '40, "The Quest for John Davidson" in the Princeton University Library Chronicle XIII, 3 (Spring, 1952) pp. 123-142 [full text] .
The Manuscripts Division has a collection of material [(MSS) C0215] that contains over 350 letters by Davidson, most of which are addressed to Grant Richards, his friend and publisher. There are also nine autograph manuscripts in the collection, and proofs.
