Richards, Grant, papers
Georgetown University Manuscripts
Georgetown University Library Booth Family Center for Special Collections
Manuscripts Collection, Georgetown University Library, Booth Family Center for Special Collections, Washington, D.C.
The Grant Richards papers consist of correspondence, (Boxes 1 to 3), manuscripts (Box 4 and throughout individual correspondence files), printed materials (Box 5), photos and clippings (Box 5 and 6), all relating to Richards and to the various authors he published. Of note is correspondence between Lady Gregory and himself regarding proposed biographies of Sir Hugh Lane, who died on the "Lusitania." The collection would be of interest in the study of any of the writers represented to the student of publishing history. The collection, however, is not entire as other portions of Richards' papers were previously sold at auction. Unless otherwise stated, all correspondence in the collection is either to, or from, Grant Richards, his secretary Mrs. Hemmerde, or Mrs. Grant Richards. The folders are arranged alphabetically and the contents are arranged chronologically within the folder. Note: Click on "External Documents" below for a link to the finding aid to the collection.
