Nineteenth Century Literary Society

"Nineteenth Century Literary Society makes available more than 1,400 items from the archive of the historic John Murray publishing company. The John Murray Archive houses the most complete archival collection of the famed poet, Lord Byron; his manuscripts and personal papers are a particular highlight of Nineteenth Century Literary Society, charting both literary triumph and personal scandal. Researchers can also trace the development of key Murray titles from initial discussions through to final drafts, browsing early advertisements and tracking sales successes – and failures – across financial papers and ledgers."
