Scope and Content

This series contains the early stages of White’s writings. There are handwritten literary manuscripts and printed galleys--a vital editing step before actual publication--with annotations in the margins. There are also bound volumes that White wrote out by hand, such as the Truths from Shakespeare, which is made up of Shakespeare quote “snippets” White particularly liked.
