Autograph Letters and Manuscripts from the William Luther Lewis Collection

This online exhibit features autograph letters and manuscripts from the William Luther Lewis Collection, representing over three hundred principal authors of English and American literature. The collection is composed of approximately fifteen hundred titles, nearly nine hundred of which are first editions. Almost all of the volumes are in uniquely fine condition. Assembled in the 1930s and 1940s by William Luther Lewis, the materials range in date from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. By and large, however, the collection consists of works written by the outstanding figures of the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. It is housed in the library’s Special Collections area on the second floor.
