Willa Cather: New Facts, New Glimpses, Revisions (Google eBook)
John Joseph Murphy, Merrill Maguire Skaggs
Associated University Presse, 2008 - Literary Criticism - 345 pages
This collection offers twenty new essays based on original research, by practiced scholars, in the Drew University Cather Collection. The volume supplies additionally a reader-friendly Finding Aid for the collection. The first component of that archive was the private collection of original manuscripts and first editions (some novels had several different first editions) once owned by Frederick B. Adams of the J. P. Morgan Library. To these rich materials were added the Finn and Barbara Caspersen private collection, the Sir Yehudi Menuhin private collection (including birthday-gift books), the Earl and Achsah Brewster private collection (including family letters about "Aunt Willa"), a typescript edition of Sapphira and the Slave Girl, and the Louise Guerber Burroughs collection of letters and clippings. Burroughs' diary and letters provides the only fully documented record of a Cather friendship. John J. Murphy is Professor Emeritus, Brigham Young University. Merrill M. Skaggs is Baldwin Professor of the Humanities at Drew University.
