Leigh Hunt letters

Leigh Hunt was a poet, journalist, and essayist who was influential among the Romantic poets, including Byron, Keats, and Shelley.  Special Collections has a small collection of Leigh Hunt's correspondence dating 1823-1959, with the bulk of the material falling between 1831 and 1861.  The collection contains letters to and from various correspondents, including Leigh Hunt's oldest son, Thornton. A large portion of the correspondence consists of transcribed letters, for which the originals are lacking.

These materials are in the process of being digitized.  We're sharing a few scans below; look for the rest in the MU Digital Library soon.
