The Corrin Collection, given by Philip Corrin, once a member of the Trustees of The Honnold Library Society, and his wife, concentrates on 19th and 20th century authors and includes first, special or limited editions, some of them autographed, and with the original dust jackets; associated books and bibliographies; holograph letters and notes; and reprints or excerpts from scholarly or popular journals. Thomas Hardy items are found here, as is an extensive Rubaiyat Collection of 179 volumes containing many printings of the five Edward Fitzgerald versions, other English translations, and Persian, French and Swedish versions. There are also letters from Fitzgerald to his publisher, Quaritch.
Substantial collections of William Blake, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Andrew Lang, H. M. Tomlinson, John Milton, and Percy Bysshe Shelley are also available for study.
