The Morris L. Parrish Collection of Victorian Novelists, consisting of the
library of books, manuscripts, photographs, artwork, and ephemera as collected by
Morris Longstreth Parrish, Class of 1888, came to Princeton University in 1944 as a
bequest. This finding aid focuses on Parrish's original collection of manuscripts,
both bound and unbound, and includes his correspondence (related to his collecting
activities) and letters both to and from many of the Victorian authors, as well as
the manuscript and related (non-book) items given to and/or acquired for the
collection by the Princeton University Library in subsequent years.
