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.
