  • Scope and Content
    The collection consists chiefly of correspondence, literary works, and artwork. There are eleven letters, most written by W.B. Yeats to Edwin John Ellis (c. 1890-1910) or to Mrs Ellis (c. 1922). There are manuscript items in both Ellis' and Yeats' hands relating to their edition of the works of William Blake, along with Xerox copies of further Yeats manuscript material on Blake. Six manuscript items and one typescript are works by Ellis. In addition there are approximately 150 drawings and sketches by Ellis, chiefly in pencil, ink or watercolour. Sundry papers include a copy of the obituary address given by Daniel Greiner at Ellis' grave, with an English translation.
