Publication details: 
[1922.] No place. (Published in 'Poetry Review' (London) in July 1922.)

6pp, 12mo. Paginated [1]-6. Lightly aged and a bit grubby. Folded twice. On six leaves of paper, which Herford has made up by tearing in half the 4to leaves of one of his students' essays. Complete, and signed at the end 'C H Herford'. Written in a close hand, with numerous deletions and emendations. He begins by describing how Shelley met his death, and his final writing, before dismissing the suggestion that he committed suicide: 'we may dismiss the utterly uncalled for suggestion that his own hand lifted the veil'.

Typed Letter Signed ('H. V. A. Briscoe') from Professor H. Vincent A. Briscoe to [Thomas Lloyd] Humberstone, concerning a meeting of the Royal College of Science Association

H. Vincent A. Briscoe [Henry Vincent Aird Briscoe] (1888-1973), Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, Imperial College, London, 1938-1954 [Thomas Lloyd Humberstone (1876-1957), educationist]
Publication details: 
12 April 1954; on letterhead

12mo, 1 p. Good, on lightly-aged paper, with slight traces of mount on reverse. Regretting, given his 'keen interest' in the affairs of the Association and of the College, that Humberstone cannot attend a meeting of the RCS Association. The influence of the Association is 'probably considerable' regarding 'the development in progress', as many members are very active in the matter.
