This website provides transcriptions of
letters written to Henry James. These
letters, from the Houghton
Library at Harvard, have never been published before
and will probably never be available in book form.
This is not a commercial site. Its primary purpose is to provide graduate students and scholars of American and English literature from around the world with a reliable and convenient alternative to using the original manuscripts. All
letters have been carefully transcribed according to
theories of scholarly editing.
This site serves as a complement to the forthcoming
and in-progress publication of The Complete Letters
of Henry James, 1855-1872, edited by Pierre A. Walker and Greg W. Zacharias.
