Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Reynolds mss., 1912-1925, consist of positive photostats of letters, notes, and telegrams from George Bernard Shaw, 1856-1950, playwright, to Paul Revere Reynolds, 1864-1944, literary agent, who represented Shaw in the United States. They relate to the sale of publication rights and to the copyrighting in the United States of Shaw's writings.

Included also is a positive photostat of a portion of an undated letter, of which the beginning is lacking, from Sidney Webb, 1859-1947, economist, presumably to Paul Revere Reynolds. This letter carries a postscript by George Bernard Shaw.
