In addition to its unparalleled collection of materials relating to the Victorian poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the Armstrong Browning Library houses a large collection of Victorian letters and manuscripts connected to other prominent and lesser known British and American figures. The collection includes letters and manuscripts from many notable nineteenth-century authors such as Charles Dickens, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas Carlyle, John Henry Newman, George MacDonald, and John Ruskin. The collection also includes letters and manuscripts from political figures, religious leaders, scientists, artists, art collectors, and explorers. The letters and manuscripts in this growing collection, which currently contains over 3,000 items, can be browsed and searched by date, author, keyword, or first line of text.
