Provenance

Acquired from The Christensen Fund, November 1997.

Custodial History

At the time of Isabel Burton’s death in 1896, the main part of Richard Burton’s surviving manuscripts and library were deposited at the Central Library, Kensington; in 1955, the Royal Borough of Kensington gave the library to the Royal Anthropological Institute for safe-keeping. In 1986, The Christensen Fund acquired the entire library from the R.A.I., and deposited it at the Huntington Library, until November 1997, when The Christensen Fund formally gave the manuscripts and 2,500-volume library to the Huntington Library (Acc. No. 1861).

Cataloging Decisions

1. As noted in the acquisition information at the beginning of this finding aid this material has been owned by Burton, as well as several institutions over the years. Therefore, the manuscripts contain autograph notes by Burton, as well as autograph annotations by various catalogers, including pencilled page numbers and the “Kensington Public Libraries” stamp on many of the pages. The notes by Burton are noted on the folders and in the finding aid only if substantive.
2. Burton was in the habit of heavily annotating his printed books as well as inserting all manner of extra material into the books in his library; this material included letters, clippings, articles and other printed matter. It was decided not to remove any of this material from the books but include detailed information in the electronic record for each book. The Burton Library is part of the Rare Books Department; please consult the Huntington Library Online Catalogue for information about this material and contact the Rare Books Department for paging information or any questions about this material.
3. A small number of letters were removed from the manuscripts and cataloged in Correspondence; the original location of these letters were noted on the folders and in the finding aid.
4. There are references to swords, sword-play and fencing throughout the entire collection; it was decided that, unless it was a substantive reference, it would not be noted as a subject on the folders or in the finding aid.
