Description

Stephen Clarke, Horace Walpole and W.S. Lewis: A Collector Revealed

W.S. (‘Lefty’) Lewis combined the roles of obsessional collector and scholarly editor of Horace Walpole. This lecture, which follows the exhibition ‘Rescuing Horace Walpole: the Achievement of W.S. Lewis’ at the Lewis Walpole Library, Yale University, considers issues of personality, methods and circumstances that combined to create one of the great single-author collections of the twentieth century, with exceptionally rich supporting material.


This meeting will take place online via Zoom.


The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session and virtual socialising.
