Lectures and addresses on artistic subjects. The items in 45331, 45332 are arranged in the order given in the list (ff. 1-8), which is possibly in the hand of Jenny Morris, with notes by May Morris. Since not all of these listed items are in the present collection, the list numbers are quoted in square brackets after each article. The note (f. 1) 'Sent to W. R. Lethaby 15 Dec. 97' refers to an attempt by Sir Sydney Cockerell to get Lethaby to edit the art lectures (Briggs, op. cit., p. 5).
For detailed information about each lecture, please see the individual item.
