Bound volume containing the manuscripts, in the hand of Henry Reed, of a series of four public lectures he gave on English literature at the University of Pennsylvania, in College Hall, in March 1851; as well as the manuscript of a fifth lecture, on Tennyson's In Memoriam, which he gave shortly afterward, on 11 April 1851, but which apparently did not belong to the same series. The first three lectures were published after Reed's death, under the editorship of his brother William B. Reed, in: Lectures on English literature, from Chaucer to Tennyson (Philadelphia: Parry & McMillan, 1855), p. 309-411 (Lectures 10 to 12). They are: 1. Sacred English literature - tragic poetry - elegiac poetry (53 p.); 2. Literature of wit and humour (45 p.); and 3. The literature of letter-writing (32 p.). The fourth lecture in the series, given on 27 March 1851, concerning Wordsworth's poem The prelude (53 p. in the present manuscript), was omitted from the publication (an editorial note by William Reed made reference to it as not meriting reproduction; p. 309). Henry Reed's own title page for the Wordsworth lecture refers to it as the fourth and last of the course; and William Reed makes no mention of the fifth lecture in his notes to the publication. The venue for this fifth lecture is not noted. The manuscript contains notes in the hand of William Reed, comprising his editor's notes for the publication; some striking of passages within the text could also be in his hand (he wrote in black ink that appears virtually indistinguishable from the ink of the original writing by Henry Reed). Also, on the title pages of the second and third lectures clippings are pasted in, evidently from the publisher's advertisement for the 1855 publication, giving the content of the lecture (the same summaries appear in the printed book). Please note the following irregularities in the manuscript: 1) the conclusion of Lecture 1, three leaves numbered 51 to 53, is mistakenly bound at the back of the volume, presumably reflecting the use of the manuscript by William Reed for the publication; the text on those leaves was omitted from the published version of the lecture, and was replaced with a portion of the April lecture on Tennyson (i.e. Lecture 5 in the current manuscript, p. 20-34). 2) The manuscript of Lecture 3, ending with p. 32, is incomplete; the final 7 leaves of it, numbered 33 to 39, were mistakenly bound into a volume of miscellaneous fragments contained in the present collection (see Ms. Coll. 859, Box 9)
