Biographical history

Graham Pollard was born in Putney on 7 March 1903, the son of A.F. Pollard, historian, and first director of the Institute of Historical Research, and of Catherine Susannah Lucy, daughter of William Lucy, director of the Oxford iron-working company of that name. From Willington Preparatory School, Putney, Pollard went to Shrewsbury School (1916-20), where his housemaster was J.B. Oldham, the school librarian. He read history of Oxford, winning a scholarship to Jesus College in 1921, and became a partner in Birrell & Garnett in 1924, when he went down from Oxford. An appreciable part of this collection of letters and working papers belongs to the Birrell & Garnett period.

In 1934 Pollard, with John Carter, published An enquiry into the nature of certain nineteenth century pamphlets. Working papers for this are at the University of Texas. Notes for the catalogue of books at Waddesdon Manor compiled by him are at Waddesdon. All the other working papers that have survived are in this collection. In the 1930s Pollard was on the editorial board of Oxford Books on Bibliography, and there is a lively correspondence with John Johnson, Printer to the University, who was general editor of the series. Another notable sequence of letters was exchanged with Stanley Morison. After a short tenure of the special lectureship in the history of newspapers at the University of London, which was curtailed by the war, Pollard served in the Board of Trade from 1942 to 1959. Bibliographical publications were few during this period, but correspondence continued, and the collection includes many carbon copies of Pollard's own letters. After his retirement from the Board of Trade he resumed work on many bibliographical projects, including the medieval book trade in Oxford, on which he published comparatively little, but for which he accumulated a great deal of material.

Scope and Content

The Pollard papers fall into two groups: records of Birrell & Garnett Ltd., antiquarian and new booksellers, and bibliographical working papers and personal correspondence of Henry Graham Pollard. There is inevitably some overlap in the subject matter of the papers in the two.

The papers of Birrell & Garnett Ltd. in the collection include the firm's catalogues, orders for books, and files of correspondence, mainly 1927-39. The account books were given to the British Library by Jane Norton's executors, and are now Add. MSS. 52862-52870.

This catalogue is an edited version of a more detailed description compiled by Esther Potter. A subject index prepared to accompany that description, photocopied from Ms. Potter's cards is now MS. Pollard 425. The Library is most grateful to her for the many months she has devoted to the arrangement and cataloguing of these papers.

Acquisition

The papers were given, together with a collection of photographs of medieval manuscripts (now MS. Facs. c. 108), by the administrators of Pollard's estate, Dr. D.E. Butler and Mrs. C.E. Colvin, in 1987

Related Material

A collection of 18th- and 19th-century autograph letters, mainly literary (now MS. Eng. lett. c. 461) was bought by the Bodleian Library from Pollard's estate in 1979.

Twelve boxes of Pollard's papers relating to the Communist Party of Great Britain were given by Pollard to John Johnson, probably in the 1930s, and are now part of the John Johnson collection of Printed Ephemera in the Bodleian.

The account books of Birrell amp; Garnett were given to the British Library by Jane Norton's executors (Add. MSS. 52862-70).

Biographical/Historical

Birrell & Garnett was founded in 1920 by Francis Birrell (1889-1935) and David Garnett (1892-1981). In 1922 Ralph Wright became a partner. Pollard bought Garnett's share in the summer of 1924. In 1927 Jane Norton (1893-1962), the bibliographer of Gibbon, bought the shares of Birrell and Wright, and in July 1927 the firm was reorganized as a limited company, with Jane Norton and Graham Pollard as directors, and Frances Marshall (later Frances Partridge) as secretary. The company went into voluntary liquidation in March 1939. The new books department was sold to Bernard Quaritch Ltd. Negotiations for the purchase of the goodwill of the antiquarian business by the Dutch bookseller, Menno Hertzberger, were interrupted by the German invasion of Holland.


A.1   Catalogues of Birrell & Garnett, as issued 1920-1934

Scope and Content

There were three series of catalogues. The small octavo catalogues were general; in the list below, catalogues are small octavo unless otherwise stated. More important books went into a more lavishly printed demy octavo series. This began with five catalogues, each covering a period of English literature from the Elizabethan to the middle of the nineteenth century, and included three catalogues of early newspapers. The quarto catalogues were designed as works of scholarship on specialised subjects, but the only one to be issued was catalogue [21], the catalogue of type specimens. Writing books described in a separate quarto catalogue were sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and to Philip Hofer, before the catalogue was printed. The typescript catalogue is MS. Pollard 85. A catalogue of catalogues was also planned for the quarto series. Some of the material for it is described in The distribution of books by catalogue (1965), pp. xvii-xviii; some of the cards for it are reproduced in MS. Pollard 151, and a few notes are in MS. Pollard 290, fols. 1-3. Three cover designs by Duncan Grant were used in the small octavo series. Catalogues 2-4 are missing from this series, but are in the Bodleian's own collection - [pr. bk.] 2593 d. 27. Catalogue 36 was misnumbered 37, and two different catalogues were numbered 44. The first catalogue with which Pollard was concerned was no. 9.

A.5   Correspondence with customers 1927-1941

Scope and Content

The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by customer, and runs from 1924 to 1942 (mainly 1927-39). Although the letters are mainly about buying and selling books, some of the correspondence develops into discussion of bibliographical and literary topics; carbon copies of out-letters are included.
