PENS TO PAPER: AUTOGRAPH LETTERS FROM THE KEATS-SHELLEY HOUSE

From Sir Walter Scott to President Theodore Roosevelt

Monday 28 November 2016 till Saturday 03 June 2017

Our latest temporary exhibition focuses on the material production of manuscripts from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries, a period of profound change in the art of letter-writing.

It will include a series of autograph letters by famous figures from British, American, Italian, and other European literature, culture, and politics, set against a backdrop of the changing industrial manufacture of paper and writing materials.

Entrance to the exhibition is included in the standard ticket to the museum.
