Description: Furnivall (F.J.) Thirty one autograph letters and cards signed, (many with initials) to Constance Belliss, 43pp., 8vo, 1900-1907, the majority discussing collations and variant readings in the Chaucer manuscripts, others giving advice for Laurence Hodson's preparations for his talk on the Kelmscott Chaucer [see lot 49], mentioning the Strang frieze "I call [it] 'Hodson's Folly'. We're all mad in one point. What's your speciality?"; Morris's writings, "I havn't read the Wolfings, but can well believe that a boy will enjoy all M's northern stories. Only if you fill Will's head with 'em, he'll want to go in for adventures instead of brewing", encouraging Hodson to give a lecture on Alphonse Legros; another enclosing a glowing reference for her to use when looking for work as a librarian and secretary, folded, two with envelopes, a few with related material. ***Constance Belliss was the cousin of Laurence Hodson's wife Mary, working for him as a secretary and librarian, and organiser with John Masefield of the 1902 Wolverhampton exhibition..
