Jowett Papers - Group I Class D

I D consists of the contents of Faber's 'Box D'. Like I C, it is a very miscellaneous collection of material from BJ's own papers, some of which was sorted by Abbott, Campbell or others, as well as material connected with the posthumous edition of BJ's sermons and the collection of evidence for A & C. This material from the Abbott and Campbell papers is placed before BJ's own material, and the whole class is arranged as follows:

  • D1-D5 - Material connected with the edition of BJ's Sermons
  • D6-D9 - Other material connected with posthumous work on BJ
  • D10-D28 - General note
  • D29-D31 - General Note
  • D32-D35 - Material connected with College and University work
  • D36-D37 - Original texts of BJ's speeches
  • D38-9 - Miscellaneous material collected after BJ's death
  • D40-D42 - Printed and other material sent to BJ
  • D43-D45 - Notes and Lectures on Plato
  • D46 - Notes on Aristotle
  • D47-D51 - Notes on modern philosophy and theology
  • D52-D55 -  Notes for sermons in BJ's hand
  • D56-D141 - Notes connected with BJ's work on St. Paul

 

D1-D5 - Material connected with the edition of BJ's Sermons

After BJ's death, his old pupil the Very Rev. W.H. Fremantle, with Evelyn Abbott's help, prepared a collected edition of BJ's sermons which was published in 1895. D1-5 are connected with work on this.

D1

Medium size NB (200 by 170mm), red marbled paper cover, with red leather spine and corners, no title or label. 132 leaves*, many blank, with several loose leaves inserted. Mostly ink, some pencil and blue crayon. Pages lined. The NB seems to be in Evelyn Abbott's hand, except for fols.22-4, which are in an unknown one. The NB is dated to 1894 on fol.20, and to 1895 on fol.25, and was almost certainly used by Abbott for editing the sermons, and (later) for A & C.

  • [Loose leaf fcA inserted inside front cover: receipt from an unknown writer for taking from Abbott a box of c.100 of BJ's sermons, 3 Ship Street Oxford, 1 Feb 1894, ALS]

On the reverse of all these leaves is an account of the Battle of Delium (423 bc) in an unknown hand (ink), with corrections in Evelyn Abbott's hand (pencil)]

D2

  • MS copy of the article, in an unknown hand, concerning a sermon by BJ. Copy undated, but presumably connected with the edition of BJ's sermons. [4 leaves, numbered 6-9 (ink)]

D4

Collection of TS copies of BJ's sermons, each one sewn or tagged separately. Some bear corrections or numbers, some in Evelyn Abbott's hand, the rest in unknown ones. These copies were made after BJ's death, in connection with the edition of his sermons. All the leaves are foolscap.

D6-D9 - Other material connected with posthumous work on BJ

D6

Manilla envelope with stamp preserved, addressed to Evelyn Abbott, postmarked Dec 13 1894. Its contents are almost certainly connected with work on A & C.

  • [1] J. Rowley to Evelyn Abbott, Leigh Woods, Clifton, Bristol, 12 Dec 1894, ALS [1 leaf (ink)]. Rowley encloses reports of BJ's speech at the second Public Meeting of the British Association, taken from various local papers c.Sep. 1875.
  • [2] [Extract of the minutes of the meeting of the British Association for 1 Sep 1875, reporting a speech from BJ on the work of the Association. In Rowley's hand; 1 leaf (pencil)]
  • [3] [Extract from the Mercury of Saturday, 4 September 1875, recording the same speech of BJ. In Rowley's hand; 1 leaf (pencil)]

D7

13 foolscap leaves held together with a brass tag, all in an unknown hand. The copy is undated, but was probably created as part of the work on A & C.

  • The front leaf is titled Bristol University College - Speeches by the late Professor Jowett in 1874 and 1875. June 1874, and the rest of the leaves consist of an MS copy of an an extract from the Western Daily Press for 12 Jun 1874, reporting on a meeting for the purpose of creating a college at Bristol, concentrating on BJ's speeches. [13 leaves (ink)]

D8

3 foolscap leaves folded together, inscribed (in an unknown hand) B7 1884 Balliol dinner to the Speaker no good at all [blue crayon, except for words in bold, which are in pencil]. The hand, and the method of inscribing, is identical with that used for the material in I C16, and therefore it seems likely that the inscription was made after BJ's death. The comment on its quality might indicate a decision not to include it in any of BJ's posthumous publications.

  • Report (in an unknown hand) of a dinner held in honour of the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Arthur Peel (June 28 1884), with a list of notables present and reports of the speeches [all names indexed].

D9

  • TS of a lecture (or essay or sermon?) on Pascal (almost certainly typed after BJ's death). The front page bears Philip Lyttleton Gell's signature. The TS is corrected in an unknown hand. There is no indication of the date of the original. Perhaps connected with Gell's edition of BJ's secular works Essays on Men and Manners (see II O)? 17 foolscap leaves.

D10-D28 - General note

The following series of little NB have all been given labels in Evelyn Abbott's hand in ink, with numbers in blue crayon that may also be by him. It is not clear when these numbers were assigned, but it seems likely that this was done after BJ's death. There are no NB here numbered 1-6, 8-10, 12 or 14. However, I C1-C11 fill in these gaps. Therefore I C1-C11 and D10-D28 almost certainly belong to the same series, and it is unfortunate that they have been split up.

In the list which follows, reference to the hand which wrote the labels on the NB does not include accounts of the numbers. Up to D25, they are all in blue crayon. For D26-D28, they are in ink.

D10

Small NB (120 by 80mm), black leather cover with pattern of striped lines, labelled [in Evelyn Abbott's hand?] 1888 Plato 7. 68 leaves, many blank. Pages lined. Pencil.

The inside front cover is dated Christmas 1888; however, a date of Sunday Aug 3 is given on fol.48, which would only suit 1890.

  • Insertion of essays [titles only: for BJ's translation of Plato?] 1-2
  • Immortality of the soul [notes] 3-7
  • Appearance of a death-bed [jotting only] 7v

  • [Jottings on Plato (almost illegible)] 35v
  • Aug 3 [title only] 47

D11

Small NB (120 by 80mm), red leather cover, labelled [in Evelyn Abbott's hand?] Paul 11 (label slightly torn). 69 leaves, several blank. Pages lined. Pencil.

The NB is undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1880s.

  • [List of headings: from Hermann Paul's book on linguistics?] 1
  • Second thoughts on Paul [on linguistics - heavily corrected notes] 1v-32
  • [fols.32v-69 are written with the NB inverted, and are listed in reverse order]

D12

[As most of this NB is written inverted, the label could with more justification have been put on the other cover]

The NB is undated, but the funeral sermon on fols.1-1v could only have been written in 1892, and the list of names in the inside front cover would suit a time when BJ was sending complimentary copies of the latest edition of his Plato in the same year. BJ's hand would support such a date.

  • Plato to be sent [list of names, including Swinburne's (indexed), to whom BJ intended to send complimentary copies of his Plato in 1892] 1
  • JGL [James Gilby Lonsdale (who died in 1892)] His teaching power [notes (for a sermon?) in Martha Knight's hand] 1-1v

  • Southey's Life [of Wesley: notes lightly crossed out] 31-30

  • Sermon on Wesley [more notes] 33v-34
  • End of sermon [on Wesley: notes] 34v-36

  • No.6 [apparently comments on a Greek prose BJ was marking, perhaps for the Gaisford Prize?] 38-37v
  • No.18 [apparently comments on a Greek prose BJ was marking, perhaps for the Gaisford Prize?] 37
  • [Quotation from Dr. Johnson] 38v
  • [Notes on (?) John Wesley] 39
  • [fols.40v-48 and 55-69 are written with the NB inverted and listed in reverse order]

  • Wesley [notes] 57-55
  • [Notes on language] 48-44v
  • [Marks for Greek Proses, with occasional comments. Only distingushed by number, without any names being given. It seems likely that these too are proses for the Gaisford Prize] 43v-40v

D13

Small NB (110 by 70mm), purple-black cloth cover (slightly damaged), labelled [in Evelyn Abbott's hand?] Notes for sermon on Liberality. Ways of doing good [15]. 50 leaves, many blank. Pages lined. Pencil, with a few words in ink.

The NB is undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1880s-1890s.

The NB is undated, but the contents suggest 1883, and BJ's hand would support this.

  • [List of sermon titles for Oct.14, Nov.11 and Jan.7] 1
  • The liberal man desireth liberal things and by liberal things he shall stand [notes for a sermon] 1-28
  • [Heavily corrected drafts for a Latin Speech. Its occasion is unclear: it seems to be on the University (perhaps connected with BJ's duties as Vice-Chancellor?), with allusions to Church matters and to the recent deaths of A.C. Tait and H.J.S. Smith] 43-45 & 47v-66
  • [Draft speech for a toast to R.R.W. Lingen] 67-8

The content of the NB dates it to 1883.

  • Abbott (if it was he) dated this NB to 1884, and there is nothing to contradict this.

The label has been placed on the wrong cover, as the text begins from the other end. The foliation was therefore begun from here. Almost all the pages have come loose.

  • Aug 12 [jotting only on religion] 20v

The NB can be dated by an entry on p.136, which is dated Aug 1 Tues. That only happened in 1865, 1871, 1876, 1882 and 1893. Some people mentioned here died in 1882, and BJ's hand would suit the 1870s, so that 1871 or 1876 seem the likeliest dates.

D29-D31 - General Note

One of the first attempts to sort out BJ's papers involved assigning them letters of the alphabet. The General Note to I H85-91 explains the system in more detail, and how it was replaced. D29-31, like H86-91, are members of this series which never received new references, and are therefore listed together. All the labels are on the spine in an unknown hand.

D29

Small NB (75 by 130mm), maroon leather cover, with clasp, labelled E Early [illegible]. 80 leaves*, many blank. Pages unlined. Pencil.

D30

Small NB (75 by 130mm), black morocco spine with metal clasp, labelled F. The original pencil is still there. Only fols.1-26* used. Pages lined. Pencil.

The NB can be dated by the entry on p.1, which is for Sunday 23 Jan. That only happened in 1859, 1864, 1876, 1881 and 1887. BJ's hand suits the 1870s or 1880s best.

D33

Small NB (180 by 115mm), black leather cover, with gold lines on cover and spine, no title or label. The front cover is slightly discoloured. 91 leaves. Pages lined. Almost all ink. Most of the NB is not in BJ's hand.

This NB is identical in format to I C12-13 (see the General Note there for details of this). As with those books, this one consists entirely of exam marks for undergraduates, and here too only the names of Balliol undergraduates have been indexed.

The NB is dated by the Balliol undergraduates it records to c.1850.

  • [List of names of undergraduates; no college named] 2
  • [Marks for an exam held c.1850. Except for fol.3, which is all in BJ's hand, an unknown hand has written down the names of the undergraduates in alphabetical order, and the papers which they sat, and BJ has filled in the marks (although many entries remain blank. Undergraduates are recorded from Balliol, Brasenose, Christ Church, Corpus Christi, Exeter, Lincoln, Magdalen Hall, New Inn Hall, Oriel, Pembroke, Queen's, St. Edmund Hall, St. John's, St. Mary Hall, Trinity, University, Wadham and Worcester, although several names are not assigned colleges. The Balliol undergraduate matriculated in 1846/7] 3-39v
  • [Marks for an exam held c.1850. The pages are set up in the same fashion, in the same unknown hand.

  • [Lists of undergraduates, all in BJ's hand, with letters beside them (perhaps to indicate which papers they sat?), no colleges given] 89-91

D34

Envelope inscribed in Martha Knight's hand (ink) Questions respecting lectures, which contains slips with questions presented to BJ at lectures by undergraduates, separated into 3 bundles, each held by a brass tag, with 1 loose leaf. Each one has an answer in BJ's hand. Undergraduates normally gave in questions on individual leaves, but sometimes two or three combined to ask one question. Such occasions are indicated below. There are several such collections of questions throughout the Jowett Papers, at I B15-17, II A3 and II I6. All the questions were written in ink, and all BJ's answers in pencil.

The questions can be dated to 1892 or 1893, because the Balliol undergraduates who asked them all matriculated in 1891.

  • [1] L.A. T[oke], A.W Kiddle, H. Williamson, H. Sidebotham, A.W. Pickard Cambridge & W.H.V. Reade [joint question], T. Walrond, F.C.N. Hicks & G.R. Hill [joint question], and H.W.C. Davis [8 leaves].
  • [2] Anon, A.W. Kiddle, Anon [twice], H.W.C. Davis, H. Sidebotham, H. Williamson, Anon, A.W. Pickard Cambridge & F.C.N. Hicks & W.H.V. Reade [joint question], Anon and W. Grahame [11 leaves].
  • [3] H. Sidebotham & H.W.C. Davis [joint question], W. Grahame, A.W. Pickard Cambridge & W.H.V. Reade & F.C.N. Hicks [joint question], H. Willliamson, and A.W. Pickard Cambridge & F.C.N. Hicks [joint question] [5 leaves].
  • [4] H.W.C. Davis & H. Sidebotham & L.A. Toke [joint question] [1 leaf].

D35

  • 1 leaf (quarto) containing 18 questions concerning university reform. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1870s.

D36-D37 - Original texts of BJ's speeches

Copies of other speeches used for A & C are to be found at D6-8.

D36

  • White envelope labelled in Matthew Knight's hand (ink) Minutes of a speech and possibly in BJ's hand (pencil) made to London Schoolmasters in Ch. Ch. Hall.
  • Unfinished draft(?) of a speech. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1880s. [1 leaf (pencil)]

D37

Notes of speeches by BJ [originally in an envelope inscribed by EVQ Jowett Speeches at College 1888-1893].

  • [1] Copy of a speech made at Balliol in 1888, in Frank Fletcher's hand. The occasion may be connected with Lord Lansdowne's appointment as Viceroy of India, and BJ uses it to reminisce about famous Balliol men living and dead (names indexed) [2 small leaves (ink)].
  • [2] Notes, in BJ's hand, for a speech given at Balliol in 1893. An unknown hand (the same as that on I C16 and D8) has added B7 in blue crayon. Occasion unclear, but BJ discusses recent college news, including new buildings, with some reminiscences of Balliol men (indexed) [1 small leaf (ink)].

D38-9 - Miscellaneous material collected after BJ's death

This material all derives from BJ's own papers, but seems to have been sorted, or at least assembled after his death.

D38

Large spine file (285 by 255mm), no title or label. The spine inside holds threads in which documents may be inserted, but none have been. Instead, there are several loose documents inside, probably put in during the composition of A & C.

  • [1] TS (13 leaves) of a sermon by BJ on Romans XII 10, with a note (in Evelyn Abbott's hand?) that it was preached at Llangollen in September 1880 and at Balliol January 21 1877 and May 1882]

  • [16] Lectures in History [A list of lecture series (with their titles and the times when they are to be given) on ancient and modern history, with the names of the Balliol fellows (who are indexed) who will give them. Courses are given for the whole of an academic year, which seems to be 1867/8, because of a reference to Lent Term 1868 at the bottom of the page. 1 leaf (ink)]
  • [17] Former lectures [lecture titles on general philosophy. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1870s-1880s. 1 leaf (ink)]
  • [18] [Fragment of a précis of Republic III 408. It is similar in layout to those précis which BJ put in his translations of Plato, but differs substantially in content from the printed versions. It could therefore be a fragment of a first draft for these. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1860s. 1 leaf (ink one side, pencil the other)]
  • [19] [Fragment of a précis of Republic I 354, very similar to 18 above, and therefore probably of similar origins. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1860s. 1 leaf (ink)]

D39

Manilla envelope, with a printed inscription The Controller - University Press, Oxford (now crossed out, and Emendations written above it in an unknown hand). The age of the envelope, and the addressee make it likely that this envelope is linked with P.L. Gell, and that its contents came into his hands after BJ's death. At some stage, he probably put them in this envelope, and they then made their way back to the Jowett papers.

  • [1] Lexicographers and Scholiasts [lecture notes? Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1880s-1890s; 2 leaves (pencil)]
  • [2] [Lecture notes (?) on Emendation. Undated, but BJ's hand suggests the 1880s-1890s; 6 leaves (pencil)]
  • [3] [Extracts from Thucydides, with suggested emendations. The text is in an unknown hand, but there are a few comments in BJ's. Undated and undatable; 1 leaf (ink for the text, pencil for the corrections)]

D40-D42 - Printed and other material sent to BJ

All these items seem to have been sent to BJ, but somehow escaped destruction after his death.

D40

Maroon leather wallet (170 by 120mm). Contains:

  • [1] [Extract (in an unknown hand) from the will of the late Bilton Josephus Wilson, Esq., dated 23 January 1865, which bequeathed land to BJ. On the same leaf is a letter from Matthew Gill (?) to BJ, Knaresborough, 24 Jan 1866, ALS (different from the hand that wrote the will extract), in which the bequest is explained to BJ. 1 leaf (ink)]

D42

  • [1] Letter from person with an illegible signature to BJ, Glasgow, 11 Dec 1884, text of letter possibly written by a secretary [1 leaf (ink)]. BJ is sent some poems by the writer, who hopes BJ will like them [originally found with 2 in a modern envelope].

One leaf has a poem entitled "The Sisters," by Gainsborough (dated 17 Nov 1884), another a poem entitled The Snowdrop (dated 15 Jan 1883) and there are two copies of a little pamphlet with two untitled poems, the second of which is dated 20 Jun 1880.

D43-D45 - Notes and Lectures on Plato

D43

Envelope inscribed [in Matthew Knight's hand (ink)] Memoranda Plato, containing 15 leaves (small). Ink.

  • [3] [Notes on the Phaedrus; 1 leaf]

D45

A collection of small leaves divided by brass tags into 13 bundles with a few loose pages. The layout of each group of pages is identical, and their subject matter similar. Comments on 'last lecture' in several of them show that these are notes for a complete series of lectures on Plato. Pencil.

The group can be dated to 1891, because one of the leaves in bundle [9] is written on the back of a discarded letter dated that year.

  • [2] No.2 - Last lecture [Recapitulation of the previous lecture. The new lecture is titled] Introduction to the Republic [3 leaves]

D47

Quarto NB, brown cloth cover with diamond patterns, no title or label. Only fol.1-40 (and inside back cover) used, with some loose leaves inserted. Pages unlined. Pencil and ink.

Quarto NB, green marbled paper cover, with black morocco leather spine and corners, no title or label. It is now in very poor condition: the front cover has lost all its paper covering, the spine is breaking, and the leather corners are very frayed. 90 leaves, some blank. Pages lined. Pencil. A substantial amount of this NB is in an unknown hand.

The NB is undated, but the content and BJ's hand suggest c.1845-9.

Unlike the other Hegel NB's, on fol.12v, a new unknown hand takes over, in mid-word. Although BJ was working on this translation with Frederick Temple, this hand is probably not Temple's, as his own Hegel notebook (Temple Papers F54C) shows so different a hand] 3-20
  • [Several pages have been cut away after fol.17 and are now missing]
  • [Translation of sections 183-238 of Hegel's Encyclopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften im Grundrisse (Section 183 follows straight on after the end of section 171, without explanation for omitting the intervening sections).

D56-D141 - Notes connected with BJ's work on St. Paul

BJ's commentary on the Epistles of St. Paul to the Thessalonians, Galatians, and the Romans is unusual among his published work in having so large a body of primary work on it preserved. All the following items, with a few exceptions (e.g. D61), consist of notes on theologians he was reading, or very early draft commentaries on which he was working. Sometimes phrases from these drafts can be seen in the final version, but this is very rare. There are no traces of the final version of the commentary.

Almost all these items are undated; however BJ's hand in all of then suggests the late 1840s-early 1850s.

There are some notes here on Paul's Epistles to the Corinthians. A.P. Stanley was working on these simultaneously, and this suggests that BJ and he examined each other's work carefully.
