About

cataloguers

Lauren Forbes and Stephen Rigden, the cataloguers on the John Murray Archive, are currently working on the vast store of letters written to John Murray, publishers. Sent by more than 16,000 writers over a period of 150 years the letters are of people from various backgrounds, including nobles, churchmen, politicians, archaeologists and domestic servants! From this wonderful diversity they choose items for the blog, a miscellany of interesting snippets concerning the House of Murray, its times and its correspondents.
