AbstractThis group within the Lawrence Collections brings together series of copies of manuscripts relating to Lawrence, the originals of which are curated by other institutions.
Access ConditionsAccessible to all readers.
Admin HistoryThis is an artificial grouping of reprographic copies of manuscripts by or relating to D.H. Lawrence. They have been supplied to Nottingham University from originals held in other institutions, on the occasion of exhibitions at Nottingham or for other purposes.

Although the earliest material in this group was acquired in the 1950s, it was not defined as a separate group until 1993, when the entire Lawrence Collection catalogue was reviewed and restructured. Until that time copies of items were interfiled with originals. The creation of a new group provided an opportunity to rationalise the holdings. The revision involved a change in reference numbers; a conversion guide is available for researchers who encounter redundant references in citations.
Custodial HistoryThe items in this collection draw on a variety of sources and have been acquired over many years. The group continues to expand as new items are received.
DescriptionPhotocopies and photographic copies of D.H. Lawrence material within the series in this group represent a variety of types of document. They include correspondence by Lawrence or his contemporaries, photographs of people and places, and literary papers. They draw on the archives in other institutions, both in the U.K. and abroad.
