Blackwood Papers: part of the literary archives of the firm of William Blackwood and Sons, publishers.
Twenty-two of the letters are addressed to William Maginn and relate mainly to the affairs of ‘Blackwood's Magazine’, including the dispute between Blackwood and Richard Martin as a result of references to the latter in the 'Noctes Ambrosianae'. Throughout there are references to Sir Walter Scott, John Gibson Lockhart, John Galt, and other literary figures. At the end (folio 50) is an apparently unpublished review by William Maginn of William Thomas Brande's ‘Manual of Pharmacy’.
