John Murray Archive

This catalogue contains descriptions of items in the John Murray Archive. It includes brief descriptions of all the bound volumes and files of loose papers. There are also some entries for individual documents. The archive is divided into eight series, which are groups of related documents.

This catalogue has been revised and expanded and is now available as the 'Archive of John Murray, publishers' in the Archives and Manuscript Collections catalogue. The descriptions there provide much more information on the content of the archive. The original John Murray Archive manuscripts catalogue remains available for now, but in time it will be discontinued.

The Byron papers series has been temporarily excluded because we are adjusting the numbering of this part of the archive. The papers themselves remain fully available for consultation as normal.

We hope to make this part of the catalogue available again in the near future. If you have an enquiry about the Byron papers, please email
