Edgar Innes Fripp


Large collection of literary and historical papers, mainly relating to Stratford and Shakespeare, together with original manuscript works and lecture notes etc., of Edgar Innes Fripp (1861-1931), author of 'Shakespeare's Stratford',' Shakespeare's Haunts', 'Shakespeare Studies', 'Master Richard Quyney' and 'Shakespeare, Man and Artist', and editor of the first four volumes of 'Minutes and Accounts of the Stratford-upon-Avon Corporation'. Fripp also contributed numerous articles to The Architect, Notes and Queries and other journals. Much of the material cannot be dated precisely: some lecture notes date back to 1897 but most of his original research work on Shakespeare was done after 1920 and the inclusive 'c.1910-1931' has been used for entries where no other information is given.
