Administrative history

Philobiblion, a dealership in books and manuscripts (mainly literary), was registered in London, July 24, 1969. The owner, Percy W. Jarrett, moved the business to Victoria B.C. in 1970 and was assisted in the business by his wife Elizabeth and his daughter Sylvia Skelton, wife of Robin Skelton. Robin Skelton's many literary contacts proved useful for the business. In 1987, Sylvia Skelton and Elizabeth Jarrett became Philobiblion's registered owners.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of correspondence generated in course of business along with invoices and inventories. Some correspondence, such as that of Kathleen Raine, includes extended exchanges beyond that required for business purposes. Additionally, some manuscript material acquired by the business is included: i.e. Patrick Creagh, Derek Mahon, and Patrick McCartan's typescripts of letters from W. B. Yeats and Oliver St. John Gogarty.
