BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

The Irish poet was born in Dublin on May 28, 1779. His earliest poetic compositions appeared in "Anthologia Hibernica" during the years 1792-1795. He briefly studied law in London, and other than a brief foray into parliamentary politics, the primary focuses of his life were poetry and the cultivation of aristocratic society. "Irish Melodies" is his most lasting claim to fame, and this work has been credited with both preserving and popularising the numerous ancient Irish airs which form its core.


SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The papers, 1804-1847, of Thomas Moore consist of four manuscript boxes of letters, photographs and engravings, newspaper articles and clippings, poems and correspondence.

The letters are arranged chronologically and divided into numbered and unnumbered originals and copies. The numbered letters, originals and copies are those included in the two volume edition, "The Letters of Thomas Moore", edited by Wilfred S. Dowden (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1964.) Of the 1,323 numbered letters contained in the book, this collection has 223; 156 originals and 67 copies. The numbering on this list corresponds to the numbering system devised by Dr. Dowden. The unnumbered letters are those not included in "The Letters of Thomas Moore", but which span the same time period and include both original letters and copies.

The letters are arranged in the following manner: I. Numbered Originals, II. Unnumbered Originals, III. Numbered Copies, and IV. Unnumbered Copies. Numbered originals consist of those original letters contained in Dowden's work. Unnumbered originals include letters written by Moore, letter fragments and miscellaneous envelopes addressed or signed by Moore, some printed material about Moore and letters to Moore. Numbered copies consists of photocopies of letters written by Moore and included in the published edition. Among a variety of items found in the unnumbered copies are copies of letters letters written by Moore, copies of letters written to Moore, correspondence written concerning Moore and his works, and correspondence concerning the purchase of Moore material and excerpts from catalogues advertising Moore material. In addition to the numbered and unnumbered catagories mentioned above, there is a Commonplace Book contained in a black notebook filled with photocopies of pages in Moore's handwriting.

Box 1 contains only numbered originals; box 2 contains numbered originals and unnumbered originals, box 3 contains unnumbered originals and box 4 contains numbered and unnumbered copies and the Commonplace Book.
