Hannah More Collection

The Hannah More collection includes many early and later editions of this English religious writer's more important works on education and morals as well as many of the minor items such as plays and poetry. There is a run of thirty-five of the first printing of Cheap Repository Tracts, sixteen of which are by More (1745-1833) as well as a prospectus for the Tracts and later printings of the Tracts. Other holdings include a copy of Elizabeth Montagu, An Essay on the Writings and Genius of Shakespear fifth edition (1785) with a presentation inscription from the author to Hannah More in More's hand. Autograph letters by More and her sisters are held in the Manuscript Collection.

Records for the holdings are in the McGill Library on-line catalogue.
