John Donne and the Conway Papers

Patronage and Manuscript Circulation in the Early Seventeenth Century

Daniel Starza Smith

  • The first book to enquire explicitly into Donne's very first readers, asking how they acquired his verses, and what they did with them once they owned them
  • Fills a hugely important gap in current scholarship on Donne, exposing the mechanics of his early textual circulation
  • The fullest biography to date of the Conway family between c.1550 and c.1650
  • Provides the most detailed account to date of the Conway Papers
  • Original bibliographical analysis of manuscripts by John Donne and Ben Jonson, including the important Westmoreland and Leconfield manuscripts, and copies of Donne's iBiathanatos
