Charles Lamb's Library on Library Thing

I've been putting my researching skills to good use.  We just finished cataloging the library of Charles Lamb on Library Thing.  In addition to citing reference lists identifying some of the  books in Lamb's library, we researched Lamb's letters contained in the Bibliophile Society and Marrs editions.

Update on Letters Found in Books

I still have not discovered where Joseph Carson's memorial on A.S.W.Rosenbach appeared. It was not printed in any of the Philadelphia or New York papers, and was not presented at any Philadelphia institutions or book clubs.

Likewise, I still have not identified the recipient of George Birkbeck Hill's letter. I can say, however, that the marginalia written in the accompanying books was not written by the hand of Robert Ernest Cowan.
