Key to Symbols

A or AC The Dickinson Collection, Amherst College Library, Special Collections The numbers on the manuscripts at Amherst College were assigned by Jay Leyda, who arranged and described the materials while they were housed in the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington, D.C., in 1957. Leyda assigned catalog numbers first to what he understood to constitute manuscript volumes (80-95), then to what he understood to be unbound poems and poem fragments (96-540), and, finally, to those documents he considered letters, drafts, and prose fragments (541-1012). The arrangement within each correspondence is intended by Leyda to be chronological.
