U.Va. gets rare gift

The University Library’s Special Collections treasury of manuscripts and rare books has grown with the donation of an original Washington Irving manuscript.

The bound manuscript notebook containing Irving’s notes and drafts on his eventual publication The Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus was given to the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library by professor emeritus Vera Granlund and her husband John Granlund, a direct descendant of Ebenezer Irving, Washington Irving’s brother.

The manuscript joins other Irving materials already in Special Collections as part of the Clifton Waller Barrett Library of American Literature.
