Not familiar with British Romantic writer Leigh Hunt? After going through the University of Iowa Library's collection of his letters online, visitors will know Hunt intimately. For those visitors who don't have the stamina to pore over the more than 1600 letters that have been digitized thus far, an excellent history of him can be found by clicking "Who is Leigh Hunt?" in the "About the Project" link. The link "About the Brewer-Hunt Collection" reveals that Brewer, an Iowa native of modest means, began collecting Hunt's work in the last 13 years of his life and amassed such a collection, that it was purchased by the University of Iowa Libraries in 1934. The link also mentions the correspondence in the collection that Hunt had with many other noted authors. Visitors should click on "Digitized Letters" to view the thumbnail gallery of Highlights of the Collection and see a host of Sample Searches. "Search Hints" are given in a link on the left hand side of the page, right above "NINES Collaboration". [KMG]
