expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Michael Sadleir, author, publisher, and bibliographer, was born on Christmas Day 1888 in Oxford, England, to Sir Michael Ernest Sadler and Mary Ann Harvey Sadler. His father was an educator, author, and art collector, and his mother was a wealthy Yorkshire heiress. An only child, Sadleir was deeply devoted to his parents. Early in life, he adopted the name "Sadleir," an older spelling of Sadler, to avoid confusion with his similarly named father.

Sadleir was educated at Rugby and at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1912, while he was still at Oxford, Sadleir completed his first major work, The Political Career of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, which won the Stanhope essay prize. In the same year, he secured a position with the publishing firm of Constable and Company, Ltd. By 1920, Sadleir was chairman of the company.

In 1913, Constable sent Sadleir to the United States for training with Houghton Mifflin, a publishing company in Boston. He married Edith Tupper Carey, when he returned to England in 1914. They had three children--Michael Thomas Carey, Richard, and Ann. Both sons fought in World War II; Michael Thomas Carey was killed in action in 1942.

Sadleir's first novel, Hyssop, was published in 1915. His other novels include The Anchor (1918), Privilege (1921), These Foolish Things (1937), and Forlorn Sunset (1947). The most successful of Sadleir's novels was Fanny By Gaslight (1940).

During World War I, Sadleir worked for the War Intelligence Department, and, at the conclusion of the war, was sent to the peace conference as a member of the British delegation. After the war, he served on the Secretariat of the League of Nations and helped to organize the League's Department of Publishing and Printing. After the war, Sadleir returned to Constable and Company, and continued to work there throughout his life.

Sadleir was a prolific writer. In addition to novels, he wrote numerous articles, reviews, introductions, and pamphlets. He was also active in biography and bibliography. His work in these fields includes Excursions in Victorian Bibliography (1922); Daumier (1924); Trollope--A Retrospect (1927); Trollope--A Bibliography (1928); Evolution of Publishers' Binding Styles, 1700-1900 (1930); Bulwer and His Wife, 1803-1836 (1931); and Blessington-D'Orsay: A Masquerade (1933).

Sadleir is probably best known for his contributions to bibliography. In 1937, he was the Sandars Reader in Bibliography at Cambridge University and president of the Bibliographical Society (Great Britain) from 1944 to 1945. He was particularly interested in bibliographic studies of lesser-known nineteenth-century authors, and amassed a huge collection of the works of these authors. Nineteenth Century Fiction, a massive, two-volume catalog published in 1951, is considered to be Sadleir's bibliographic masterwork. His exacting standards for bibliography, which are reflected in this work, have had a lasting impact on modern bibliography and book collecting.

Michael Sadleir died 15 December 1957 in England.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

After Michael Sadleir's death in 1957, the material in this collection was in the possession of Dudley Massey of Pickering and Chatto, booksellers. Massey died in 1981. In 1982, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill purchased the collection from Bertram Rota, Ltd., London. The collection was received in three installments. The largest arrived in September 1982 and was followed by a second installment in November 1982 and a third in February 1983. The Michael Sadleir Papers, the current manuscripts collection, was formed from materials other than published items (publishers' catalogs, the works of W. E. Henley, and the Edmund Evans ledger), which were incorporated into the Rare Books Collection.

The bulk of the Michael Sadleir Papers consists of Sadleir's professional correspondence, writings, photographs, and research material. It documents Sadleir's career as author, publisher, and bibliographer. Also included is personal and family material. The family papers consist of genealogical material collected by Sadleir's father, family correspondence from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, photographs, and financial material.

This arrangement reflects the original order of the papers as received. It is not clear whether or not this order was Sadleir's own or was imposed by later owners of the papers. Some folders, however, still bore Sadleir's handwritten labels when received at UNC. These folder titles have been preserved and the pertinent folders form the bulk of Series 4.

Since the arrangement upon receipt may reflect Sadleir's original order, every attempt has been made to retain it. This means that the series may overlap and are at times inconsistent, particularly where correspondence is concerned. Series 1 includes Sadleir's personal and professional correspondence, but correspondence to and from the people in Series 1, as well as other correspondence, may be found in Series 2, 3, and 4. In Series 2, correspondence relates to family matters and finances; in Series 3, it relates to writings; and, in Series 4, it relates to specific subjects that Sadleir studied. See the series descriptions that follow for particulars on the arrangement of each series.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Correspondence, 1863-1958.

About 600 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by correspondent.

Professional and personal correspondence of Michael Sadleir and correspondence of the publishing house of Constable and Company, of which Sadleir was chairman. Sadleir's professional correspondence includes letters from authors, publishers, librarians, illustrators, book collectors, and others writing to Sadleir in his capacity as publisher at Constable and Company, as editor of the magazine Rhythm, as author, and as bibliographer. Of particular interest are letters from D. H. Lawrence, which include holographs of Lawrence's poems "Labour Battalion" and "No News" (folders 114-115); letters from Emile Verhaeren to Sadleir and others, which include four holograph poems, notes for poems, and two typescript essays (folders 214-221); and letters from the Trollope family (folders 207-211), Walter De La Mare (folder 47), Dorothy Sayers (folder 187), and Vita Sackville West (folder 184). Also included is a letter from Sheridan Le Fanu dated 1863 to Mrs. Monck (folder 118). Personal correspondence includes letters from members of the Beef Club in Boston, Massachusetts, a club to which Sadleir belonged, when he worked for Houghton Mifflin in 1913-1914 (folder 11); and 116 letters from Edgar Lobel, a librarian at the Bodley and intimate friend of Sadleir (folders 121-123). The Lobel letters provide many details about Sadleir. Also included are a brief note from Winston Churchill (folder 32) and many other letters from Sadleir's friends. Personal and professional correspondence have been mingled because the distinction between Sadleir's personal and professional life is difficult to discuss. For family and financial correspondence see Series 2.

The Constable and Company material includes routine correspondence to and from various members of the company including Sadleir, primarily from authors whose work the company published.

The material in this series is arranged alphabetically by correspondent. This was the arrangement as received at UNC and is not necessarily Sadleir's. Important correspondents are foldered separately, while less significant correspondents are filed together by the initial letter in their surnames, and unidentified correspondents are filed at the end of the series. Some correspondence was transferred to the Rare Book Literary and Historical Papers from the Rare Book Collection; those items either have an accession number or a transfer date in the upper left hand corner, and some have a note attached explaining where the letters were found among published material.

For additional information about the correspondents or content of the letters, consult the Bertram Rota Catalogue, which is available from the reference staff. See Series 4. Subject Files for correspondence on specific subjects.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 4.1. Bentley Publishing House, 1834-1939

About 750 items.

Arrangement: by type of material

Typed and handwritten transcriptions of correspondence, notes, biographical material, part of a transaction ledger, and clippings pertaining to Michael Sadleir's study of the Bentley publishing house and its authors. Letters include the correspondence of George Bentley and his son Richard with various authors; correspondence pertaining to the ill-fated merger of the Bentley publishing house with Henry Colburn; correspondence between Michael Sadleir and Richard Bentley; and letters from Mrs. Riddell to her Bentley editor, Mr. Tinsley. There are some original letters, especially in the correspondence between Henry Colburn and Bentley, but the bulk of the correspondence is Sadleir's typed transcriptions.

Miscellaneous materials include 13 pages of a Bentley transaction ledger from 1865; a transcription of a statement of E. H. Morgan detailing services rendered by him to Bentley and Colburn; other transcriptions of documents providing biographical data about the Bentleys; Sadleir's notes; a galley proof of letters from "Father Prout" to George Bentley; and newspaper clippings.

The arrangement of this subseries reflects Sadleir's original order. His catagories for correspondence have been retained, but non-correspondence has been separated from the correspondence and put at the end of the subseries.
