Scope and Contents

The Llewelyn Powys Literary File consists of 570 items largely contained in six albums. There are portraits of various people, including Powys and members of his family, as well as views of various places. An index at the end of this guide lists photographers whose work is featured in this file. Further descriptions of some items are available in a card catalog in the repository.

This file forms a part of the Literary File Collection, which is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures, and generally include portraits and images collected by or of those figures.
