The letters mainly concern later editions (including the Penguin edition of 1938), but also include letters from readers. Meynell's correspondents include Edward Bawden, J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd., Nonesuch Press (Harry Carter, Frederick Lemon, George Macy), Penguin Books (John Lane, Allen Lane, Edward Young), and Robert Leighton.
Meynell's correspondents are chiefly the Fanfare Press (including the estimate for the 1945 printing), J. M. Dent & Sons, Nonesuch Press (Robert Leighton, George Macy).
In the 'pre-war' years, some letters concern individual Nonesuch publications. With the letters are a few announcements and programmes for events related to the Press. From 1936 until 1952 Meynell was not formally part of the Nonesuch business. In the 'post-war' years (items 21ff.), the general correspondence files exclude letters on a single publication (which are in the relevant subseries). Some letters relate to the Nonesuch Library. Some letters are to or from Pamela Zander.
