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.
Meynell's correspondents include Louis M. Hacker, Oxford University Press (John Brown), Helen Macy, W. R. Phillips, Random House (Bennett Cerf, Charles Antin, Donald Klopfer), Max Reinhardt, W. Harvie Service, and Beatrice Warde.
