Gustavus Adolphus Schutt Schneider: Selections from the Theological Correspondence of Fenton John Anthony Hort
Scope and Contents
Selections of correspondence on theological subjects, 1852-1892, compiled by G.A.S. Schneider dealing mainly with textual criticism of the New Testament, 1022 pages. The letters are arranged chronologically under five subject headings, with a preface and indexes. The versos are blank throughout. The correspondence is principally with B.F. Westcott, Bishop of Durham, and, from 1864, with A.A. Vansittart. About 250 of the letters are drawn upon. A small number of letters have been transcribed in full, and a few sentences from other letters have also been transcribed.

Existence and Location of Copies
F.J.A. Hort's son A.F. Hort went through the boxes of letters and destroyed those he considered were no longer required. It is therefore assumed that the originals no longer exist.
