A recent gift to the Yale Collection of American Literature, the provenance of H.D.'s desk is somewhat mysterious; H.D. biographer Barbara Guest writes: “Said to be Christina Rosetti’s, it may originally have belonged to Empress Eugenie, who spent several years in exile in England. Bryher bought the desk for H. D. at the estate sale of Violet Hunt” (Herself Defined, 56). If you have any additional information about this desk, please be in touch with curator Nancy Kuhl (email@example.com).
The exhibition gallery and reading room are closed for the month of August while the library's building is under renovation.
