This collection of material by and about Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was bequeathed to the Library by Dr Archibald C. Elias, Jr (1944-2008). Elias was an independent scholar from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who published widely on Swift and his circle. He bequeathed his outstanding 18th– and 19th-century Swift and Swiftiana collection to Trinity, along with 20th-century reference material, some working papers and a small number of notable manuscripts.
