This material was removed from various volumes on John Keats that the Lowes family gave to the Houghton Library. The books were cataloged as separate volumes and the manuscript material was removed to the Keats Room files for use in cataloging the John Keats papers, also held by the Houghton Library. The Keats Room files were weeded in 2002 and this material cataloged.
