With its Sir Walter Ralegh Room, and with a significant number of Ralegh enthusiasts among its volunteers over the last 50 years, it’s not surprising to find a fair number of books about the great Elizabethan in Fairlynch Museum. Here are the titles that I found in a recent exploration:
Christopher M. Armitage – Sir Walter Ralegh: an Annotated Bibliography
Published for America's Four Hundredth Anniversary Committee by the University of North Carolina Press, 1987 pp.236
This is described as an exhaustive work citing approximately 2000 items, including biographies and other writings about Ralegh. It encompasses all works written by or attributed to Ralegh.
Professor Armitage joined the UNC-Chapel Hill faculty in 1967, specializing in seventeenth- and twentieth-century English and Canadian literature. After graduating from Oxford University he earned a second master’s degree from the University of Western Ontario in Canada in 1964, and a doctorate from Duke University in 1967. Since 1970 he has returned annually to England to conduct a six-week study program on ‘Shakespeare in Performance’ for students and alumni.
His Literary and visual Ralegh was published by Manchester University Press in 2013. You can read an entertaining interview about Raleigh with Christopher Armitage at https://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/sir-walter-lived-large-and-traveled-well-but-never-to-the-new-world/Content?oid=3624054
Roger Bowen – From Lunacy to Croquet: The Life and Times of Dr Thomas Nadauld Brushfield 2013. From the publisher’s description: ‘The story of Dr Thomas Nadauld Brushfield (1828 - 1919) richly deserves to be told. He was one of those very rare people who truly deserve the epithet polymath. As a pioneer in the treatment of lunacy he had few equals; as a bibiophile he was celebrated for his studies into the life and literary works of Sir Walter Ralegh’.
