A collection of letters received by Daubeny from prominent scientific, political and religious figures of the day. The letters were presented to Magdalen College by his great nephew J.P. Bulley on 21 Jan 1919. The letters are drawn from a much larger collection, and are arranged in seven volumes. An index by letter number is provided in the first volume, and an index by name in the last volume; the numbering system used has been maintained in this catalogue. No other letters to Daubeny are known to survive – presumably after this selection was made, the rest were destroyed. The first volume contains two letters to R. W. T. Gunther from J. P Bulley, discussing the donation, dated 04 Dec 1918 and 20 Jan 1919.
