Diplomatic Papers of Sir Henry Lytton Bulwer

The bulk of the papers listed here concern Bulwer's diplomatic career, principally in Spain, the Danubian Principalities and Constantinople. There are several boxes of papers relating to his Parliamentary career in the 1830s but very little about his short spell as M.P. for Tamworth 1868-71. There are seventeen boxes containing MSS of Bulwer's published works and drafts of articles for newspapers. Personal papers are scanty, but they show how, in the 1850s-60s, Bulwer was troubled both by poor health and financial difficulties.
