Most of the items in the collection are described in Mr; Gilcher's outstanding definitive A Bibliography of Ge orge Moore (DeKaIb« Northern Illinois UP, 1970). Among its more than 600 items, thecollection includes most variant editions of each Moore title, typescripts, proof copies, rare and scarce periodicals, and some letters. Representative of the rareties in Mr. Gilcher's collection are·. Flowers of Passion, Martin Luther, Pagan Poems, Les Cloches de Corneville, one of the fifteen copies of The Making of an Immortal on green paper, and many others.
