Comprising 18 books and 10 manuscripts. The collection belonged to Dave and Kate Hunter, friend to whom Roberts dedicated Ladies from Hell. The only connection between Dave Hunter and Roberts I can find is that Hunter is listed as the interior illustrator for Missa Privata in New Worlds. A wonderful collection.

Several of the mss here we can't track to publications, that's not to say they're unpublished just that we've been unable to find any details. Said mss are Irish Reconnaissance, American Hospital, Poste Restante, Some Observations. The latter could foreseeably have been published in Lemady given it's biographical nature, though for lack of a copy I can't confirm] [9149, Hyraxia Books].
