VI.          Miscellaneous Unpublished Materials by Cox (publicly accessible)

 

                A.            Typescripts of Stage Plays in the Lord Chamberlain’s Play Collection, Manuscripts Collections, British Library

 

                                Mr. Priestley's Problem (first produced at Brighton 19 March 1928; in London at Royalty Theatre, 27 March 1928; LCP 1928/10)

                                The Merchant Prince (music by J.J. Sterling Hill; first produced in Watford 26 March 1928; in London at New Scala Theatre, 30 May 1928; LCP 1928/18)

 

                                Note:  The vocal score of The Merchant Prince was published in 1928 by the National Operatic & Dramatic Association.  The libretto was also (apparently privately) printed; George Locke's A Spectrum of Fantasy, vol. 2 (London:  Ferret, 1994), describes Cox’s copy as “grey wraps stapled at spine,” with the “imprint of Lowe & Brydon printers.”  Another copy of this was in the Theatre Museum, London, before it closed in 2007; it is presumably now in the Victoria & Albert Museum.

 

                B.            Radio Plays in BBC Written Archives Centre

 

                                Red Anemones (radio play by Anthony Berkeley, broadcast in 2 parts, June 1 and 7, 1940; source of “Mr. Bearstowe Says”; reprinted in The Roger Sheringham Stories)

                                The Case of Serafino Pelizzioni, by Anthony Berkeley with “two songs composed by Anthony B. Cox,” broadcast 19 Dec. 1957 (the BBC Written Archives Centre also has a transcript of a conversation between J.K. Cross and Cox discussing this case)

                                Trial and Error, “adapted for broadcasting by A.B. Cox,” broadcast Thurs. 28 May 1959

 

                                Note:  The microfiche edition of the BBC Play Library catalogue also lists a script of Trial and Error “adapted by Francis Iles” and broadcast 12 December 1957, but this has been missing since at least 1987, so it cannot be determined whether this differed substantially from the 1959 version.  This catalogue also indicates that a radio script of Hue and Cry by Iles was submitted to the BBC but turned down in 1951; the BBC did not keep rejected scripts.

 

                                Also in the BBC Written Archives Centre:

 

·         Draft of “Plotting a Detective Story” by Dorothy L. Sayers and Anthony Berkeley (date given as 23.7.30; manuscript revisions, some in Cox's hand, some not; printed in CADS Apr. 2007, see Section IV)

·         Transcript of interview of Iles, “Books and Authors,” 11 Oct. 1947

 

                                The above items are on microfilm.  Iles also participated in the radio programme “Stump the Story Teller,” 6 May 1948, but since this involved improvisation, the script does not indicate what he said.

 

                C.            Letters by Cox (in libraries’ manuscript collections)

Music:  Philip L. Scowcroft reports that an Anthony Berkeley Cox published several pieces of music in 1960:  “Four Conventional Waltzes,” “Four Unconventional Waltzes,” “Two Marches,” “The Fighting Patrol (March for the Home Guard),” and “Highland Patrol.”  Scowcroft states that this Cox “may be identical” with the Anthony Berkeley Cox who wrote crime fiction.  I have seen this music at the British Library and can confirm this; these songs were published by “A.B. Cox Ltd., 131a Eltham High Street, London, S.E. 9”—which also printed two limericks collections by Cox around 1960.  (Trinity College Dublin also has these songs, according to COPAC.)

 

Some sources for Anthony Berkeley Cox’s books:

 

 

Most of the periodicals in section III are in the British Library at St. Pancras or the British Library Newspaper Library in Colindale.

 

                Wikipedia previously listed a 1938 short story by Berkeley, “Thomas Meagher Eats an Apple.”  I have contacted an expert on Cox, and we both suspect that this is an error; but if anyone knows differently, please contact me at arobinson@lagrange.edu with a citation.

 

                My thanks to Tony Medawar for alerting me to several items of which I had been unaware; to Julie Snelling of the BBC Written Archives Centre; to Charles Stone-Tolcher, who sent me copies of Cox’s two articles from the 1924 Grand Magazine (missing from the British Library); to R.F. Stewart; to Hannah Lowery of the University of Bristol Special Collections; Stephen Freeth of the Guildhall Library Manuscripts Section; to the staffs of the British Library, British Newspaper Library, Cambridge University Library, and Indiana University Library; and to the people on whose bibliographies I have drawn, especially Paul R. Moy, Ayresome Johns, and Malcolm J. Turnbull (see Section VII).
