Publications from Locke’s Papers (1829-  )

John Locke is unusual in the wealth of source material which he left for later scholars. In his will, he stipulated that all his manuscript papers and half of his library were to go to his cousin Peter King. These remained in the family and the papers were purchased by the Bodleian Library from the last owner, the Earl of Lovelace, in 1947. The books and a few remaining manuscripts were purchased by Paul Mellon and have been donated to the Bodleian.1

In addition to the Lovelace Collection (as it was called), a substantial collection of Locke’s papers were to be found among the papers of the Earls of Shaftesbury, deposited during the mid-nineteenth century in the Public Record Office.2 There were also Locke papers in the British Library and a few isolated (but significant) manuscripts scattered in other repositories.

This material was for long in private hands and unavailable for use. The first revelation of the richness of Locke’s papers was made by his biographers. The seventh Lord King published his life of Locke in 1829, making use of his family’s collections. The life was scarcely a biography, more a collection of documents pasted together with a little narrative. The documents were somewhat indifferently edited, with unmarked omissions and frequent inaccuracies. Locke’s Victorian biographer, H.R. Fox Bourne, did not have access to the Lovelace Collection. He made use of the documents printed by King and thoroughly explored the Shaftesbury papers and the British Library manuscripts. Locke’s twentieth-century biographer, Maurice Cranston, had access to the Lovelace Collection at the Bodleian and quoted extensively from new material, particularly Locke’s journals and correspondence.

Journals and Notebooks

Locke constantly recorded his observations of nature and events, men and books, in a journal kept from 1675 until his death, and in a variety of commonplace books. The journals of his visit to France in 1675-1678 have been published, as have the medical notes from his journals (see Locke #925). A complete edition is being prepared for the Clarendon edition of Locke’s works.

Medical Writings

Victorian physicians were pleased to count the great philosopher as one of their own and published a few of his medical papers. The extent of Locke’s medical career and writings, however, are known primarily through the work of one man, the medical historian Kenneth Dewhurst. He has published a medical biography of Locke and numerous extracts from his papers. His most interesting conclusion has been that most of the medical treatises in Locke’s papers were in fact by Sydenham, with Locke acting as secretary or (perhaps) junior partner in the joint venture.

Drafts of An essay concerning human understanding

The process of writing the Essay was a lengthy one. The work’s development can be traced through three surviving drafts.3 The first, called Draft A, was written in 1671, was published in 1936 by Aaron and Gibb. The second, Draft B, likewise written in 1671, was published in 1931 by Rand. Only excerpts from the third (Draft C) have been published. The Clarendon edition will include transcriptions of all the drafts.

Early Writings on Toleration

Locke’s early development was further illuminated by the discovery of his early writings on toleration. The following pieces have been published:

(1) “Quest: whether the Civill Magistrate may lawfully impose and determine the use of indifferent things in reference to Religious Worship” (1660) [MS. Locke e.7] Reply to Edward Bagshaw’s The great question concerning things indifferent in religious worship (1660); Locke supports the authority of the magistrate.

(2) “An Magistratus Civilis possit res adiaphoras in divini cultus ritus asciscere, Eosque populo imponere? Aff.” (1660-63) [MS. Locke, c.28, ff.3-20 ] The Latin tract on the power of the civil magistrate.

(3) “An necesse sit dari in Ecclesia infallibilem Sacro Sancti Scripturae interpretum? Negatur” [PRO 30/24/47/33] This piece shows Locke beginning to doubt the wisdom of entrusting conscience to the magistrate.

(4) “An essay concerning toleration” (1667) There are four copies: MS. Locke c. 28, ff.21-32; PRO 30/24/47/1; Huntington Library HM584; and Adversaria ethica, p.106-125 [present whereabouts unknown]

(5) “Toleratio” (1679) [MS. Locke d.1, p.125-126]

(6) Critical notes on Edward Stillingfleet’s The mischief of separation (1680) and The unreasonableness of separation (1681) [MS. Locke c. 34]

The English and Latin tracts and the “Essay” were first edited by Viano and published in Italy in 1961. An edition of the two tracts on the civil magistrate was published by Abrams in 1967.

Library and Reading Lists

In addition to his papers, Locke left half his library to Peter King. This portion was purchased by Paul Mellon and is now in the Bodleian Library. The other half was left to Francis Masham and was dispersed in 1883. Locke kept a catalog of his library, which was published by Harrison and Laslett in 1965, and made numerous lists of books for various purposes.

The Digital Locke Project / Dr. Paul Schuurman, project director. – Amsterdam : Digital Production Centre of the University Library of the University of Amsterdam, 2006-  .

Available at: www.digitallockeproject.nl

A pilot project to produce scholarly text editions of Locke manuscripts; initial content will be manuscripts relating to Locke’s philosophy produced between the publication of the Essay concerning human understanding (1689) and Locke’s death in 1704; a printed version of these texts will appear as volume 3 of Drafts for the Essay concerning human understanding, and other philosophical writings, edited by Paul Schuurman and J. C. Walmsley.

The first work mounted on the cite was Of the conduct of the understanding [based on Schuurman’s edition of the manuscripts (2000)]: MS. Locke c. 28, ff. 121-138 and MS. Locke e. 1. By December 2007, descriptions and transcriptions of most of the manuscripts that will appear in volume 3 of the Drafts have been added to the site. By December 2011, an introductory essay, chronology, descriptions of the manuscripts, and textual remarks have been added or expanded.
