Many books from William James' personal library were given to Harvard and were dispersed, primarily into the general Widener collections, rather than kept together. Each has the bookplate reading:
"From philosophical library of William James, instructor and professor at Harvard, 1872-1910, gift of his family, 1923."
"List of Books and Pamphlets selected from the Library of William James and presented to Harvard College by his Family, 1923", Houghton Library, bMS Am 1092.9 (4579).
If you would like to request a copy of this list, please contact Houghton_Library@harvard.edu.
