 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."
If you would like to request a copy of this list, please contact
