Dear Ransome experts
I am writing an article about Arthur Ransome's "things" - the material culture of Ransome, his life and his creations, for a journal of museums and collections.
I would like to seek your expert advice.
I understood that the red slippers displayed in the Ransome room at Abbott Hall in Kendal were the original slippers mentioned in Ransome's dedication to his Swallows and Amazons books. Then I heard (but can't recall the source) that this is now disputed or uncertain. Can anyone advise or enlighten me?
If anyone knows of any research published on Ransome's material culture I'd be gld to hear from you.
Yours faithfully
Prof. Peter Stanley
