      4 sub-series. Condition: the paste used to fix the cuttings to the pages has, in many cases caused discolouration, and in some cases the print is almost obscured.

Scope and Content

The majority of items in this series are volumes of varying sizes into which newspaper cuttings have been pasted. Many of the volumes also contained loose cuttings and other material such as leaflets and letters relevant to the articles and reviews. In such cases, the material has been removed and placed in an envelope inside the volume and each loose piece given a running number, the quantity and nature of the loose items being noted in the list. Where the volumes have numbered pages and items have been inserted at a particular page, the location of the removed material has also been noted.
