  • Physical Description
      4 items. Condition: the items were waterlogged during flooding in the cellars at the Altrincham Estate Office in December 1993. This resulted in mould-growth on the leaves and covers of all items, the soiling, delamination and cockling of covers, the bonding together of leaves, and the bleeding of inks.
