Permission to make any published use of any material from the collection must be sought in advance in writing from the University Archivist, Special Collections. Identification of copyright holders of unpublished material is often difficult. Special Collections will assist where possible with identifying copyright owners, but responsibility for ensuring copyright clearance rests with the user of the material.

Custodial History

The volume was formerly numbered 5361 and incorporated into a collection called the Theatre Collection. However, it appears to be unconnected with the Theatre Collection and has now been catalogued as a discrete collection.
