This collection chiefly covers the period 1964-1967, when Rowley Atterbury was working at Rocappi. The bulk of the collection consists of his incoming and outgoing business correspondence of from May 1964 to April 1967. In his role as Managing Director he had taken on responsibility for the public relations and promotion of the firm, and many of the letters reflect this. There is also correspondence dealing with the relations between Rocappi Ltd and the parent firms of Rocappi Inc., Westerham Press and Hazell Sun/British Printing Corporation. The collection also contains press cuttings; samples of material produced by the Rocappi process; promotional leaflets and press releases; minutes of directors' meetings; lists of enquiries from potential clients; proposals for projects; overseas proposals and enquirires; material relating to attempts to hire out the computer for typestting jobs to other firms; marketing reports, and draft contracts.
In addition, there are a few of Atterbury's papers from the period after he left the firm. These consist of some correspondence 1968-1970 with government bodies about obtaining government funding to support a computer typesetting business, and also accounts of the founding of the company and Atterbury's time there, the last dated 1992.
