NLW Minor Deposits

Scope and Content

This is a numbered series currently (August 2006) reaching 1615. The deposits included in it are minor in the sense that they consist of single items, or small groups of documents or papers where the group has been treated as a single item. There is one medieval missal, a few literary manuscripts, a large number of registers and other records from chapels, and much else.


Arranged in a single numbered series currently (August 2006) running from no. 1-1615 by the date of accession or processing of each item.
