John Cargill Thompson, The boys' Dumas

Scope and Content

Book file relating to John Cargill Thompson's bibliography of publications by G.A. Henty, The boys' Dumas. G.A. Henty: aspects of Victorian publishing (Cheadle: Carcanet Press, 1975). The volume was printed by Eyre and Spottiswoode. The book file contains only the manuscript of the volume which is in the form of a carbon typescript (and has been stamped as a copy). Revisions and additions, presumably by the author, have been added principally in black ink but occasionally also in blue. The manuscript has been marked up with printing instructions in green pencil. Stored with a compliments slip from the printers, which was sent to accompany the page proofs of the volume (not preserved in the archive), dated 1 August 1975.


Each section of the manuscript has its own internal numbering sequence, as well as including a number of inserts. The archivist has therefore added running numbers at the top left of each sheet.
