Documents, both published and unpublished, of an anti-semitic nature apparently compiled by an individual, thought to be F.T. Cooper, a cartoonist associated with the Imperial Fascist League, and mainly of the 1930s.
F. T. Cooper Collection
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
This is a miscellaneous collection of ephemeral materials expressing a strongly anti-semitic viewpoint which appears to have belonged to an individual. It was purchased in February 1993 from a bookseller who had received it in a wooden trunk bearing the name 'Cooper'. Some of the items are inscribed 'F.T. Cooper', and the title 'Cooper Collection' therefore seems appropriate. F.T. Cooper was a cartoonist associated with the Imperial Fascist League, who issued a number of the pamphlets in the collection.
The collection consists of both manuscript and printed material, some of the latter being rare, such as the English language version of World Service issued by the Nazis in the 1930s. It may divided into the the following categories:
Leaflets and ephemera
Manuscripts and typescripts
Newspapers and newsletters
Certain other material has been subsequently added to this collection where considered appropriate (e.g. microfilm versions of serials in the Newspapers and newsletters section).
