Scope and Content

Photocopy of a typed memo, dated 16.3.83, from J. Cinamon of Penguin Books Ltd to Doreen Scott. The memo, which is headed 'Clearance of Harmondsworth Archives', appears to have accompanied the original artwork for 'Time for a Story' when it was removed from the Penguin archive in 1983 and concerns the return of the artwork to the artist, Charlotte Hough.

A manuscript annotation on the memo states that enclosed with the memo were '4 boards and 1 single' illustration, which constitutes the contents of this file. This suggests that the missing sheet of illustrations [see file level description, CH/05, for further information] was lost by the publisher prior to the return of the artwork to Charlotte Hough.
