Report of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts
Location: Microfiche Cabinet 16, Drawer 9-10
These reports describe privately owned collections of manuscripts of historical interest. There are two kinds of reports in the collection: 1) Commissioners’ reports made to the crown and 2) Inspectors’ reports on individual collections. The Inspectors’ reports are the reports of interest, but they will vary in the details they give about individual manuscripts.
