- Curator's comments
- This is the residue of a XIXc album left after it had been taken apart and all the pictorial material had been extracted (for this see 1860,0623.1 to 108). According to the register 1860,0623.111 contained 107 sub-numbers, each of which covered a separate piece of paper, whether cuttings or entire publications. When re-assembled in 2018, a number of these items could no longer be found, and they may have been transferred to the Library.
The items which are present are 16-19, 24, 29-38, 41-74, 79, 80, 83-4, 86-9, 91, 92, 95, 96, 104-6. Since they cannot be catalogued as prints, they have been given a single entry on the database.
1860,0623.111.1-15, 26, 28, 78 are currently in the Popular Prints British series.
