- Acquisition notes
- The acquisition source is unknown (2018). The 'Political Alphabet' 184.a.10/2 and The Log Book 10/4 are catalogued by Reid and therefore must have entered the collection prior to publication of his 'Catalogue of Cruikshank's Works' 1871. Due to annotations by Elizabeth Senior on the pamphlets, they will have entered the collection before 1939.
