Booklet (1852-1947)

This consists of drafts, memos, reports, observations, booklets, annals, memorandums and other papers. They are mostly in the form of small, bound, printed books or booklets (hence BKLT is used to denote these items). These papers explore various matters pertaining to history, political and social sciences among others.

Extent and format of original material: 93 files.

Physical characteristics: The papers were cheap and transient in nature. In most cases the paper used to print these books was of very poor quality, as a result of which the pages are now yellowed and brittle. Almost all the items are stitched using metal pins which are now rusted and falling apart. The places where these pins are attached to the paper are decayed and covered with rust. While digitising, great care was taken so that we could take photographs of the pages without causing any significant damage to the primary material.

Editor of the original material: British Indian Association.
