expand/collapse Expand/collapse Collection Overview

Size 1 item
Abstract Scrapbook of clippings about literary and general topics. Included are articles, jokes, poems, accounts of foreign travel, and biographical information. Clippings appear to be from Scottish, English, and American periodicals, chiefly from the 1840s with some from the 1850s. They were pasted on top of records of accounts, 1776-1777 and 1793-1784, which appear to have been kept in the neighborhood of Strathaven (called Straven here), southeast of Glasgow. The names appearing most frequently are Thomson and Currie; it is not clear who kept the accounts or their purpose.
