Our Digital Resources page is growing apace, and we have just uploaded two new pdfs to the website.
The first is Sir Henry Knyvett’s manuscript ‘A breefe treatis or rather a project for a course to be taken for the defence of this Realm…’, a proposal for reorganising the military written in 1596 to be presented to Queen Elizabeth I.
The second item is a newly acquired run of six copies of The Anti-Monopolist, a rare journal published by the National Operative Anti-Bread Tax Association, which forms part of the Edward Watkin collection.
These have been added to the wide-ranging collection of pdfs which includes several locally interesting works such as Criminal Manchester and Fishwick’s History of Rochdale, as well as the more light-hearted Cup of Destiny. Do go and take a look!
