New digitised material on the website!

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!
