Author administration, 1840 - 2016
Scope and Contents
Titles of folders within the files (general, permissions, title of book for example) preserve the way people at the Press organised their records.
PRESS 3/1/1 'General correspondence' contains all matters pertaining to the printing and publishing business, including books which were not published and the fabric of the building.
In the author files, it is the individual or series title which is the focus (the author files are also called book files). Some administrative records are found in these files, for example, Press/3/1/5/1410 is entitled MJCA accounts (Mike Annand, was the Press accountant) and the file contains his correspondence with Press executives about insurance, debts and marketing.
The series includes collaborative works such as the Cambridge Histories, the Cambridge Encylopeadias, and the Cambridge Companions.
Recent book files include the Syndicate paper of approval, contract, readers’ reports, draft or final covers, and correspondence.
