Correspondence with Maggs Bros Ltd
Scope and Contents
Correspondence, mostly with lenders of items to the exhibition, other papers relating to the exhibition, and an album compiled by Crutchley. The correspondence is almost all to or from Crutchley or his assistant John Dreyfus, Crutchley's letters being typescript carbon copies. Records and descriptions of items lent are among the correspondence. The exhibition intended to mark the five hundredth anniversary of Gutenberg's invention, took place in May 1940. It closed after only 10 days because of the danger of bombing.
