Immediate Source of Acquisition

The papers comprising MS Add.9824/A to D (5 boxes) were given by Crutchley, or deposited by him on behalf of Cambridge University Press, to the then Morison Room collection at various times from the 1970s until 1994. Papers connected directly with Stanley Morison, including his correspondence with Crutchley and others at the Press, have been removed to MS Add. 9812.

A further collection of fine letterpress printing was donated to the University Library by Edward Crutchley in 2014 and comprises MS Add.9824/E (7 boxes).
