Notes

Alan Cole
This was one of the first three items I obtained, which then formed the basis of the MOW collection. It was given to me by an elderly neighbour because it was torn. He supplemented his income by making lampshades out of old manuscripts and had literally hundreds of them obtained from museums and collectors, as they were 'of no interest' at the time.
