Scope and content

Pencil manuscript draft notes for articles with headings such as, for example, Holly, Woodland through the Year, Natures's Necklaces, Churches-looking for Yews, etc..The drafts include many cancelled passages, often with interlinear, replacement wording. Headings appear to have been inserted after the articles were drafted. Throughout the volumes are monthly lists of 'ideas' for articles-usually a particular species of plant or animal. Sometimes, these lists appear on the inside back cover and, in these instances, are described as ideas for the following year. The volumes may also include memoranda re contacts, letters received, nature observations made and occasional sketches. The earlier notebooks tend to be less obviously organised and include, sometimes long, passages of notes without headings and other, apparently miscellaneous jottings. A clue to the author's method may be found in MC 2217/18, in which is mentioned a tape [recorder]. Presumably, she used this in the field, then transferred the recordings to the page at home.
