Publication reviews scrapbook, with clippings covering Jarrold news

Volume containing reviews of Jarrold and Sons publications clipped or copied from newspapers and magazines, in addition to a smaller number of clippings covering news relating to the Jarrold business or family. The latter includes articles about the visit of Sir Nevile Wilkinson's famous dollhouse Titania's Palace to the Norwich store and the funeral of Samuel Jarrold's eldest daughter Mrs George Jewson (Mary Jane). There are also clippings about W.T.F. Jarrold and his wife Alice's association with local organisations, such as her position as Chairman of the Norwich Y.W.C.A. and his Chairmanship of the temperance group the Norfolk and North Suffolk Band of Hope Union. The fact that there are several clippings relating to W.T.F. Jarrold or his wife, and that the most recent clippings date to 1937, indicate that this scrapbook could have been kept by him until his death. The volume contains some loose enclosures.
