Madan (Falconer) Collection of Oxford Manuscripts

Significantly Revised Finding Aid: The collection consists of a small group of Falconer Madan's papers relating to his research and writings, and originals and copies of manuscripts relating to various individuals, and academic, social and historical events relating to the University of Oxford and the Oxford environs. Original manuscripts include a group of twenty-three printed promises to support Sir Roundell Palmer in the Parliamentary election of 1868, signed by members of Oxford University, with related manuscript notes; "Description of a Magdalen College, Oxford University gaudy," describing a student festival; and a scrapbook record of a honeymoon in Oxford in 1853, with manuscript descriptions, and illustrated with engravings, press clippings, drawings, and printed ephemera by the bridal couple, Theodosius and Mary Purland. Two boxes contain additional correspondence, verses, forms, and various memoranda relating to the city of Oxford and the University of Oxford.
