These letterpress copy books were kept by Joseph Cummings Rowell from 1878 to 1904. Many of the volumes had slips inserted
commenting on interesting developments for the history of the library. Unfortunately these slips were in danger of harming
the bindings of the volumes, so it was decided to remove them. It seemed a shame, however, to discard them without making
some effort to preserve the information that had been so laboriously gathered.
