NHM-WP03.003 Notebook: -- Small lined and ruled notebook with "Addresses" faintly visible on front cover and the remains of a brass clasp on back and front boards; containing very approximately personal and corporate names and addresses in A. R. Wallace's hand, with a few printed address lists and labels pasted onto some pages and onto the inside front cover, and lists of people to whom various A. R. Wallace publications or letters were sent (detailed below). Addresses are in alphabetical order by name but divided into categories, (by year?) so that there is more than one section A-Z. Addresses pasted in include a list in newsprint of newspaper offices in London, on the flyleaf underneath a list in A. R. Wallace's hand headed "Paintings". Twelve pages at the back of the book contain gardening notes written upside down relative to the front pages and beginning on the last page of the book. These are a calendar of flowering plants at the Dell, April-May 1873 and 1875, (143-141) list of Cape (South African) heaths each with botanical name, description and time of flowering, (pp. 139-131) and a diagram of plantings c. 1889-1890 (p. 130). A loose business card from Parsons & Hayter, Builders and Estate Agents of Swanage and Wareham, is enclosed between pp 63 and 64. The notebook is approximately 16cm x 9cm, approximately 120 pages, of which 12 between the address and gardening notes section are blank. Notes which are not, or not simply, address lists are: p. 19: Names: Dec 1879, written to about result of Epping Forest Competition. p. 20: Names: To send nationalisation circular (list undated) pp. 39-40: Names: Land Nationalisation bound and paper copies sent to.(At the top of p. 40 is a note of "Diagrams on black calico by Geo. A. Rea [sic]") p. 41: includes a list of Guildford newspapers. p. 42: includes a list of gardeners pp. 43-44: Probable income during 1886-7-8,and Fixed outgoings p.45: Names: Large photos (Portrait?) sent to. pp. 46-47: American addresses (other American addresses occur in the alphabetical sections) p. 48: Miscellaneous U. K names and addresses not in alphabetical order, including V.C. special committee of London Society for the abolition of vaccination. pp. 49-50: Names: Darwinism sent to p. 50; Names: L. N. (Land Nationalisation) Address (sent to?) p. 54: Names: "Expressiveness of Speech", copies sent to p. 55: Names: "Gorge of the Aar", sent to p. 76: includes names: Copies of L.N. address 1895 "Unemployed" sent to p. 79: includes names: Copies new edition of "Island Life" July 1902 sent to p. 106: includes names: Copies of "Is Mars Habitable" sent to p. 108: Names: "Is it peace or war" copies of Public Opinion Aug 14, 1908 sent to Name: Wallace, Alfred Russel, 1823-1913 Notes: I have numbered the pages in pencil in square brackets from  to  beginning with the inside front flyleaf . P J Lucas Feb 2003. 5. Extremely poor condition, broken back, boards loose, flyleaf and some pages at front loose. This is likely to be a very important source of information and conservation should be high priority. PJL 2003

NHM-WP09.002 Notebook: undated Mss. Lectures on the subject of the tropics; three undated notebooks in A. R. Wallace's hand Notes: Possibly for BAAS meeting Aug-Sep 1863 (See Michael Shermer 2002, p. 153). Could be from A. R. Wallace's American tour 1886-87, UK tour 1890; RI lectures c 1908 or others, but BAAS meeting seems likely as he lectured there "On the Varieties of Men in the Malay Archipelago" (Shermer, p. 153). Press cuttings may help date them.
