NHM-WP06.006 Photo: -- Photographic prints, proof illustrations and ms. notes relating to Wallace, Alfred Russel, 1900, "Studies Scientific and Social" (London 1900). Approximately 100 individual documents/images including duplicates; most undated, almost all with annotations including captions, directions for printers and figure numbers, in A. R. Wallace's and/or other hands. Notes: The publication is a series of essays on a variety of topics. Each "piece" in item WP6/6 consists of a number of papers relating to a specific essay: individual documents are described within a single piece-level description. Reference codes have been added to the documents in pencil in square brackets on the backs of photos but where possible on the front of ms and print. Speculative dates are based on dates of publication of "Studies Scientific and Social" (1900) and A. R. Wallace's original essays, except where there is evidence of the date of original creation of an image. Roughly half the images and notes were found in an envelope labelled, probably in WGW's hand, "Photos &c for Studies". The string and envelope, which was filthy, torn and disintegrating at the touch, was discarded. Copies of some of these images and subjects closely related were scattered throughout three of the four original boxes including 80 proof illustrations loose in box 3 and a few in other folders/envelopes in boxes 2 and 3. All have been brought together for final listing including images which were not reproduced in the book but were so similar to those used that they were probably considered and rejected, though some may have been published elsewhere.
