MC:P233/3/N1 Newspaper Clippings collected by Edward Chapman
It is likely that these items were conserved by Robert Gunther before being donated to the archive by Albert Gunther.
These clippings include several (undated) excerpts from various newspapers relating to an article written in Isis about the Dean of Christ Church. From The Windsor Magazine (undated), with colour illustrations of cartoons and their descriptions, is a light-hearted article on characters from the Universities and Public Schools.

The back cover contains two of Chapman’s old school exercise books, one entitled ‘Themes’ and dated September 12 1856, the other entitled ‘French’ started 15 October 1857 and ended 19 April 1858.
