Content Description

Lists compiled by Henry Eyre of documents preserved at the Royal Academy of Arts. Both files appear to be part of the same process whereby Eyre ascribes each document a reference made of Alpha, arabic numeric and roman numeric components. He then includes a brief title description, providing correspondent and, in many cases, subject.

Associated Material

These lists are of crucial importance, in that they give a thorough snapshot of the archive at a time before the known losses took place. References matching those found here can still be seen on the surviving letters and memoranda from the pre-1860 period.
