Index Notebooks, 1855 - 1871

Identifier: Coll-203/A5

Scope and Contents

This series of sixteen Index notebooks appears as one single set, however, there are different series within - some groups and individual specific indexes. They appear to have been created from 1855 and are an attempt by Lyell and his team (featuring several different sets of handwriting, especially the General Indexes) to facilitate access to information gathered and held in other series, including the Offprints, and the Scientific notebooks.
