The volumes include journal articles, newpaper cuttings, trade literature and manuscript notes, with some biographical material on Henry Chapman Jones. Vols. 1 and 2 consist chiefly of extracts from the journal Photography in chronological order; the remaining volumes contain more varied material in random order. The volumes include extracts from as early as the 1850s and as late as 1933 and are not indexed.
