Confidential Print, Africa, 1834?1966
The Confidential Print series was issued by the British Government between c. 1820 and 1970, originating out of a need to preserve the most important papers generated by the Foreign and Colonial Offices. These range from single-page letters or telegrams to comprehensive dispatches, investigative reports and texts of treaties. This Africa collectoin begins in the early 19th century and covers the whole of the modern period of European colonisation of the continent from the British Government’s perspective.
