Scope and content

A bound volume of pamphlets entitled 'Weekly Notes on Art, Nature, Literature, and Science being mainly summaries of the Free Lectures to Men and Women' published between September 1891 and February 1896 (nos. 38 and 39 have a different title: 'Catalogue of the Works of Art'). As well as the text of the lecture, the pamphlets dedicate a section to listing the catalogue of works of art in the South London Fine Art Gallery. These lectures (begun by William Rossiter in 1882) were by 1891 given in the lecture room at the gallery.

The run is not complete and includes the following numbers: 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, 37, 38, 39, 41, 43, 47, 49, 50, 51, 52 (there are two copies of nos. 50, 51 and 52).
