Papers of Thomas Parkin

 Collection
Call Number: MS P728

Overview

These papers of Thomas Parkin were found in volume one of Hewitson's Coloured illustrations of the eggs of British birds, 1846 (2nd edition). Thomas Parkin, a Fellow of the Zoological Society and a member of the British Ornithologists' Union, placed a letter from Edward Bidwell, also a member of the British Ornithologists' Union, and a letter written by William C. Hewitson, naturalist and illustrator, in the volume. Two letters from John Grant, a bookseller, and a note, probably written by Parkin himself, were pasted into the volume and have since been removed. One of the two letters from Grant discusses J. Irvine Smith, an official shorthand writer to the Law Courts, whose name is inscribed in the volume.
