PRINTERS RECORD BOOK PHOTO-ESSAYS: Bradbury Wilkinson Ltd maintained daily record books reflecting the various works in progress. These records were in photographic format and comprise then-contemporary photographs of the various artworks, handpainted essays, accepted & unaccepted designs in progress. When dates are shown these are the entry dates into the archive record books. By way of comparison to archival materials of the other stamp printers these photographic records can for Bradbury Wilkinson be likened to the so-called "day book" die proofs affixed to the ledger pages in the De La Rue records. As with the De La Rue day book items these Bradbury Wilkinson pieces are similarly important and typically unique. Provenance: Can be reconciled with images of the intact archive prior to distribution.
