GLEANINGS AND MEMORANDA
London, 1921 to 1931, hb. A run of 23 bound volumes of this British political journal. Royal 8vo, A political analysis journal published monthly from 1912-1933 by the National Union of Conservative & Unionist Associations.
¶ The National Union of Conservative and Unionist Associations was a federation of the voluntary wing of the British Conservative Party. It was founded in 1867 and was the formal national Conservative association. It was replaced in 1998 by the National Conservative Convention. Nine of the 23 volumes are facsimile reproductions, bound in wine-red buckram similar in colour, and identical in size, to the 14 original volumes. The only other difference is that the text is printed on one side of each page only (in these facsimile volumes). Each volume has a comprehensive index (organised by subject and name) and covers a period of six months. Topics covered include political events, "of interest to women", government actions and legislation, and other topics in the news for the particular month covered. At a guess, each month is about 150 pages in length. The original volumes bear the round rubber stamp of the National Union of Conservative & Unionist Association Reference and Political Library, and most have the bookplate of political science scholar Prof. Michael Kinnear on the inside front board. All volumes show some wear, and the binding of several volumes is rough, with one volume (LXIX) being broken, but intact. The boards on several of the facsimile volumes are bowed. The contents throughout are almost unmarked and complete. Despite its prosaic nature, this is quite a scarce publication, copies being only seen in a few major librairies or on microfilm. It is also a heavy set of books, so it might be best to enquire, first, as to options, and costs, to ship.

This copy inscribed in ink on cover page: "Regards and best wishes J W Dafoe".
