ATHERTON, LOUISE. - Never Complain, Never Explain: Records of the Foreign Office and State Paper Office 1500-C. 1960. Public Record Office Readers' Guide No. 7.

London, PRO Publications. 1994. (ISBN: 1873162138) Soft Cover. 189 pp, 4to (11 5/8" H). Colour frontispiece, b&w illustrations. "For scholars of British diplomacy and international affairs, the records of the Foreign Office are an indispensible source. But the range of information and the sheer size of the records can be daunting to the first time user and to the increasing numbers of genealogists who attempt to trace individuals in the files of the diplomatic and consular correspondence. This book provides an introduction to the records in all their variety and suggests appropriate classes to start with. It also examines the state papers foreign, the records of foreign policy which pre-date the modern Foreign Office records. These are more closely related to the later papers than the dividing date of 1782 would suggest. This book also gives the would-be researcher practical guidance in using the registry systems created by the Foreign Office in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to locate surviving papers today." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - slight waviness to top/bottom of textblock, very light rubbing on rear cover, minor edge wear at corners. Very Good+.
