Background

Edward Pocknell was a professional shorthand writer and deviser of the Legible Shorthand system. He worked for many years in London and was president of the Shorthand Society. He retired to Exeter and bequeathed his collection of books to Exeter City Library in 1894.

The present listing is a provisional one, based on the items recorded in the 1901 printed catalogue of the Royal Albert Museum reference library. Items marked with an asterisk are listed only on the evidence of inclusion in that catalogue. Those without an asterisk have been verified by a shelf check of that part of the collection which survived the 1942 air raids and fuller publication details and the accession number have been added to these entries.

A subsequent inventory of the material in the collection was undertaken in 2006/7 and the list below has been annotated to show which items are still in the collection. The material has been re-boxed by size, and each box has been numbered. Where an item has been found the record is annotated with the box number, e.g. P29.

A printable list of the titles in the collection is also available as a Factsheet - FS18 - Pocknell Collection image - PDF icon (95KB - pdf help).
