Around 190 items, fifteen of them loosely inserted. (The firm was already a century old at the time this material was assembled, boasting that it was 'established the year after Waterloo', 1816.) Contained within a sturdy album of grey paper (dimensions 48.5 x 33.5 cm.), stitched with string into covers with brown cloth spine. Label on front cover: 'ADVERTISEMENT FILE. | CHAS. THURNAM & SONS.' In manuscript on label: 'OLD MATTER | NOT TO BE DESTROYED'. Includes five items of publicity material for Thurnam's General Railway Guide, as well as examples of the firm's colour printing, advertisements for its stationery and other products and services, including 'Typewriting Work' and 'Serrated Edge Pattern Cutting'. Also a number of fliers for various branches of the business, including 'The Old Bookshop', 11-15 King's Arms Lane, Carlisle. Also: an offprint of an article from the Cumberland News, 8 June 1912, titled 'Honour for Carlisle Printing Firm'; a booklet entitled 'Illustrated List of Illuminated Addresses and Testimonials'; a poster in black, green and red, of 'Specimens of Copper Plate Engraving' ('We Manufacture and Supply EVERYTHING in connection with the Stationery, Printing, Bookselling, Paper, and Account Book Trades.'); a catalogue of 'Some Xmas Suggestions from The House of Thurnam'. The volume also includes a copy of a letter from HMSO to the firm, informing them that they 'have been placed on the list of firms to be invited to tender for Government Printing and binding work from time to time', together with a copy of the firm's long reply, on its letterhead, October 1916, following a visit to its works by 'a Government official'. Also: a catalogue of an 'Exhibition of Original Etchings by Joseph Simpson' and other items printed by the firm; an ALS from T. W. Stephenson, 1 January 1914, complaining of the 'disappointing' sales of his 'Carlisle Diocesan Calendar', with ten newspaper cuttings of reviews of the work, all from 1914; and three original photographs, two of street scenes (presumably in Carlisle) and one of a group of British soldiers, taken by a Maymyo photographer. Among the material loosely inserted are a number of photographs of the frontage of the firms English street premises, with an engraving of the same; and a catalogue of 'Gifts for Christmas and the New Year 1922-1923'.
