Nineteen items, in good condition, on lightly-aged paper, arranged in the following description into seven sections: ONE. Nine Autograph Letters Signed (two more are in sections Two and Three below) from DJ to ASB. Totalling 3pp., 4to; 15pp., 12mo (12 of them landscape); 5pp., 16mo. Four dating from 1963, one from 2004, and the other four undated (but apparently also from 1963). One signed 'Douglas', another 'D. J.', and the other seven signed in full. All but one, which is addressed to 'Alan', addressed to 'Baxendale'. Eight on letterheads of the School of History, Birmingham University. With three envelopes, two with 1963 postmarks. The correspondence mainly concerns two topics: the article 'Uganda and Great Britain', co-authored by DJ and ASB, which appeared in the University of Birmingham Historical Journal, 8, 1962 (and about which on 1 January 1963 DJ writes: 'although you refer to this several times as "your article" meaning mine, my idea always is to publish it under our joint names') and ASB's application for the Wardenship of Windsor Hall, University of Reading (a letter regarding which, of 13 May 1963, is accompanied by Six below). In the last letter, dated 12 February 2004, from 29 Rudall Crescent, Hampstead, DJ discusses the treatment he has to undergo for his illness, and the fact that ASB is also suffering from cancer. TWO. Three Christmas cards 'from Madeleine and Douglas Johnson', to one of which is paperclipped an undated Autograph Letter Signed ('D.') from DJ to ASB, on both sides of small strip of paper, announcing his cancer of the oesophagus. THREE. Undated Autograph Letter Signed from DJ to ASB, at end of typed document headed 'Article on Uganda: Notes for A. S. Baxendale'. Notes and letter total 2pp., foolscap 8vo. DJ writes: 'This it seems to me is the narrowest plan we can have for a start. What do you think? I think we must go on from plan to plan, gradually filling them in until it is all complete. But again, you must say what you think.' FOUR. First part of typed draft of article 'Uganda and Great Britain', sent by DJ to his co-author ASB ('Mr Baxendale' in his hand in top right-hand corner of first page). 31pp., foolscap 8vo, paginated 1-31. With compliments slip and autograph note by Johnson: 'Point 3 to follow. | Political & economic development | growth of nationalism'. FIVE.
