Summary
  • A collection of over 2000 autographs, literary fragments, inscribed fly-leaves, book plates, title pages and printer's devices covering a period of over five centuries. Subjects range from noted figures such as Mary Wollstonecraft to unidentified schoolboys. Items of note include several pages and fragments from illuminated manuscripts, and photographs of prisoners of war on their release at the end of the American Civil War. This collection was primarily the work of Frederick Hendriks, and has a strong European focus. It was purchased by Robert Carl Sticht after Hendriks' death, when some items were removed and others relating to Australian history were added.
