Highlights of the FCO periodicals collection
Christ Church CathedralThis month’s book of the month feature focuses on highlights from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) periodicals collection.
The historical library collection of the FCO was transferred to King’s on permanent loan in 2007. The FCO periodicals collection spans the seventeenth to the twentieth century and contains some rare series that, to the best of our knowledge, are not found elsewhere in the UK.
A few of these journals have been selected to show the different strengths of the collection. In particular these journals will be of interest to researchers and students of British colonial history.
