Leaflets’ Collection

The leaflet collection of the Reading Society contains more than a thousand unbound sheets, many of which are extremely rare, including, for example, the only known copy in existence of Nelson’s proclamation to the Seven Islands of 9th October 1798. The classification is sometimes misleading because the collection includes examples which are not properly speaking leaflets or pamphlets but simply folded sheets of typewritten paper.

The main contents of the collection consist of administrative documents, such us announcements and notifications, and papers concerned with other matters such as politics, election results, obituaries, poems etc..  Chronologically, the leaflets in the Reading Society’s collection cover the government administrations experienced by the Seven Islands from the time of the Venetian Empire up to the 1930s.
