Successful visit to the RGS on Monday. Was able to handle hand drawn maps of my subject’s journeys done in 1880’s – amazing. I am able to get copies too (for a price) so it will save me a lot of time not having to do them myself. An added bonus was seeing letters written by my subject and discovering that his personal journals were brought back to the RGS with a view to being published in the Proceedings of the RGS – but this didn’t actually happen. However, the journals are not filed under subject’s name so will have to do more searching to see where they might be.
