Research Notebooks

Percy Newberry's series of notebooks includes notebooks on single subjects, indexed notebooks on a range of subjects and research journals. Many of the notebooks have been numbered (in the form NB followed by a number) by Newberry and are referenced elsewhere in his research notes. As such it appears that these notebooks were used as reference books by Newberry, and they often include lists of bibliographic references for a subject.

Unfortunately it is evident that this series of notebooks is not complete and there are numbered notebooks referred to in Newberry's research material that do not appear to be in the collection.

Notes on the pomegranate, boomerang and ensigns on pots

Notebook with index at the front.

Notes on hieroglyphs and early versions of composite signs formed with the standard or sacred pole [R12] including:
-Pomegranate tree
-Boomerang
-Harpoon
-with the hieroglyph for sand dunes on top [N25]
-with the Min emblem on top [R22]

Very neat and written in prose so possibly intended for publication. Includes references to publications and museum objects. Roughly a quarter of the notebook has been used.
