Reproduction quality

The files for many of the scanned documents are very large, some more than 100 MB. To minimise download times and save space on the servers, some of these files have been compressed, indicated by a suffix to the file name. Image quality has suffered slightly. Any researcher for whom the reproduction quality is important should contact the Secretary to request a copy of the original scanned file.
