Contexts: Sir H. Bulwer. 1874 - 1882 - MAA (01/12/1998). General Card for 1914.90.1 - 154: NB The Bulwer Collection of 1912 was found to be slightly confused when it was sorted out. The objects found marked "Bulwer Collection 1912" did not always tally with the description in the Annual Report. Some objects did not appear on the list at all - these have been added to the Z Register (created by the Museum’s second curator, Louis Clarke, instigated in January 1923) and as far as possible their numbers appear overleaf. All cards marked Bulwer Collection were taken out and were given the new appropriate numbers, but it was found that often there were many more of a certain kind of object than mentioned in the list. Where this has happened I have altered the original description in the accession book and on the cards in order to try to fit these in, rather than picking certain objects at random to be added to the Z Register, since apparently objects given by Bulwer filtered in at various times over the years, especially after his death, but were not recorded. Since all the objects were Zulu, I think its best to keep them together. (Note found in accession register, written by Kay Holman) - MAA (01/12/1998)
