with a new introduction by
This book, first published in 1980, brings together an important collection of writings by one of the most influential archivists in the English-speaking world. Most archivists know Sir Hilary Jenkinson by name, but few are familiar with his writings beyond his famous Manual of Archive Administration (1922). Remote as they may be, these essays reveal a lifetime devoted to almost every aspect of the archivist's professional endeavor. Reading them helps one appreciate the timeless preoccupations of the archivist, who may encounter novel circumstances but rarely an entirely new concern.
A new introduction to this archival classic is provided by Professor Terry Eastwood of the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia and a Fellow of the Society of American Archivists.
