Scope and content
Loose tile designs on paper have been organized into four boxes, each containing a three-ring binder of acid-free poly pages. Most of the designs represent single tiles but there are also plans of the pavements, some quite elaborate. Most are line drawings and tracings in graphite or ink on tissue paper, cut or torn to tile sizes; some are coloured, a few are crayon rubbings; and there are a few printed designs. The boxes also contain a few autograph letters and some notes. The folios have been numbered consecutively through the four boxes.
Compton, Alwyne (1825-1906), Anglican bishop
